Root Canal Treatment

The decaying of teeth (cavities), if left untreated, develop further and gradually destroy a significant portion of the tooth before reaching the ‘pulp’ of the tooth. This pulp is a thin and soft tissue present in the tooth canals, predominantly consisting of nerves and blood vessels. If the infection reaches the pulp, it results in what is commonly known as ‘dental pain’. At this stage, the tooth can only be saved by performing a root canal treatment.
