The space inside the hard
layers of each tooth is called the root canal system.
Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic
treatment, is the process of removing infected, injured
or dead pulp from your tooth and seal that space using
gutta purcha . If left untreated, an infected tooth can
cause serious oral health problems.
This system is filled with
soft dental pulp made up of nerves and blood vessels
that help your tooth grow and develop. A successful root
canal treatment lets you keep the tooth rather than
having to pull it out. Keeping your tooth helps to
prevent your other teeth from drifting out of line and
causing jaw problems. Saving a natural tooth avoids
having to replace it with an artificial tooth.
