Root canal treatment is done when decay will likely damage or has already killed a tooth. During a root canal, a dentist removes the pulp from the center of a tooth and fills the pulp cavity thermoplastic material that seals it and prevents future infection. This can prevent the development of a painful infection in the pulp that may spread to other teeth.
A root canal can also treat an infection that has developed into an abscessed tooth. This procedure can remove a toothache, stop infection, and promote healing.
A root canal may be the treatment option for you if you have a tooth ache that lasts for hours or prevents you from sleeping.
Because of improvements in dental medications, techniques and technologies, the root canal process has a better than 90% long-term success rate.
