What is a root canal?
A root canal treatment is a procedure in which an infection is removed from the inside of your tooth. Once the tooth and root system are disinfected, it is filled, and a crown is placed on the tooth to keep it from breaking.
Why do I need one?
An infection in the centre of your tooth will most likely cause a lot of discomfort, sometimes pain, and that infection may spread. These infections don’t heal on their own, therefore a root canal needs to be performed to maintain the health of your tooth, mouth, and entire body.
