Root canal treatment can also be called endodontics. This type of treatment is needed when the pulp is irreversibly infected/inflamed due to decay or trauma. The treatment may need to be carried out over 2 appointments.
First, the dentist will have to find and gain access to the canals in the teeth, these canals are then cleaned and shaped. This is done to remove the inflamed/infected pulp (which is causing the pain) and to rid the canals of bacteria. The roots of the tooth will then be filled with a natural rubber material and then a final restoration will be placed – this could be in the form of a filling or crown depending on the tooth in question.
