Root Canal Treatment, Dental Care Clinic Clapham Junction
Root canal treatment is an often straightforward procedure to relieve dental pain and save your teeth. It’s necessary to have endodontic or root canal treatment when the inside of your tooth (the pulp) becomes inflamed or infected as a result of deep decay, repeated dental procedures, faulty crowns or a crack or chip in the tooth. Removal of the infected or inflamed pulp is the first step in saving the tooth. Under local anesthetic, an opening is made in the crown of the tooth to get access to the infected or inflamed pulp within. After the bacteria have been removed, the root canal will be filled and the tooth sealed with a filling or crown.
