When infected by bacteria, the pulp of the tooth which is located in its center, undregoes an irreversible inflammation creating intense pain. In these cases, root canal therapy is necessary.
During a root canal treatment, the pulp which contains the nerve is removed. The root canals are prepared, cleaned and finaly sealed with an elastic material called guttapercha. Root canal therapies in our Clinic are performed by Endodontists, specialized dentists in this field. Most often an endodontic treatment can be completed in a one appointment.
It has been documented that endodonticaly treated teeth must be restored as soon as possible with a post and a crown or an onlay. A properly treated and restored tooth can continue to function without problems or pain for many years.
