Root Canal Treatment

What is it?
During a root canal treatment, the dentist removes the pulp inside the tooth, disinfects and shapes the root canals, and places a filling to seal the space.

When to use it?
A root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth when it is badly decayed and when the pulp becomes infected. Without treatment, the tissue surrounding the teeth can become infected and painful abscesses may form.

Key information

  • Root canal treatment is the last resort before a tooth is lost or extracted.
  • Often a root treated tooth requires a large composite or amalgam restoration, or a porcelain crown.
  • Sometimes your dentist may recommend extraction and implant replacement as an alternative.
