Root Canal Therapy

Root Canal Therapy is a sequence of treatment for the pulp of a tooth whose end result is the elimination of infection and protection of the de- contaminated tooth from future microbial invasion. To cure the infection and save the tooth, the dentist drills into the pulp chamber and removes the infected pulp and then drills the infected nerve out of the root canal(s) with long needle-shaped drills. After this is done, the dentist fills each of the root canals and the chamber with an inert material and seals up the opening. This procedure is known as root canal therapy. With the removal of nerves and blood supply from the tooth, it is best that the tooth be fitted with a crown which increases the prognosis of the tooth by six times.
