Root canal treatment can be an effective way to save your natural tooth
When a tooth’s pulp, which is the living tissue at its center, gets damaged or infected, it can cause severe pain. A root canal, technically called endodontic treatment, may be performed to save the tooth and eliminate the infection and discomfort. Thanks to advancements in dentistry, they’re on par with getting a filling. In fact, another way to describe a root canal is a permanent filling that reaches all the way down into the root of the tooth.
