Root canal treatment is a dental procedure used to treat infection at the centre of a tooth (the root canal system). It's also known as 'endodontics'.
The infection is caused by bacteria that live in the mouth and invade the tooth. This can happen after:
- 1. Tooth Decay
- 2. Leaky Fillings
- 3. Damage to teeth as a result of trauma, such as a fall
We use modern technology such as close magnifications, use of rubber dam and proper files (rotary endodontics) for the greater success of these treatments.
