A Root Canal treatment is performed for repairing and saving a tooth that is badly decayed or infected. A tooth’s nerve and pulp can become irritated, inflamed, and even infected due to deep decay, a crack, repeated dental procedures on a tooth or large fillings, or due to a chip in the tooth. During the procedure, there is a removal of the infected pulp and nerve from the root of the tooth, followed by cleaning and shaping of the root canal. After that, the tooth is filled and sealed with a restorative material. Finally, the dentist places a crown on the tooth for protecting and restoring it to its original function. The right specialist to consult for root canal treatment is an experienced Endodontist or a Dental Surgeon. The success rate for the treatment remains around 86-92%.
