The root canal is a treatment at Dentrixx which repairs and save damaged or infected teeth. This procedure involves removing the infected area of the tooth (pulp), cleaning and disinfecting it, and filling it up. Common causes that affect the pulp are repeated dental treatment for fractures, deep cavities, dentures or trauma. The term “root canal” comes from the cleaning roots of the teeth
Patients normally need a root canal when there is redness or infection in the roots of a tooth. During root canal treatment, an endodontist of Dentrixx who specializes in such treatment carefully removes the pulp inside the tooth, cleans, disinfects and shapes the root canals, and places a filling to seal the space.
