Root Canal Treatment gives you relief from severe pain due to tooth decay. Root canal treatment or “Endodontic therapy” as it is called involves a procedure wherein, the inflamed or infected pulp tissue of a painful tooth is removed and the inside of the tooth is carefully cleaned, disinfected and then filled and sealed with a rubber like material called Gutta Percha. Afterwards, the tooth is restored and subsequently crowned for protection. After restoration, the tooth continues to function like any other tooth and you can continue eating the foods you love. With proper care, most of the teeth that have had root canal treatment will last for a lifetime.
