Even the bravest of patients may quake in their boots when they hear those three little words “root canal treatment”, but in reality this procedure is nothing to be scared of, and can in fact be essential to saving an infected tooth.
Teeth become infected through decay, accident and injury, which is why you should always get even minor cracks in a tooth seen to by a dentist as a matter of urgency. If your tooth does get infected, root canal treatment is necessary to clear out all traces of this infection. This is a skilled and time-consuming procedure, which may require more than one appointment. Your tooth will then be filled and you may also be fitted with a crown for additional strength.
