Nothing can be as good as your natural tooth! But sometimes your natural tooth may need specialised care for it to remain healthy. The root is that part of the tooth that sits in the bone below the gum and is usually twice as long as the crown. The pulp is the living tissue of the tooth with blood supply and nerve supply. If the dental caries involves the pulp, the pulp gets infected causing pain. Root canal treatment removes the infected pulp and seals the canal with a filling material. A root canal treatment at our practice is as comfortable as having a cavity filled.
