treatment of Root canal



Inflammation of the dental pulp (pulpitis)

sometimes causes extreme pain and should

therefore be treated by your dentist.


If the inflammation is at an advanced stage

and the dental pulp (pulpa) cannot be

conserved it has to be removed.

Root treatment involves removing the dental

pulp under local anaesthetic, cleaning and

disinfecting of the root canal as well as using

a filling material with the best possible

sealing and wall-permanent properties.

Although the tooth is no more vital after root

treatment, it can be conserved

and continues to maintain its function.
