How Does a Root Canal Work?

Root canal treatment, also known commonly as root canal therapy, is a procedure used to treat problems of the inside of the tooth, or the dental pulp. This is an effective treatment that is used to save the tooth when it otherwise would have had to be pulled out. The treatment could involve from one to three visits to your dentist. During treatment, the diseased pulp is removed and the pulp chamber and root canals of the tooth are cleaned and sealed, the dentist will make sure the complete tooth is now clean and sterile to prevent further problems occurring.
