What is a root canal?
A root canal is the cleaning, shaping, and filling of the root canal system of a tooth. It is the process by which the blood and nerve supply of a tooth are removed because of an infection. The remaining space is then subsequently filled with a sealer and a rubber-type material, known as gutta-percha). Root canals help prevent reinfection to save your natural tooth and maintain your overall oral health.Book An Appointment
