A root canal is a treatment that repairs and saves a tooth that is badly decayed or infected. It protects the gum from possible infection; prevents nerve decay and restores a tooth with pulp damaged by cavities, fractures and other factors.
During a root canal procedure, the pulp or nerve is removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed.
At dentalia, we use The Endodontic Rotary File System, a state-of-the-art technology that allows a better removal of the decaying pulp.
Generally, a root canal procedure requires 2 visits over a 1-week period.
2nd visit (1 week after):
With proper care, most teeth that have had a root canal treatment can last as long as other natural teeth and often for a lifetime.
