Root Canal treatment is necessary when the pulp also known as the nerve of the tooth, becomes inflamed or infected.
There are a whole bunch of reasons you might need a Root Canal treatment
If pulp inflammation or infections is left untreated, it can cause pain or lead to an abscess.
Patients generally need a root canal when they notice their teeth are sensitive, particularly to hot and cold.

Our clinic stays open late to treat emergencies such as tooth pain, cracked teeth, bleeding gums, tooth extraction, or lost fillings.
Root canal treatment begins with the standard drill to access the inside of the tooth, and slower speed round drills can then be used to remove decay and expose the canals. Tiny files are then used to remove the contents of these canals. The manual root canal treatment method involves increasing file sizes that gently clean and shape these canals.
A tooth may have one or more canals. The manual treatment method of filling the canals involves checking the cone size and placing rubber cones covered with a liquid sealer into the canals. Once enough cones have been placed, spreading instruments can then be used to compact the cones even further. After the canal is tightly sealed, the excess rubber cones can be removed with a heated tool.
The heated instrument can also heat and compact the cones to fill the canal space better. One or more posts may be placed to strengthen the tooth and retain the filling for optimum treatment. In this case, a cursed lake resin is used to fill the space. It’s soft when placed in the tooth and hardened with a bright light.
At this point, the tooth is still weakened and can break with heavy biting. The best treatment usually involves preparing the tooth and covering it with a full crown, sometimes called a cap. Any pathology at the tip of the root should disappear with time, and the tooth will be saved.
