Root Canal Therapy

By: Carlton Dental Clinic  19-04-2012
Keywords: root canals

Each tooth contains a strand of dental "pulp", which provides the tooth with nutrients and nerves. This pulp extends down to the tooth's root. If the pulp becomes infected or injured, the nerves in the tooth may die, eventually leading to the death of the tooth. During root canal therapy, the pulp is removed from the tooth and permenately sealed with gold, porcelaine or a tooth-colored inlay or onlay. Root canal therapy is the only method of treatment to save a tooth with a dying pulp.
