Root canal treatment, also called endodontics, is arguably the most misinterpreted dental treatment there is. Contrary to its popular associations to pain and discomfort, Root Canal Therapy is a safe and highly effective way of to soothe the toothache brought about by an infected tooth pulp.

Root Canal Therapy involves taking out the infected soft tissues from the pulp chamber, followed by especial cleaning of canals inside of the tooth, and replacing it with a especial filling. Usually, the treated tooth is restored using a Dental Crown (sometimes called a ‘Cap’) to ensure that it can regain its optimal form and function. The entire process of having a root canal treatment may require about two to three dental appointments.
