A root canal involves taking out the root of the tooth, cleaning and then filling with a material that helps prevent any further infections. The purpose is to allow the tooth, without a living nerve, to remain in the mouth without pain. It is always preferable to save a tooth than to place an implant and crown if possible, as there is nothing stronger and better than your own natural teeth.
Regular dental check-up attendance is vital to minimise the risk of root canals occurring and potential loss of teeth.
After a root canal is complete, a restoration is required, such as, a CEREC crown or white filling.
