Root Canal Treatment

Every tooth consists of three different layers. The outermost and hardest layer is enamel, and the second layer is dentin. The third is pulp, which is the cavernous space where the live tissue and nerve of each tooth is located.

Root canal treatment is indicated if the nerve/pulp of a tooth is damaged or infected because of decay, trauma, or deep fillings. During the root canal procedure, the inflamed/infected tissue is removed from the canal inside the root of the tooth, which is then cleaned and sealed.

Before recommending root canal therapy, Dr. Roshan collects a thorough history of any symptoms for accurate diagnosis. The treatment will be done in one or two appointments using advanced techniques and materials to make the procedure quicker and more comfortable. After root canal treatment is complete, a crown must be placed on the tooth to safeguard the tooth against fracture.
