Why is Root Canal Treatment needed?

Root canal treatment is done so that the natural but infected tooth can be cleaned, treated and further remain in the mouth to maintain natural bite and healthy function of jaws. During root canal treatment, the inflamed or infected pulp is removed and the inside of the tooth is carefully cleaned and disinfected.

Saving the natural tooth with root canal treatment has many advantages:

  • Efficient chewing

  • Normal biting force and sensation

  • Natural appearance

  • Protects other teeth from excessive wear or strain



What are the consequences of not performing treatment?

  • Discomfort or pain could worsen

  • Infection and abscess of the affected tooth

  • The tooth may need to be extracted and normally need replacement
