Sometime before a filling, crown or bridge can be placed, root canal treatment, also known as endodontics, is required. This is needed when the pulp tissues in the tooth have become infected or inflamed.
Treatment involves the removal of the infected pulp tissues from the tooth and is the first step in saving the tooth. Debris within the canals is removed by flushing with an anti-bacterial solution before the canals are finally filled or sealed and the tooth restored to full shape and function by either a permanent filling or a crown.
