Endodontic Root Canal Treatment
Inside the root of the tooth, there is a vascular-nerve package that feeds the tooth, known as the 'Dental Nerve'.
In case this tissue is damaged and/or inflamed due to untreated problems, the process of removing the tissue, shaping and cleaning the root canal, and then filling the canal with fillers is called root canal treatment. In some cases, laser-assisted treatments can be performed to increase the success of root canal treatment.
Is root canal treatment a painful procedure?
Root canal treatment is a treatment performed by numbing the patient's tooth, so it is not a painful procedure. However, some very painful or infected teeth may have numbness problems, and in this case, the tooth can be anesthetized using advanced numbing methods.
