Endodontics treatment equipment
   Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic treatment, is a dental procedure in which
   the diseased or damaged pulp (central core) of a tooth is removed and the inside areas
   (the pulp chamber and root canals) are filled and sealed.  An inflamed or infected pulp is
   called pulpitis. It is the most common cause of a toothache. To relieve the pain and prevent    further complications, the tooth may be extracted (surgically removed) or saved by root
   canal treatment.

   Endodontic treatment is necessary as the  inflammation or infection can have a variety of    causes; deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, or a crack or chip in the tooth.
   If pulp inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can cause pain, or lead to an abscess.

   Signs of pulp damage include pain, prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold, discoloration of the    tooth, and swelling and tenderness in the nearby gums. Sometimes, there are no symptoms.
   All our dentist have received proper training in root canal treatment and are capable of
   treating the most difficult cases.

   The dentist (Endodontist) removes the inflamed or infected pulp, carefully cleans and shapes    the inside of the tooth, then fills and seals the space. Afterwards, you will return to your    dentist, who will place a crown or other restoration on the tooth to protect and restore it to
   full function. After restoration the tooth continues to function like any other tooth.

   Many endodontic procedures are performed to relieve the pain of toothaches caused by pulp    inflammation or infection. With modern techniques and anesthetics, most patients report that    they are comfortable during the procedure.

   For the first few days after treatment your tooth may feel sensitive, especially if there was
   pain or infection before the  procedure. This discomfort can be relieved with over-the-counter    or prescription medications. Follow our endodontist's instructions carefully for recovery
   and after treatment.
