Root Canal Treatment:
Bye Bye Tooth pain!
Tooth ache is one of the most common dental emergencies. When you have a tooth ache, it can keep you awake at night and it can can be so overwhelming that it prevents you from doing your daily activities. Not every tooth ache leads to tooth extraction. The best way to avoid a tooth ache is prevent it before it starts, however Root Canal Treatment (RCT) can come to rescue to save the tooth and provide relief.

When is Root Canal Therapy needed?
Root Canal Treatment or Endodontic therapy is needed when the pulp of the tooth is infected. The most common causes of pulp inflammation or infection are a cracked or chipped tooth, a deep cavity or filling, or other serious injury to the tooth. All of these can lead to irreparable damage to the pulp. The pulp of the tooth is where the nerves and blood vessels of the tooth live. When the nerves and blood vessels get invaded with bacteria, it causes irreversible damage and infection.
