Root Canal Treatment is recommended when decay reaches the innermost layer of the tooth, known as pulp. This pulp carries all pain and sensation nerves. Thus, when decay occurs, bacteria colonize the root area of the tooth’s pulp and result in toothache or sensitivity to hot /cold.
In root canal treatment, this infected pulp is removed and cleaned. After that, the pulp area is filled with a biodegradable material. Visit The Port Dental Clinic for a Root Canal treatment in Calgary as our dentists ensure retaining the position of the teeth with minimum pain in the process.
