When the caries or the decay spreads beyond the first and second layers of the tooth and reaches the nerves, root canal therapy becomes necessary. It relieves the pain caused by an infected or abscessed tooth. The infected nerves are removed, cleaned and filled. If left untreated tooth infection can turn into an abscess and cause bone loss in the jaw.
Root canal can be done painlessly using local anaesthetics and proper pain caused by the infection and thus allowing you to enjoy all the foods you love without any pain, discomfort or sensitivity.
