Root canal treatment
Root canal treatment, also called endodontic treatment, consists of removing the vital part of the tooth, disinfecting the entire internal root canal system of the tooth, widening the main channels and filling them with a sealing material to seal them.
Following root canal treatment, it is recommended to restore the tooth to protect it. Ideally, the tooth will receive a complete crown with or without screws. It is also possible, but less recommended, to place an amalgam or composite resin restoration, as these materials are not resistant enough to fractures.
- Extraction of the affected tooth;
- Implant or bridge placement to replace the extracted tooth.
