Q: What is root canal treatment?
A: Root canal treatment is the process of treating the inner layers of the tooth. This is necessary when the dental pulp becomes inflamed or infected. This can happen when you have deep decay when you have faulty crowns when you have a chip in the tooth and more. Your dentist will remove the infected and damaged portion of the tooth and will fill the tooth with a special dental material. Then, he will complete the treatment by supporting the tooth with a restoration, like a filling or crown.
Q: Is root canal treatment painful?
A: Because of modern technology and advanced treatments, root canal treatment is no more uncomfortable than dental filling treatment.
Q: How long does root canal treatment take?
A: Typically, root canal treatment takes 1-2 hours, depending on the severity of the damaged tooth.
