Endodontics / Root Canal Treatment
Endodontics or root canal treatment refers to a dental treatment procedure that involves removal of the nerves inside a tooth. Pain in all parts of the body is transmitted via the nerves. Thus, the nerves inside the tooth transmit the sensation of pain of your teeth. When your tooth has a severe infection or has undergone trauma, the nerves and blood vessels inside it get affected and this causes severe pain which may even disturb your sleep. When this happens, we recommend you to get a root canal treatment.
Importance of keeping original teeth
A root canal treatment involves extirpation of the nerves and blood vessels inside your tooth. This is important because only the nerves are removed and you will get to keep your natural tooth, which is much stronger than an artificial one, which you would have to get if you opt for tooth removal.
