Root canal treatment (endodontic treatment) becomes necessary when the pulp of the tooth (nerve) is affected by deep caries or infection.
How well endodontic treatment is performed directly affects the life of the tooth. In addition, after correct root canal treatment, the color of the tooth does not change. Depending on the complexity, root canal treatment takes from 45 minutes to two hours. This procedure is performed under anesthesia and only mild sensitivity is possible after treatment.
Any endodontic treatment is carried out under a microscope and the results are monitored by X-ray immediately after the procedure.
