Endodontic Therapy

Endodontic therapy or Root Canal treatment is the elimination of infection and protection of the decontaminated tooth from future microbial invasion. Root canals and their associated pulp chamber are within a tooth and contain nerve tissue, blood vessels and a number of other cellular entities. Endodontic therapy includes the complete removal of these structures, the subsequent cleaning, shaping and decontamination with small files, irrigating solutions, and subsequent filling those canals with a rubber material called gutta percha.
