Root canal treatments can be necessary to repair and save teeth that have been badly decayed or infected. Root canals may also be needed when an injury or large cavity damages the root of the tooth. A root canal procedure consists of the nerve and pulp being removed, with the inside of thetooth being cleaned and sealed. If the tooth does not receive proper treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth can become infected and an abscess may form.
Gutta Percha is the name of the root canal filling material. During treatment, it is placed in the canals and the tooth will be sealed with a temporary filling in order to protect the area from contamination. Usually, a crown is then placed over the tooth to help seal and protect the area from future damage or recontamination.
