Root Canal Therapy - Huddersfield
What is root canal treatment?
Root canal treatment (RCT), which is also known as Endodontics, is required when the nerve (known as the pulp) or blood supply becomes infected through decay or injury.
Why is root canal required?
If the pulp becomes infected then the infection can spread into the root canal system of the tooth. This could lead to an abscess and is RCT is not carried out the infection can spread and the tooth may require extraction.
Does it hurt?
No. Treatment is carried out under local anaesthetic and should not prove any different to having any other filling.
