when are root canal treatments required?
A.Decay of the teeth (cavities) if left
untreated, generally progress and gradually
destroy a significant portion of the tooth
before reaching the 'pulp' of the tooth. The
pulp of the tooth is a thin soft tissue

gives rise to a common 'dental pain'. At
this stage the tooth can only be saved by
performing a root canal treatment.

within the tooth and its replacement by an
artificial inert 'filling' material. This
procedure basically saves the tooth and
