What is a Root Canal?
A root canal is a dental treatment used to repair and save badly damaged or infected tooth or teeth. The dental procedure involves removing the damaged area of the tooth, cleaning and disinfecting it and then filling and sealing it. This dental procedure is about as painless as a standard filling procedure.
