Root canal treatment (Endodontics)

It is a dental procedure used to treat infection at the centre of a tooth (the root canal system).

The infection is caused by bacteria that live in the mouth and invade the tooth. This can happen after:

  • - tooth decay
  • - leaky fillings
  • - damage to teeth as a result of trauma, such as a fall
