What are the causes for root canal treatments?
The most common causes are:
- Deep cavity or a large filling
- Cracked tooth
- Physical blow to a tooth
- An infection of the pulp (nerve)
- Gum disease
What happens during a root canal treatment appointment?
The infected pulp is carefully cleaned out. Then the inside of the tooth is shaped and filled and sealed. Once the procedure is completed, the tooth needs a permanent filling.
Do I need a post and a crown after root canal treatment?
In most cases, a post and a crown are needed. Your dentist will assess if you need them after root canal treatment.
