Root Canal Treatments can be a little uncomfortable, but we at Dental Sphere follow the latest techniques to make painful processes easier. The inflamed or infected pulp in the tooth is removed during root canal treatment and the inside portion of the tooth is carefully cleaned and disinfected. After this, the gap is filled and sealed with a rubber-like material called gutta-percha. Then, the tooth is restored with a filling and a crown for its protection.
