Endodoncia o Root Canal (english)
The terrible tooth ache and inflamed cheeks due to infection is, in many cases, caused by diseased dental pulp (nerve).
Why does the dental pulp become infected? The most frequent causes are:
- Profound dental caries
- Dental traumas
- Cummulative effects of distinct procedures
A root canal consists of the removal of the affected pulp tissue using specialty instruments and anti-septic solutions, preparing the root canals to be sealed and avoiding future infections.
