One of the most used procedures by dentists everywhere in the world.  This treatment focuses on the root canals or roots of the tooth, in which the total extraction of the dental pulp is carried out, disinfected, cleaned, and then replaced with different materials or fillings to mimic the original shape and function of the tooth.

Why is a Root Canal Performed?

Root canals are performed on teeth with deep cavities. These cavities have been there for so long that they generated infection, later inflammation, and eventually necrosis (death) of the dental pulp. 

The inflammation of the pulp usually manifests itself with pain, which can be on different occasions: in the face, in particular head positions, when eating or drinking, etc.

The type of pain will signal Dr. Jagadeesh about the best approach to your problem and the best solution for it.
