Are you teeth and gums healthy, happy and in good shape? Do you really look after your teeth and oral health on a daily basis or is it a case of not bothering to think about  it until toothache strikes or bleeding gums send you panicking to book a dental appointment?

A lack of dental routine,care and poor hygiene often leads to tooth decay. When the dental pulp of a tooth is affected,the pain in a tooth can become unbearable. Usually such a case is addressed with root canal treatment.

The pulp of the teeth can get infected due to tooth fracture or excessive pressure. When the tooth pulp is affected in such a manner, it gets infected, which results in toothache and bad breath. The only way out is to opt for root canal treatment. This procedure ensures a longer and healthier life of the tooth since all the infected pulp is extracted.

Once the treatment is over, adding a crown or cap onto the tooth is carried out to ensure that future problems are minimised. So if you are experiencing toothache or if your teeth are sensitive to hot and cold, visit a cosmetic dentist today and get rid of all your oral problems.

    Root canal treatment is done when there is no chance of tooth to be saved, and the patient doesn’t want it to be extracted although decayed. It is done to kill the vitality of the tooth and then filling it with mechanical components, and placing a cap over it.
    The procedure involves the removal of the nervous elements of the tooth which have been infected or decayed already due to microbial action or any physical pressures.
