Clinical Information For the Treatment Of Root Canal
What Is Root Canal?
Root Canal - Basics
A root canal is an oral procedure used to treat inflamed or infected soft tissue inside the root canal of the tooth. During the procedure, a dentist drills the tooth to expose the tissue, called pulp, and extracts the infected pulp. After cleaning the canal, the dentist seals the canal by filling it with a rubber-like material and applying a crown to protect the tooth. If untreated, an infected tooth can lead to an abscess (a collection of infected pus), nerve ending damage or removal of the tooth. Signs of an infected tooth include pain, gun sensitivity near the tooth and swelling.
Below you will find alternative and natural treatment options including those from a Chinese Medicine perspective for a Root Canal.
