Root canals are a procedure to treat and save a severely infected or damaged tooth by removing the infected pulp and sealing the tooth.
Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic therapy, is performed to save a tooth that has a severely infected or damaged pulp. The procedure involves removing the infected or damaged pulp from the tooth's interior, disinfecting the canals, and filling them with a biocompatible material. This process helps alleviate pain, eliminate infection, and preserve the natural tooth structure, often eliminating the need for tooth extraction.
Dental fillings are used to restore damaged teeth by filling cavities and preventing further decay.
Dental cleanings involve the removal of plaque and tartar to maintain oral health and prevent dental issues.
Extractions involve the removal of a tooth or multiple teeth due to various reasons, such as severe decay or overcrowding.
