Root Canal Treatment Procedure
The thailand endodontist makes a canal in the crown of the tooth that allows for removal of the damaged pulp. After removal, the thailand endodontist cleans the canal and shapes it to a feasible form for filling. In some cases the thailand endodontist may choose to use medications for preventing infection by removing germs from the teeth.
During the final visit, the thailand endodontist cleans and fills the root canal and pulp chamber with a post and core buildup. A dental crown is then capped over the tooth to strengthen and protect the tooth. Proper oral care and regular dental visits ensure that the treated tooth remains healthy.
The primary goal of root canal treatment is to create an environment within the root canal system which allows for healing and continued maintenance of the health of periradicular tissue. A successful root canal treatment procedure is one which has removed bacteria in the tooth and completely filled the canals.
