Root canal therapy, or endodontics, is the process of removing the tooth's pulp, cleaning all the infected tissue in the pulp chamber and root canal. This is done at Torrens Dental Care using small dental files until the pulp tissue is gone. The tooth is then disinfected and closed. After a short period of time (one week or more) the tooth will be reopened and the therapy will be completed. Because a tooth has no pulp it will get brittle over time. It is therefore recommended that a crown be placed over the remaining tooth to protect it from further damage.
