Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is available at Marsh Dental Care, Huddersfield, in cases where the tooth pulp has become infected through decay or injury.
What is root canal treatment?
Root canal treatment (also called endodontics) is needed when the blood or nerve supply of the tooth (known as the pulp) is infected through tooth decay or injury.
If the pulp becomes infected, the infection may spread through the root canal system of the tooth, which can eventually lead to an abscess. If root canal treatment (RCT) is not carried out, the infection will spread and the tooth may need to be taken out.
