A ‪#‎rootcanal‬ is a treatment used to repair and save a ‪#‎tooth‬ that is badly decayed or has become infected. In this procedure, the inflamed or infected pulp is removed and the inside of the tooth is carefully cleaned and disinfected, then filled and sealed with a material called gutta-percha and then restored with a ‪#‎dentalcrown‬ for protection, and the tooth continues to function like any natural tooth.
