There is a layer inside teeth called pulpa which is made of nerves and veins. When decaying reaches this layer it commonly induces pain. When decaying caused by microorganisms reach nerves they easily reproduce in this area. Tooth dies.


Microorganisms reproducing in pulpa start expanding through the tip of the tooth and form a cyst. This affects patient’s overall health too.

A root canal treatment is the solution of this problem. Root canal treatment is the cleaning of decay and microorganisms in the pulpa with special devices, and then filling the area in a way that will not let other microorganisms live and grow.
