This is a very specialized branch of dentistry that treats infected root canals. An infected tooth does not always require a tooth extraction. The root canals may be cleaned and filled in order to arrest the infection. When the infection resolves, the tooth may be restored to proper function with a filling or a crown.

Root Canal procedure: unhealthy tooth, drilling, filing with endofile, rubber filling and crown
