This procedure consists in removing the dental pulp, disinfect and shape the root canals and to prepare a hermetic filling of the whole endodontic system.
This will remove the bacteria that have invaded the tooth and it prevents recontamination. A therapy not performed correctly, can lead to the persistence of infections that can cause abscesses, granulomas and cysts at the level of the surrounding bone.
Being a devitalized tooth increasingly fragile compared to a vital tooth, often it is necessary to protect the longevity with an inlay or sometimes with a crown.
