Root fillings

Every tooth has a dental pulp consisting of nerves and blood vessels. Caries and tooth grinding, among others, can result in infections of the pulp. In these cases the pulp must be removed and a root filling done.

Root fillings are, as a rule, performed with a sealer material that fills the entire dental pulp. A root-filled tooth is always weak, which is why it should always be supplied with a dental crown after the root treatment.
