It is one of the most common treatment undergone in the oral cavity. It relieves the pain and also retains the natural tooth in the oral cavity.
The tooth has two parts – crown and root. The crown constitutes – enamel, dentin, pulp. Root constitutes – cementum, dentin and root canals filled with pulpal tissue. When an infection enters the tooth, it passes through enamel, dentin and reaches the pulp. Inside the pulp, infection reaches the root through root canals and enters the bone below the tooth. The root canal is removal of all the infection present in the pulp. The sterile, cleaned area in the pulp is sealed and tooth is covered with permanent restoration. This treatment has to be performed with utmost care and bacteria free instruments, then the perfect sealing of the tooth is possible.

I had a lovely experience with great people who explain everything; every step of the way. Everyone should come here, it’s so different to a normal dentist.
I was initially very sceptical to begin with, but once I have the initial implants and returned for my teeth to be made and fitted I was pleased with the way I was treated and the outcome.
To Dr. Urvi,I was so unhappy before my treatment, now I grin confidently. I had 8 crowns and 2 bridges fitted. They look so natural; it’s as if I have always had nice teeth. Dr Urvi was careful, gentle and friendly.
This is the best experience of dental treatment I have ever had. The clinic is comfortable with the staff always smiling and friendly,I would now like to use you as my regular dentist.
I visited Dentcure for teeth whitening and for dental cavity. I am very satisfied by the overall experience. Both Dr Sayali and Dr Kanika are very friendly and professional doctors. They explain you in detail about the treatment and suggest solutions. I will highly recommend Dentcure for any time of Dental treatments.
