When a cavity becomes too deep and is a threat to the important life-giving pulp and living tissues for your tooth, a root canal is required. A drill is sent down the infected path of the tooth to make room for some filling. Then the infection is cleansed, blocked off, and repaired to preserve the health of the tooth.
During root canal procedures, it is extremely important to rid the whole area of the infectious germs, and to prevent other bacteria and germs from invading while the treatment is in process. Ozone is a great assistance here, as it is an easy and harmless way to aid the success of the therapy.
