ROOT CANAL TREATMENT
The aim of root canal treatment (also called endodontic treatment) is to save a tooth that has been badly damaged due to decay, disease or injury. Root canal treatment is the alternative to extraction, allowing you to function better.
Root canal treatment usually requires multiple appointments to complete. The process involves removing the nerve, bacteria, and decay and the remaining space is then filled with a dental material to prevent bacteria from re-entering the space.
To reduce the risk of fracture and restore the function of the tooth which has been root canal treated, dental crowns might be recommended.
Our gentle dentists will ensure you are well informed and comfortable during this procedure.
