Root Canal Treatment

The most common reason for root canal treatment is when a tooth’s nerve has died or has an inflamed pulp.

Nerve damage can eventually cause an infection around the tooth’s end, causing pain.

Removing any infected tissue from the inside of the tooth and cleaning with antibacterial solution and filling means the tooth can be saved rather than extracted.

What is root canal treatment?

Root canal treatment is where your dentist carefully cleanses and fills the small tooth canals with fine rubber-like points over two stages: the first stage is to treat the infection and remove bacteria. The second stage is to review and check that it is working.

Occasionally further treatments may be needed in the future, such as a crown. Your dentist will discuss any additional treatments with you before commencing the initial treatment so that you are informed at every stage.
