Root Canal Therapy
Save your tooth from extraction with a root canal treatment.
A root canal is needed when the pulp (the soft tissue inside
the tooth normally containing nerves and blood vessels)
becomes inflamed or infected as a result of:
+ Injury or trauma
+ Deep decay
+ Large fillings
Signs of pulp damage may include pain, prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold, discolouration of the tooth, swelling, tenderness of the overlying gums or a bad taste in the mouth. On the other hand, there may be no symptoms at all. If pulp inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can eventually cause pain, swelling, loss of the supporting bone and loss of the tooth.
The aim of the treatment is to remove all infection from the root canal. The root is then cleaned and filled to prevent any further infection. Root canal treatment is a skilled and time-consuming procedure. Most courses of treatment will involve two or more visits to your dentist.
Root canal treatment procedures are relatively comfortable and often painless as the tooth is anesthetised during treatment.
