What is root canal treatment?
A root canal is performed in order to save a tooth when the dental pulp or nerve centre has become infected or has died. It avoids the need to remove the tooth entirely, making it more appealing option. It is quite a simple and painless treatment, and it’s designed to retain as much of your natural tooth structure as possible.
Infection usually occurs due to decay or a fractured tooth that may cause significant pain. If left untreated, the infection will lead to a dental abscess, as well as swelling and infection of the jawbone which can be even more painful. Our highly trained team use 3D X-ray imaging to successfully diagnose if a root canal is required.
