Root Canals

What our dentists do?

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy or endodontic treatment is carried out by your dentist to save a diseased tooth. During the procedure, your dentist removes the dead pulp inside the core of the tooth. 

This procedure is necessary when the pulp becomes infected or damaged, causing you to suffer from pain or an abscess or serious tooth decay.  Once the pulp is removed, the empty tooth chamber is cleaned and sealed, and you will be pain-free once again.  

Your dentist will then rebuild the outside of the tooth so it will look as good as new.  Normally, a root-filled tooth will require a laboratory crown within 12-months of undertaking the root canal therapy provided the symptoms have settled and an x-ray shows no signs of pathology.
