Root Canal Care
Root canal treatment is needed when the pulp inside your tooth becomes infected through tooth decay or injury, allowing bacteria to enter the tooth.
This infection spreads and may lead to an abscess, which can be painful, or a sleeping abscess with no symptoms. Either one has the potential to cause a lot of discomfort if left untreated. At this moment, you would need either:
1. Extraction of the tooth
2. Root canal treatment to save the tooth
Is Root Canal Painful?
No it is not. You will receive a local anaesthetic and the treatment overall should feel no different to having an ordinary filling placed.
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, using specialist equipment to prevent further contamination from the mouth.
Root canal treatment is a highly skilled procedure, with most courses of treatment involving more than one visit. However, it will save your tooth from being extracted!
Our dentists can perform root canal treatment to stop the infection from spreading and will preserve as much of your tooth as possible.
