This treatment allows us to repair and save the tooth/teeth that are badly decayed resulting in a possible infection and to rid of associated pain.
The aim of root canal treatment is to get rid of the damaged pulp and the bacteria that are causing the infection. It involves removing inflamed or dead nerves and blood vessels from the centre of your tooth. This is done by removing the affected tissue from the centre of the tooth and roots. The empty root canal system is then cleaned, filled and a permanent seal put over the top of your tooth. The procedure may be carried out over one or two visits to your dentist.
