Root Canal Therapy

Also known as endodontic treatment, the aim of this treatment

is to save a tooth by removing the infected tissue within the tooth roots of the tooth. Often the only alternative to root canal would be extraction of the tooth.

Pain to hot and cold, or a severe tooth ache can be indications that root canal therapy is needed. The treatment can be performed painlessly and involves cleaning and shaping the internal canals of the tooth to ensure all diseased tissue is removed. A second visit is usually needed to then fill the tooth with a durable plastic material.

These teeth are considered fragile and special care is needed in restoring them. We aim to seal out bacteria from re-entering the tooth and also prevent fracture of the tooth. Usually a crown is recommended.
