What is a root canal?
Root canal treatment (Endodontics) is a procedure which can help you if your dentist has found that you have a dead or dying nerve inside a tooth. Root canal treatment will help to prevent pain and spreading infection.
What does treatment involve?
After being made numb so that you do not feel any discomfort, your dentist will remove the affected nerve tissue and will disinfect the inside of the tooth before placing specialised filling material into this space inside the tooth root canals.
Some patients worry about having this treatment however, you need not worry, modern root canal treatments have a very good success rate and we will make sure the anaesthetic has made your tooth completely numb before treatment.
Working with our team to have regular check-ups and great dental hygiene will limit the likelihood of your having to have a root canal.
