When the root of a tooth or the soft tissue inside a tooth becomes infected, you may require root canal (or endodontic) treatment to clean and disinfect the area.
The inside of a tooth can become compromised due to disease, damage or severe decay. It occurs when bacteria attack the nerve or soft tissue, due to weakness in the external dental enamel.
If you experience any of the following symptoms, you may require a root canal treatment by one of our experienced dentists:
Without appropriate treatment, you risk losing your tooth and experiencing ongoing pain.
This is an intricate and delicate procedure which entails removing the top section of your tooth to access the internal structure.
Your dentist will use thin files to eliminate the infection from the nerve, they may apply a disinfectant to clean out the interior canal and get rid of any residual bacteria.
To end the procedure, you may require crown to be placed on top of the affected the tooth so that it can be properly sealed and strengthened.
We will use local anaesthetic to minimise any discomfort. If you require additional sedation we can discuss this beforehand.
