Root Canal Treatment

When a tooth has very deep decay, a very deep filling or has undergone trauma the nerve within that tooth can die. This in turn causes inflammation and resulting pain. Root canal treatment is a brilliant way of alleviating this pain and subsequent infection while retaining the tooth in the dental arch.

The nerve that has died is removed and replaced with an inert filling material before a filling or crown is placed to restore the tooth back to its original state. In the majority of cases this procedure is extremely successful, helped by using the latest technologies and equipment in our practice.
