Root Canal Treatment

Sometimes a tooth fractures or gets so badly infected the nerve inside dies, which can lead to pain and swelling.  In these cases we have a few options, the last of which is extracting the tooth.  We can in a quite a few cases, save the tooth by removing the infected or dying nerve from within the root and filling the canal.

As you may imagine this is quite a delicate and skilful procedure.  However you are in good hands as our dentists are very skilled in this and have a high success rate.  On the rare occasion that they feel that further expertise is needed they can refer you to a specialist (endodontist).

After root canal treatment the tooth can become more brittle, your dentist may advise that the tooth be crowned in order to restore the strength and or appearance.

For the first few days after treatment there may be some discomfort, this should however settle as the infection clears.
