Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment is carried out when the soft pulp (inside your tooth) is either inflamed or dead. The pulp is a tissue made up of nerves, connective tissue and blood vessels. Pulp may become inflamed or may die if either there is significant decay in a tooth, if there is a large restoration (filling or crown) or if the tooth has been subjected to trauma. The benefits of endodontic treatment or root canal therapy are numerous. Since endodontic care eliminates the need for extraction you are able to keep your natural tooth. As with all our treatment we aim to make this a totally pain free experience with the use of local anaesthetic and careful monitoring.
