Root canal treatment lets us save a tooth that is at risk of being lost due to infection or damage. Modern root canals are no more painful than getting a tooth filled.

Why do I need a root canal?

Every tooth has a bundle of soft tissue, called the pulp, at its centre. The pulp is vulnerable to damage and infection, especially if the tooth develops a cavity or a crack. If the infection is undetected it can spread to the tissues surrounding the tooth and form a dangerous abscess. The damage from the abscess will weaken the tooth, which can result in the tooth being lost.

Root canal treatment saves the tooth by removing the infected pulp and disinfecting the inside of the tooth. This prevents the spread of infection.

How does a root canal work?

The root canal process is simple and is performed with a local anesthetic. We make a small hole in your tooth and extract the pulp. After that, we disinfect the inside of the tooth and seal the hole with a filling. Then we can restore the tooth with a crown, if necessary.

Symptoms of an infected tooth include intense toothache and sensitivity to temperature and pressure. If you suffer from these symptoms call our office to book an examination.
