Root Canal Treatment
Root Canal Therapy is also known an Endodontic therapy, often quoted as “root canal“. This treatment is performed on a tooth when it is decayed, infected and there is a danger of being lost or a tooth which has been filled and won’t stop hurting.
A Root Canal is performed in our practice under local anesthesia. It takes two visits to start and complete a root treatment; however, the visits may vary.
Firstly, the dentist will gently remove infected or inflamed pulp and the tooth is then carefully shaped and disinfected. The canal is then filled and sealed.
After the treatment is complete we suggest you avoid biting or chewing especially on the treated area until a permanent crown or inlay is provided.
