But problems such as decay and disease can impact a tooth. However, advances in dental technology now mean that it is easier than ever to save teeth wherever possible.
One procedure that does this is called root canal treatment (or endodontic treatment) that treats an infection inside a tooth, offering relief from dental pain and, ultimately, saving your teeth.
Endodontic treatment addresses disease or injury to the soft tissue inside a tooth called dental pulp that extends from crown to roots. If the pulp becomes inflamed or infected, we can remove it relieving your pain and discomfort.
We numb the tooth, so you won’t feel anything and a shield isolates the tooth to keep it dry and clean. Fluid is put in the canal to rinse our debris and get rid of the infection and the pulp is removed. Using small files we clean and shape the canal, then fill and seal the root canals.
A tooth that has had root canal treatment often lasts a lifetime, so you can smile with confidence.
