Route Canal Treatment

Root Canal Treatment

A root canal treatment is required if the part of the tooth which senses temperature or sweet things is no longer functioning correctly and needs to be removed. 

This is a painless procedure and is sometimes done in one or two visits.  This is done using local anaesthetic and a dental dam to isolate the tooth away from the rest of the mouth. 

The inside of the tooth is disinfected and cleaned, measured and shaped, then filled.  Most teeth that have been root treated will require a further restoration over the top of the tooth, but this is assessed on an individual basis. 

Once a root canal treatment has been completed successfully, the tooth will be saved but it will no longer sense hot, cold or sweet things.

It’s time to book.
