Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal Treatment is often perceived as an uncomfortable and painful procedure, which many people delay having. However the main purpose of root canal therapy is to relieve pain caused by an infected nerve.


Root Canal Tooth Decay

Root Canal Treatment


Root Canal Treatment may be required due to an accident where the tooth received a heavy blow or because of deep decay. If the decay is left untreated, an abscess may develop increasing pain and the likelihood of the tooth needing to be removed.


The procedure for a root canal is normally completed over 2 appointments, 2-8 weeks apart. When completed a porcelain crown is often recommended to protect the tooth from fracturing.


When treatment is finished the tooth is saved and restored back to its full function and appearance.
