Root Canal

Root canalRoot Canal saves your teeth!

Inside the tooth is a soft living tissue called the pulp (also called the ‘nerve’). The pulp contains blood vessel fibres and nerves. A Root Canal is needed when the pulp becomes inflamed or infected. Teeth rarely cause pain until it is an established Root Canal infection.

The process begins with the the inflamed or infected pulp being removed. The inside of the root canal is then carefully cleaned and shaped. The clean space is then filled and sealed. Once this is completed we will then place a crown or other restoration to protect and restore it to full function. After restoration the tooth continues to look, feel and function like any other tooth.
