Root Canal Treatment saves teeth that otherwise would need to be removed.
When the nerve and blood vessels in a tooth have died or are dying the tooth can become very painful.
The process of root canal therapy is to clear away this infection and this enables us to keep the tooth, rather than have it removed. In many cases it is necessary to follow up this treatment with a crown, to ensure the structural integrity of the weakened tooth is maintained.
Contrary to popular belief and with the advancement of dental technology, root canal therapy is a gentle and comfortable process these days.
