What is root canal?
Root canal or enodontic treatment involves removing infection from inside a tooth. By removing infected dental pulp that is contained in the fine channel inside the tooth, otherwise known as the root canal, there is a good chance we can save your tooth before it dies and needs to be extracted. Additionally once the infected pulp is removed we disinfect the space and reshape the canal. The canals are sterilised again and a final filling seals the tooth.
Why have root canal?
We use root canal therapy or endodontic treatment to save teeth that have been badly damaged in an accident or due to disease and decay. Dentists can save teeth from extraction by providing root canal treatment. It is much better to have your own teeth because they are stronger and are much better at eating and biting.
