Root canal treatment replaces a tooth’s damaged or infected pulp with a filling. The damage may be caused by untreated decay, decay beneath a filling, tooth damage due to trauma, tooth grinding (bruxism) or gum disease.
You will require a local anaesthetic, and you may need several visits to complete your treatment, depending on the complexity of your root canal.
Since your comfort is our top priority, we will ensure you come away with a positive experience. We offer anaesthesia, comfortable surroundings and music, and most importantly, TLC.
Once the procedure is finished, the treated tooth should last as long as any other tooth, provided it is kept clean and you maintain good oral hygiene.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
