Root canal treatment is a common modern dental procedure that can help to repair teeth that may otherwise require an extraction.
What is Root Canal Therapy?
Root canal therapy provides a way for your dentist to treat severely damaged or infected teeth, potentially removing the need to extract the tooth.
Since root canal treatments helps to save your existing tooth, it is often categorised as a Restorative Dental procedure.
Root canal treatment works by removing any injured or infected tissue from inside the tooth and its roots.
Following that, your dentist will disinfect the root and pulp area of the tooth to help prevent the infection from recurring.
A simple dental filling is then placed over the opening in the tooth that was used to access the pulp and root system.
