Root canal therapy is indicated when your tooth’s pulp is infected, usually due to damage to the tooth or tooth decay. The treatment is carried out using the latest technology & involves removing the infected tissue from inside the tooth, thoroughly cleaning and sterilising it to ensure no infection remains, and then filling the space to seal and protect it from further infection.
Following a root canal, we will often advise on the placement of a crown to reinforce the affected tooth. This is because, once the root has died and there is no more blood supply to the tooth, it will become more brittle and prone to cracking or breaking.
