Root Canal Treatment Is Also Known As Endodontics. We Always Try To Save A Tooth.

We will always try to preserve a natural tooth if we can since as a rule, a natural tooth will have better function than an artificial one.

We use root canal treatment to treat infection within the root canal system at the tooth’s centre. When there is an infection in the blood or nerve supply of the tooth it will spread and the tooth may be lost if root canal treatment is not performed. Root canal treatment removes all of the infection from inside the root canal system. The root canal is sealed with a filling or crown so that it does not become reinfected.

Root canal treatment usually requires two or three appointments with the dentist.
