Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment can be necessary when the nerve of a tooth becomes exposed, inflamed or infected.

What are the symptoms of an inflamed or infected nerve?

Sensitivity, swelling, discolouration and tooth pain can all be signs that a nerve has become inflamed or infected.


This can be the result of deep tooth decay, cracked or chipped teeth, failing crowns, dislodged fillings or previous dental procedures.


If an inflamed or infected root nerve remains untreated, it can cause significant discomfort. This may lead to an abscess where the infection can potentially spread.


What is root canal treatment?

Root canal treatment is an effective and potentially long-lasting way to treat the infection and save your tooth. The treatment cleans and disinfects the root canal of the tooth and removes the infected or inflamed dental nerve.


Your dentist will use a local anaesthetic for maximum comfort during the procedure. A fillingonlay or dental crown can then be used to restore and strengthen the tooth.
