A root canal is necessary when the nerve and blood vessels of the tooth (called the "pulp") become infected or damaged in some manner. The common causes for an infected dental pulp are deep cavities, broken tooth structures, external injury or trauma. Occasionally, a nerve degenerates for an unknown reason and root canal therapy is needed.
A root canal, known as endodontic treatment, repairs unhealthy or severely damaged teeth. During your root canal procedure, the doctor will remove the damaged pulp tissues inside the pulp chamber. The canal is disinfected, shaped and sealed. The tooth is then restored with a crown or filling, returning your tooth to a natural and highly esthetic appearance.
Our doctors are trained and qualified to perform root canal procedures in our safe and secure environment. We always ensure that our patients are comfortable during the process.
