Teeth that are badly damaged or decayed may require root canal treatment.

Used to clear a tooth of infection, root canal treatment is an effective way of restoring health and function to teeth that have been damaged or decayed.

Why might I require root canal treatment?

When infection damages the pulp at the centre of a tooth, root canal treatment may be necessary. Without such treatment, the tooth is left open to decay and the infection may spread, often resulting in pain and the formation of abscesses.

What is the process of getting root canal treatment?

Root canal treatment initially involves the affected tooth being cleared of infection by your dentist. The pulp and nerve are then removed, with the tooth thoroughly cleaned before being sealed to prevent any infection recurring.

Does root canal treatment hurt?

Your dentist will use a local anaesthetic to numb the affected area prior to treatment. This will optimise your comfort throughout the root canal procedure. You may experience a small amount of discomfort during recovery, however this should be short-lived and can be treated with over-the-counter medicine.
