Before any minor procedure we ensure that our patients are comfortable and safe before proceeding with any treatment. We will sit and discuss the best treatment options for you.
A root canal is part of the Endodontic branch of dentistry. Endodontic refers to the treatment of the tooth as a whole, the nerves, the root and the inside, also known as the ‘pulp’. A Root Canal is a well-established treatment that is backed by lots of research and is usually needed when the pulp of the tooth becomes diseased or infected and needs to be removed to stop losing a tooth altogether. The procedure is designed to help the infected tooth and to prevent reinfection and to keep the natural tooth healthy.
Root canal is a minor procedure and is very easy to perform, it’s similar to a filling. The tooth will be numbed before starting the procedure. Once numb, the infected pulp gets cleaned out. A tooth cannot survive without the tissues inside, so it will be filled or covered with a crown. This treatment provides instant pain relief.
Proper oral hygiene and care can prevent any major tooth issues and stop reinfection.
