When most people hear the phrase “root canal”, they panic. The good news is that with today’s improved local anaesthetics, state of the art equipment, and advanced treatment root canals no longer have to cause fright. Root canals are now a common procedure, and at Innovative Dental’s Moonee Ponds office we are expertly practiced in the procedure.
Root canal is a procedure for damaged teeth that helps avoid extraction. Tooth damage can come from many sources –trauma, fracture from an injury, cracked fillings, or from a poor oral hygiene. While there are many things that can cause damage or decay to your teeth, there are also effective methods by which you can save those teeth, and one of those methods is root canal treatment.
