Root Canal Treatment

If you are suffering from toothache or have noticed one or more of your teeth becoming darker in colour, you may have an abscess, which is when infection builds up in the ‘pulp’ at the centre of your tooth. In order to treat the abscess & to make sure it doesn’t spread to the rest of your body you may have to undergo ‘endodontic’ or root canal treatment.

Many people are frightened at the idea of receiving root canal treatment because of its negative reputation, but dental surgeon will use the latest technology to access the pulp chamber of your tooth & clean out the infection, making the procedure as simple & pain free as possible. Remember that root canal treatment might involve several trips to the dentist because a temporary filling is fitted to allow the tooth to settle before a permanent filling is used to seal the cleaned tooth.

Cleaning out any infection that develops is essential to the health of your teeth & taking care of your mouth by brushing & flossing regularly can help ensure that any treatment is kept to a minimum.
