Root Canal Therapy is a treatment that can effectively save a painful tooth, when they only other option would be to extract it. This should be a painless dental experience, and contrary to popular belief Root Canal Therapy does not cause pain, and should be no different to experiencing a regular filling.
If there is infection inside your tooth, the nerve tissue inside the tooth is carefully removed. This area is carefully cleaned, disinfected, and shaped in such a way to prepare the tooth to be filled to ensure re-infection does not occur. Finally we seal and restore your tooth.
In many instances, if there has been significant decay or removal of tooth structure a crown may be required to restore your tooth.
