Root Canal Treatment

If the need arises, our dentists can provide root canal treatment in order to be able to retain your tooth.  Root canal is required if the nerve of your tooth is no longer vital.  Root canal treatment would usually involve a series of appointments whereby the nerve of the tooth is removed and the nerve canals cleaned, shaped and sterilised, with  medicaments placed.  Usually these medicaments are left in place for a period of time before the tooth is treated at a subsequent visit, when the often complex root canal system is sealed or filled.  The tooth itself is then restored in the optimal way, often requiring a crown.

Sometimes the nerve canals of a tooth are complex, curved or calcified and require a referral to a specialist in root canal therapy, called an endodontist.  We work very closely with the most respected endodontic specialists to offer you the very best care when required.
