When your tooth becomes badly decayed, has previously had a deep filling or has been traumatised, the nerve of the tooth may die and cause an infection.

In some cases, your tooth may need to be removed, but in many cases it may be possible to save the tooth with a root canal treatment.

How to know if you require a tooth canal treatment?

When a tooth is infected, you may experience a severe toothache, but many other factors can indicate a pulp infection. Some symptoms may include prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold foods/drinks, discomfort while chewing or even darkening of your tooth.

What is the procedure of a root canal treatment?

To make your visit more comfortable, we can give you a local anaesthetic, if required. To save your tooth, your dentist will need to remove the bacteria from the affected area and cleanse the canal. Afterwards, your oral health professional will close the canal with the required filling/crown to secure the tooth from new bacteria entering again.
