Root Canal Treatment
To Save Your Smile
Root canal treatment is a means of saving a tooth that has been damaged by deep decay, breakage, or infection.
The purpose of this treatment is to remove the bacteria from inside your tooth, disinfect your root canals then restore your tooth to good health, effectively saving it from extraction.
The treatment begins by making a small hole through your tooth into the pulp chamber, locating and measuring the root canals, then cleaning and widening them using fine instruments called files.
Once clean, your root is sealed protecting it from re-infection.
In most cases any abscesses will start to heal at this point and with your discomfort banished and your tooth saved, your smile will be reinstated.
