Root Canals

A root canal, or 'endodontic' treatment, may be performed when the nerves of a tooth are badly damaged or diseased.

During root canal therapy an opening is made in the crown of the tooth and the nerves (or pulp) of the tooth is removed. The tooth canal is then cleaned, sealed and the pulp chamber permanently filled then sealed which helps protect and save the tooth. Most often the tooth is also fitted with a filling or a new crown in order to reinforce it.
