Root Canal Treatment is a specialist dental procedure when the soft pulp tissues within the tooth has been damaged through injury or through tooth decay. The pulp connects to the tip of the root and when the pulp becomes infected, the overall health of the tooth is compromised. An infected nerve can cause an abscess and severe pain. At Premier Dental Care, our dentists can help to save the tooth by cleaning and refilling the pulp and prevent further spreading of the infection into the root canal system.
Root Canal Treatment has a high success rate but can be a lengthy treatment over one or two courses. After treatment the tooth may require strengthening and therefore a crown is generally recommended. Our dentists would be happy to discuss any questions or concerns.
