Root canal therapy is required when the nerve in your tooth is inflamed beyond repair or has died. This may occur as a result of deep dental decay or even getting an injury or knock to your tooth. If this is required, we will remove the nerve from your tooth and replace it with a comfortable filling material. Despite what you may have heard, the majority of root canal treatments are completed under anaesthesia without any pain whatsoever! Root canal treatment can absolutely be a safe and long lasting treatment available to patients wanting to save their own natural teeth and avoid tooth removal.
