Root Canal Therapy

A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth.

The centre of your tooth contains living tissue called pulp. Pulp is a collection of blood vessels that helps to build the surrounding tooth. Infection of the pulp can be caused by trauma to the tooth, deep decay, cracks and chips, or repeated dental procedures. Symptoms of the infection can be identified as visible injury or swelling of the gums around the tooth, sensitivity to temperature or pain in the tooth and gums. In many cases there will be absolutely no symptoms.

Virtually all patient are able to return to their normal routines immediately following the procedure.
