Root Canal Therapy

Each tooth has a nerve at the centre which relays essential nutrients from the root of the tooth. This nerve is suspended in dental pulp which is present inside the tooth. When a tooth becomes damaged from dental issues such as a deep cavity or a break in the tooth, the pulp inside can become damaged. To save the tooth, and in some cases the surrounding teeth, the pulp must be cleaned out and filled. After the tooth has been treated a filling, or in some cases a crown, will be placed to strengthen and elongate the life of the tooth. This treatment is called Root Canal Therapy, or simply referred to as a Root Canal.

During the procedure, a gap is drilled into the tooth’s crown and pulp chamber, diseased pulp is reshaped or removed, and the tooth is permanently sealed with a gold, porcelain, or tooth-colored inlay/onlay or crown.
