Project Description

Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment is needed when the nerve of the tooth is infected through decay or injury.  You may not feel any pain in the early stages of the infection.

A Severe toothache usually means damage to the nerve. The only way to keep a severely damaged tooth is to remove the nerve. This is done through special files. The root canal is then cleaned and shaped to enable a perfect seal with root canal filling materials and cement.

We use special titanium rotary files and the root canal treatment is mostly performed over two visits.

Unfortunately, a root canal treated tooth does become very brittle and can easily fracture. Crowning or overlaying the tooth with porcelain will strengthen it and prevent fracture
