Root Canal Therapy


Root canal therapy involved removing diseased nerve tissue from within the root of the tooth.  Depending on the tooth the number of root canals can vary, from one at the front of the mouth to three to four canals in molar teeth.  It is usually carried out over 2 visits with a dressing left in the root canal between appointments to eliminate the bacteria causing the disease.  The canals are then filled with a rubber based material and the tooth is restored.

Most people experience little or no discomfort with root canal treatment and enjoy a very high rate of success
