Root canal treatment, otherwise known as endodontics, is necessary when a tooth becomes severely infected, which can happen when you suffer a serious crack in your tooth, or you have advanced decay.

What can you expect from a root canal?

Root canal therapy is a commonly used treatment that salvages a tooth that may otherwise have been extracted. In many cases you may not present any symptoms, which is why preventative dentistry is so important when it comes to preserving your natural teeth. Tooth sensitivity can be one of the symptoms of an infected tooth, so if you have been experiencing this for over a week consistently, make an appointment with us as soon as possible. When your dental pulp – the tissues in your tooth – become infected, your dentist will fill the canal chambers of the root that requires treatment, which will prevent further infection. A special sealant is used to stop bacteria getting in. You will then have a filling or a crown to cover your tooth, restoring it to its full function.

How will a root canal benefit you?

  • A tooth that might have otherwise been lost will be salvaged.
  • Avoid the need for a dental implant, bridge or dentures.
  • Your dentist here at Moonlight Dental Surgery will approach what can sometimes be a difficult treatment for some patients with patience and compassion.
