Endodontic Therapy

Endodontic therapy, or root canal therapy,  becomes necessary when you have tooth decay or an injury which causes your tooth’s pulp - the soft tissue - to become infected. This can spread through the root canal system, causing an uncomfortable abscess to develop. Root canal therapy treats this infection, helping you to maintain your natural tooth instead of having it removed.

If you need root canal therapy, you will be given a local anesthetic to prevent you from feeling anything during the procedure.

Then, your dentist will clean out your root canal system, removing the pulp and the infection. This canal system is filled and fitted with a temporary crown until all the infection has gone.

It’s important to visit the dentist if you have signs of an infected tooth; dealing with problems when they arise prevents bigger problems down the line.
