Root Canal Treatments

If a tooth has decayed or experienced trauma resulting in an infected root canal, then root canal treatment will most likely be necessary to save the tooth.

Root canal treatment involves removing the infected nerve, cleaning and filing of the canal, then finally filling and sealing of the root canal to protect it. A composite filling is then placed on top, however a crown is advised for a higher success rate and longevity of the tooth.

This treatment is usually completed over three appointments.
