Root Canal Therapy (Endodontics)

A damaged tooth can ultimately lead to infection of the pulp and the nerve chamber, which can cause extraordinary levels of pain and lead to an abscess in the area surrounding the tooth. We perform root canal therapy to treat pulp that has become infected in a person’s tooth. This procedure is crucial to eliminating the infection and protecting the tooth from becoming infected again in the future. During this procedure, the dentist will remove the nerve and pulp from inside the tooth. Local anaesthesia is used prior to the procedure so no pain is felt during the process.

What are the benefits of root canal therapy?

Some of the benefits of this procedure include:
  • Elimination of infection
  • Elimination of pain and sensitivity
  • Reduced overall health risks associated with tooth infection
  • Restoration of health, appearance, and function of the affected tooth
  • Reduced risk that the tooth will need to be extracted
  • Shortened overall health risks associated with tooth infection
