Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is an effective way to save a tooth that has been severely damaged due to decay, disease or injury. Without root canal treatment, a badly diseased tooth will have to be extracted to prevent ongoing infection and pain.

During root canal treatment the tooth has its nerve and blood supply removed and the bulk of its body is replaced with a filling, meaning the tooth becomes weaker. Root canal treatment is successful in most cases. If great care is taken, it may last for many years and possibly the rest of your life. Your tooth will not be treated unless the treatment is likely to succeed.
