Root Canal Therapy
Root Canal Therapy is needed when a an abcess is formed under a decayed tooth which can be quite painful.
Root canal problems care caused when there is dead or dying nerve tissue inside your tooth. This can cause the area to swell and can be quite painful when biting or chewing. Root Canal Therapy is the process where we remove the dead nerve, dress the canal with an antibiotic dressing and fill the canal with filling material.
The procedure usually takes about 90 minutes and is usually completed within two sessions to allow for the anti-microbiotic dressing to work.
Following Root Canal Therapy the crown part of the tooth will need to be protected by placing a crown so that to prevent it from fracturing during chewing.
