Root Canal Treatment


Root Canal treatment (Endodontics) is required when the blood or nerve supply to the tooth (Pulp) is infected through decay or injury.  The only alternative to Root Canal Treatment is to have the tooth removed from the mouth, as we prefer to  save your own natural teeth whenever possible.

RCT Procedure

– The tooth is examined and an Xray is taken.
– An opening is made in the crown of the tooth, and small instruments are used to clean the pulp from the pulp chamber and root canals.
– The root canals are filled and a temporary filling is placed on the tooth.
– A short time later a dental crown or another restoration will be placed on the tooth to protect and restore it to full function.
