Root Canal Treatment

If you have a cracked tooth, a broken crown, severe tooth decay or an infection inside one of your teeth, your dentist may suggest root canal treatment to save your tooth having to be taken out.

Bacteria inside a damaged tooth can cause pain and swelling and if the pulp inside the tooth becomes infected, this can spread to the pulp inside the root canal.

During root canal treatment, your dentist will clean and fill inside the tooth to prevent further damage or infection.
