Root Canals

Teeth are "tough" on the outside, but inside they have a soft core made up of nerve tissue and blood vessels. Serious infection of the nerve tissue caused by tooth decay or trauma to the tooth, are the most common causes of a tooth needing root canal treatment. A root canal simply involves the removal of the injured nerve tissue from the centre of the tooth to allow it to remain pain free in your mouth.

Root canal treatment saves a tooth that would otherwise be lost. After root canal treatment, a filling and crown is placed over the tooth to restore it to its natural shape and appearance, protecting it from fracture.
