Root Treatment

Root canal treatment will save your tooth preventing the need for an extraction.

Root canal treatment explained

Root canal also called endodontic treatment is required when the nerve in a tooth is inflamed or infected. This infection and inflammation causes pain and sometimes swelling. This can be a a result of deep decay, large and deep fillings or as a result of an injury to the tooth.

What to expect

  • Endodontic treatment is generally carried out over 2 appointments.
    • Local anesthetic ensures comfortable treatment.
    • The inside of the root is carefully cleaned and shaped.
    • The canals are then filled and sealed.
  • A crown may be required after this treatment.

Complex treatment may be referred to Dr John Lordan who has provided excellent care to man of our patients over the years.
