Root canal therapy helps to save a tooth when the nerve is irreversibly damaged.
There’s no need to worry if you need root canal therapy. Our dentists regularly perform this treatment at our practice using modern equipment and the latest techniques. You’ll be surprised at just how gentle the treatment is.
Why do you need root canal therapy?
Root canal therapy removes the infection to make sure you’re pain free and to save the tooth. Saving your tooth means avoiding an extraction and the time and cost of replacing that tooth with an implant, bridge or denture. After all, keeping your natural teeth is the best option for your oral health and function.
After root canal therapy, a crown will be placed over the tooth to protect and strengthen it.
What are the signs that you might need root canal therapy?
If your tooth is infected, you may have the following symptoms:
- A loose tooth
- Tooth sensitivity to hot or cold
- Tooth pressure or pain
- A swollen face
- Sore and swollen gums surrounding the tooth
- Tooth darkening or discoloration
- Pus near the tooth
Please call us if you are experiencing any of these symptoms. The earlier we can have a look at what is causing your pain, the more options we might have to fix it.
