Root Canal Therapy
We believe it's far better to save and treat a tooth where possible. Root canal therapy treatment aids in saving an injured or diseased tooth that may otherwise require removal.
Root canal therapy is also commonly known as 'Endodontics' - the treatment of disease or infection found inside the tooth. It is used to salvage seriously infected teeth, which would otherwise require extraction.
Some symptoms which may indicate the need for root canal therapy include:
- Serious levels of tooth decay or an injury that causes an abscess or infection in the bone
- The development of sensitivity when hot and cold food or drinks are consumed
- Spontaneous throbbing or pain when biting
If you’re experiencing any of the above issues, we strongly recommend you schedule a appointment with our dental team today. If your tooth does require an extraction, we may instead be able to treat it using root canal therapy and save your valuable tooth.
