While the symptoms prompting the need for root canal treatment can be excruciating to endure, the ultimate aim of root canal treatment is to save a tooth that has been corrosively damaged, due to ongoing decay, injury or dental disease.
Special instruments, called files, are firstly used to remove inflamed or infected nerve tissue. We then apply anti-bacterial or anti-inflammatory medications to the inside of the affected tooth, which helps to stop inflammation and infection.
Our highly skilled dentists at Dentists@Labrador employ the latest training techniques and technology in Endodontic dentistry. The use of rotary nickel-titanium generally ensures the most effective and pain-free procedure in root canal treatment.
Follow-up crown treatments are usually also required and these are best performed soon after the initial root canal surgery.
Signs that you may require root canal treatment include the incidence of the following symptoms:
A thorough evaluation with our specifically trained dentists will assess whether root canal treatment is right for you.
Once you decide to go ahead with the root canal treatment, we streamline this service, including the need for dental crowns to keep the tooth in place, to make your treatment as effective, straightforward and long-lasting as possible.
