Root canal treatment


Root canal treatment (also called endodontics) is needed when the blood or nerve supply to a tooth is infected through decay or injury. You may feel pain- but not always, and in some cases the tooth may darken in colour due to the nerve damage. The infection will spread through the root canal system of the tooth and lead to an abscess with symptoms like swelling, dull ache, severe pain, sensitivity to hot and tenderness. The treatment involves removal of the infection by cleaning and filling the root canal to prevent any further infection or pain. Root canal treatment is a skilled and time consuming procedure. Most courses of treatment will involve two or more visits to your dentist.
