Root Canal Therapy
A treatment that relieves the pain of a damaged or infected tooth.
If you’ve suffered from an intense or nagging toothache for some time, it could be a sign that your tooth’s pulp (often called the nerve) has become infected or inflamed. This can happen due to gum disease, serious tooth decay, or trauma. In such cases, root canal therapy helps to relieve your pain, avoiding the need for a tooth extraction.
When performed with care, root canal treatment has a high success rate, helping to retain the tooth that would otherwise be removed.
