Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal Treatment

Root canal therapy is a common dental procedure that can be used to both repair and save a tooth that is decayed or infected. Sometimes our tooth’s pulp or nerve tissue can become damaged, irritated, inflamed or infected due to decay. However, this can also occur as a result of trauma (e.g. a fall).

Left alone without treatment, the tooth may abscess, spread infection, and/or reach a state at which point extraction may be the only viable option left. Not to mention you’ll be in a lot of pain.

Prospect Family Dental are experts in providing this treatment, and always ensure that we provide individualised treatment that is as pain-free as possible.

Benefits of Root Canal Treatment

Modern root canal therapy is largely painless and similar to receiving a filling. In just one, or sometimes two, appointments your root canal can be completed, leaving you pain-free and with your own natural tooth.

Saving your natural tooth with root canal therapy has many advantages including:

  • Improved ability to chew
  • Retain normal biting force
  • Preserve your tooth’s natural appearance
  • Protects other teeth from excessive wear or strain
