Root Canal Treatment
Patients typically need a root canal when there is inflammation or infection in the root(s) of a tooth. With modern technology and techniques, a root canal treatment is a relatively straightforward, quick and comfortable procedure.
Root canals are necessary when infection has built up inside the tooth. This could usually be caused by tooth decay, trauma or fracture. The procedure involves removing the inflamed or infected pulp, carefully cleaning and shaping the inside of the canal, and creating a channel inside the root. After removing the infection, the tooth is sealed with a protective and reliable fillings, crowns or inlays as required.

Our specialists routinely use cutting edge equipment like the microscope, apex locators and rotary endodontics to enhance the treatment with far superior and predictable results.
