Root Canal Therapy

This procedure is normally undertaken to prevent formation of an abscess or in some cases the return of an abscess.

It involves removing part of your tooth to access the nerve which is the source of pain or infection. This is all then cleaned and shaped by the dentist and a filling put down the roots of the tooth into the space left. The tooth then has a filling on top to seal it all up.
