Root Canal Treatment

When decay progresses to the pulp of the tooth (where the nerve and blood vessels reside in the centre of the tooth), an abscess will develop which may or may not be associated with strong pain. If left untreated, the abscess will continue to spread beyond the roots of the teeth, into the surrounding bone.

The root canal treatment removes the infected pulp and replaces it with a permanent restoration within the root canals and a filling or crown is placed on top of this. The tooth can then function normally.
