Here at the Town House Dental Practice, we are pleased to offer root canal treatment.
Root canal treatment involves the sterilisation of an infected tooth and can often be necessary to save a tooth that has severe damage or decay. To save a severely damaged tooth, we can clean out the small space in the centre of the tooth occupied by the nerve – the root canal – disinfect the space and then seal it.
WHAT CAUSES ROOT CANAL INFECTIONS?
The root canal – or dental pulp – at the centre of a tooth can become infected by bacteria in several different ways:
– tooth decay
– a cracked or failing filling
– damage to the tooth structure caused by a trauma, such as a fall or knock
