Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is the 2-3 visit process of removing the dead or damaged pulp of the tooth and replacing it with a special filling. The root canal is the tiny tube that extends from inside the tooth right to the tip of the tooth root.

Root canal therapy involves placing a hole in the centre of the tooth crown, accessing then removing the damaged or dead pulp, cleaning the root canal, placing a temporary crown till the second visit, managing risk of infection. Second visit entails removing temporary crown/filling, cleaning root canal once again, filling the root canal with special substance, final step is capping the tooth with a new crown to seal and protect the root canal and restore the cosmetic appearance of the tooth.
