Root Canal Treatment

A very painful tooth may be the sign that the tooth pulp, or nerve has become exposed, either due to tooth decay or a dental injury such as a fractured tooth. When the tooth pulp is exposed to your mouths’ natural bacteria it can become infected. Root canal treatment can assist. All surgery carries risks so it is important to be informed .We will discuss the treatment fully at your visit and provide you with details of this procedure.
Root canal treatment begins with the removal of the infected pulp, cleaning and disinfecting the root canal system and filling it to prevent further infection.

Dr Watson or Dr Tadros may then suggest to place a dental crown over the tooth to secure the treatment and restore a natural appearance.
