What is Root Canal treatment?

For teeth with large fillings, deep decay or those that are traumatised the nerve can die which in turn can lead to a toothache or even an abscess.

In such instances, as an alternative to removing the tooth we will recommend a root filling or root canal therapy as it is also known. This involves cleaning out the inside root space of the tooth and filling it with a rubber like material called gutta percha.

The procedure can be technically demanding and take one or two long appointments, but the end result of saving a tooth is preferable to a gap.

Due to the inherent weakening of a root filled tooth we often recommend that such teeth are subsequently crowned in order to help protect the remaining tooth structure.

Claire Jordan does all our root canal therapy using a state of the art Zeiss microscope which ensures optimal quality and a better long term prognosis.
