root canal THERAPY

A root canal is required when decay or infection has affected the inside of the tooth. The nerves inside the tooth become infected and often require antibiotic treatment. Unfortunately, this is a temporary solution as the source of the infection has not been treated.

Once the antibiotic has cleared up the initial infection, root canal therapy is often required to save the tooth. This involves replacing the nerve inside the tooth with a medicated material that is intended to prevent further infection. Without the nerve the tooth will no longer experience sensitivity, however it is more brittle so will require a crown once it settles down.
