A root canal treatment may save a badly affected tooth from being removed, as well as prevent more severe dental problems.

What is a root canal treatment?

It is an endodontic treatment that focuses on cleaning the soft tissue inside your tooth to save it from harmful bacteria and infections.

If you have experienced a bad injury to your tooth or if it has developed any cavities, it can open a pathway for bacteria to get inside. This can cause the tooth pulp to become infected, resulting in severe toothache and even removal of the tooth. A root canal treatment can save your tooth from the unpleasant consequences caused by the bacteria residing inside your tooth.

Symptoms of a root canal infection

  • Discolouration of the tooth
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold foods and drinks
  • Pain while eating and drinking
  • Discomfort in your tooth, gums or jaw
  • Severe pain in your tooth, gums or jaw
  • Severe headache

What is the procedure?

Typically, all root canal treatments are done with a local anaesthetic to ease your discomfort. The procedure involves the cleansing of the inner part of the affected tooth to eliminate any bacteria residing in your tooth. Afterwards, the affected tooth is secured with the necessary method to restore your tooth (dental fillings, crowns) to prevent new bacteria from reccurring.
