When the tooth surface gets damaged or decayed, the inner structure of nerves and tissues is vulnerable to infection. An affected core can cause inflammation in the area, tooth discolouration, pain or tenderness while biting, or prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold. Root canal treatment can treat the centre of the tooth.
A root canal treatment aims to restore your dental function as well as protect your tooth by preventing the spread of decay.
Our team at Superior Smiles can administer a local anaesthetic and numb the area for the root canal treatment, then remove the decay, clean the infected chamber and assess the health of the remaining tooth. The root canal is sterilised and sealed with a filling. In some cases, a dental crown may be fitted for additional protection and strength.
