Root Canal Therapy

 

There has always been a lot of talk about the dreaded root canal! They are basically required when the nerve inside a tooth gets infected, inflamed or breaks down.  They can prevent the need for extractions, and prolong the life of your tooth for many years.

Generally they require 2-4 appointments, where the infected area inside the tooth is located, measured, cleaned out and finally filled.

At Gilbert St Dental, we realize these are two words that can evoke fear, and we will make sure the process is fully explained, and all measures taken to reduce the pain these infected nerves can cause.

Often after a root canal, it is recommended to place a crown over the tooth, in order to protect the work that has just been done.
