When is Root Canal Treatment Necessary?
We will always try our best to save your teeth whenever we can.
This consultation appointment will highlight all your various options on finding a solution to your situation. In most cases, you will already be advised of your situation from your dentist who will then refer you for an Endodontic (Root Canal) Consultation.
To carry out root canal treatment painlessly and properly, takes time, skill and meticulous attention to detail.
Root canal treatment (RCT) is a procedure which is necessary to save a badly broken or painful tooth. The only alternative often is extraction which can have many disadvantages.
You might need one if:
- If there is an infection within the tooth. An untreated infection may result in pain, swelling or even abscess formation.
- Heavily filled or badly broken down teeth that may give problems in the future.
- As part of a more complex treatment to support a crown or denture. Note: We will only recommend this procedure if adequate tooth structure remains above the gum level.
