Root Canal Process

The main purpose of root canal therapy is to relieve pain caused by an infected nerve which could lead to an abscess and loss of the tooth. Such a damaged tooth can be restored to full function and appearance with root canal treatment.
Root canal therapy is perceived as an uncomfortable and painful procedure. With the administration of local anaesthetic, treatment can be completed with minimal discomfort. Advancements in dental technology have also made root canal treatment outcomes more predictable and comfortable for patients. The Knox Terrace Dental team use special techniques to help give your tooth the greatest chance of a successful result.
On completion of the root filling your dentist will restore the tooth with a restoration designed to protect it from further damage. In most cases this is best done with a crown but other options can be suitable.
