Root canal (or endodontic treatment) is a process whereby inflamed or dead pulp (tooth nerve tissue) is removed from the inside of the tooth, enabling a tooth that was causing pain to be retained*.
Dental pulp is the soft tissue in the canal that runs through the centre of a tooth. After removing the pulp, the root canals are cleaned, disinfected and shaped into a form that can be completely sealed with a filling material to prevent further infection.
Example of root canal treatment stages at our Moranbah and Marian practices.
We can treat root canal in our Moranbah and Marian Practices to the highest standard and degree of care.
The treatment can take several appointments, depending on how complex the tooth is, and how long the infection takes to clear.
Subsequently, a crown or complex restoration to restore or protect the tooth may be recommended by your dentist at DentalCareXtra.
