Root Canal Treatment (RCT)

Root canal treatment (also known as endodontic treatment) is a series of procedure to save your tooth that has been damaged by decay, infection (abscess) or injury which otherwise would require an extraction. Our dentists will use a specialized drill along with dental drill pieces called files to reach into the canal of your tooth. From here, the dentist will remove the inflamed or infected pulp; refill the canal with special fillings and the pulp chamber is sealed to prevent any bacteria from re-entering the canal.

Root canal treatment is preferred over extraction because real teeth will always function better than any artificial teeth can. They are much stronger and more efficient at biting and chewing than artificial teeth. Even once root canal treatment has been carried out, the tooth will still survive because the surrounding tissue will nourish this tooth.

If you would like anymore information about root canal treatment or just want to talk to a dentist about this procedure, please call us today or reserve your appointment online.
