Root canal treatment is a dental procedure where a dentist replaces a tooth’s damaged or infected pulp with a filling in order to restore and save the tooth. Depending on the circumstance, it may be completed over a series of visits to your dentist. A root canal is a common restorative dental treatment with a very high success rate provided that you continue to maintain good oral hygiene and routine check-ups at the dentist afterward.
Root canal therapy treats damaged dental pulp, the centre (root) of the tooth comprised of connective tissue, nerves, blood vessels, and cells. Issues like severe tooth decay and infections that affect the tooth enamel (the outer layer) can lead to damaged or diseased dental pulp.
Left untreated, the damaged tooth pulp can cause immense pain, swelling, eventual tooth loss and if infected, the bacteria can spread to the jaw bone and other parts of the body.
You may need a root canal treatment if you are experiencing the following symptoms associated with damaged/diseased tooth pulp:

Severe tooth decay and damaged dental pulp need to be professionally treated as soon as possible in order to avoid further pain and complications. In severe cases, root canal treatments are urgent. If you are in severe pain, you can be assured that we will treat your matter with urgency.
The procedure typically takes 1-2 hours, however, this varies by individual cases. Recent advancements in dental technologies allow some root canal treatments to be completed in a single visit but for some patients with more difficult cases, it may involve multiple sessions.
Today, getting root canal treatment is often no more uncomfortable than having a filling. In fact, root canal treatment doesn’t cause pain but actually relieves it. Advances have made the treatment a virtually pain-free experience, many times accomplished in a single visit.
