What is Root Canal Treatment?
Root canal treatment, which is also known as endodontics, is a serious dental procedure that involves removing an infected or damaged nerve in an effort to keep the tooth intact. Rather than tooth extraction, root canal treatment is designed to protect your natural teeth and prevent associated problems related to nerve damage or infection. Here at Tarneit Dental Care, our root canal procedures act as a form of immediate pain relief and long-term prevention.
When is Root Canal Treatment Needed?
Damaged nerves can occur as the result of extensive tooth decay, trauma, bruxism, or gum disease. A root canal treatment is typically recommended when the damaged tooth is seriously inflamed or infected, with endodontics also applied as a form or re-treatment if the canals have become reinfected. While most root canal work can be performed as part of a regular dental practice, additional surgical treatment is sometimes required. Upon completion, the tooth involved may become more brittle and a dental crown or large filling may be needed.
