This procedure aims to eliminate the infection within the tooth roots that normally lead to throbbing aches and sometimes abscesses and swellings. During this procedure the inside of the tooth is opened up, bacteria causing the infection are cleaned out and the root canal is disinfected and filled. When properly done they carry a high success rate.

Root filled teeth are generally structurally weaker and more brittle. For back teeth, crowning to protect these teeth is highly recommended.

Our dentists will always do their best to make this procedure painless, as it will be carried out under local anaesthetic.
