Endodontic treatment is usually less expensive and traumatic than extracting and replacing a damaged tooth. For your peace of mind a full cost for the treatment will be provided beforehand.
What does Root Canal Treatment really mean?
Root canal treatment (also called endodontic treatment) is a procedure that specifically treats the nerve of the tooth and tissues surrounding the root of the tooth.
How can this improve my dental health?
The aim of root canal treatment is to save a tooth that has been damaged by decay, disease or injury. The dead tissue is removed from the canal, medications such as antiseptics and localised antibiotics are used to clean the inside of the tooth, and the canals are filled. Root canal treatment is successful in most cases and if you take good care of the treated tooth, it can last for many years – possibly for the rest of your life. However, your tooth will not be treated unless the treatment is likely to succeed. In some cases, root canal treatment may not be appropriate and extraction may be the best option.
