Root Canal Therapy..

Root Canal may be recommended due to trauma or when decay reaches the nerve of the tooth

The process involves removing the nerve and all bacteria and inflamed tissues from the canal space to the end of the root.

The canal space is filled with an inner material called ‘Gutta-Purcha’ that fills and seals the canal space.

A core is then bonded to replace lost tooth structure so that a crown may be retained.

The tooth is now ready to receive a crown restoration
