When resolving root canal issues, we pinpoint the area of pain during the initial examination period. This typically includes taking an X-Ray of your teeth so we can analyse the problem area below the gum line. It’s important to address because if left untreated your condition can worsen.
After the preliminary analysis, we decide if we can preserve your original natural tooth instead of extracting it, and replacing it with a prosthetic one. If your condition warrants root canal therapy and there is dead or inflamed pulp that is trapped in the centre of the tooth the pulp is removed. Once removed, it’s time to get it filled and sealed. We clean and sterilise the affected area. Then, we seal the tooth with a special filling material that prevents future infections and maintains oral health.
