General Dentistry » Root Canal Treatment
At Mt Barker Dentists root canal treatment is PAIN FREE, so there is absolutely nothing to be afraid of! Root canal therapy is needed when decay has spread to the tooth nerve (pulp chamber), or if a crack has developed down into the root of the tooth.
Root canal therapy is carried out over a number of visits, depending on the reason for treatment.
Root canal treatment is a very delicate process and must be completed to ensure the tooth doesn’t become inflamed (re-inflamed) or infected (reinfected). Nothing is ever as good as the original teeth you were born with, so if your tooth can be saved by root canal therapy, it’s a great investment in yourself.
