Root Canal Treatment

A root canal treatment is a dental procedure intended to treat a dead or dying tooth to prevent or remove infection.

The infection is often caused by bacteria that live in the mouth and invade the tooth when:

  • Tooth decay occurs
  • Fillings leak
  • Teeth are damaged by trauma

The bacteria needs to be removed in order to treat the infection in the root canal which can be achieved by extracting the tooth or attempting to save the tooth by removing the bacteria form the root canal system.

Once the bacteria have been removed the root canal is filled and the tooth is sealed with a filling or crown.
