I would like to

When the central nerve of a tooth becomes inflamed or infected, root canal treatment may be required.

What is root canal treatment?

A root canal is a dental treatment where your dentist removes an infected nerve and dental pulp from within a tooth.

A root canal is performed under local anaesthetic. Some removal of the central part of the tooth may be required to access the nerve. When the nerve is removed, the root canals of the tooth are cleaned out and disinfected.

Depending on the health of the tooth, a filling or dental crown will be used to restore strength and function to the tooth.

Do I need root canal treatment?

If you are experiencing tooth pain, sensitivity, swelling or you notice darkening of a tooth, it may be due to an inflamed or infected nerve.

The nerve can become infected if it is exposed as a result of deep tooth decay, cracking or chipping, loose crowns, dislodged fillings or other previous dental procedures.

An inflamed or infected root nerve can cause significant discomfort if it remains untreated and may even lead to an abscess.
