When a tooth no longer has a functioning nerve inside, it requires root canal treatment. To do this effectively, treatment using disinfectants to flush out the inside of the root canal complex is required to clean the bacteria away. We use high-powered magnification with bright illumination, hand and motor-driven instruments and a warm, mouldable root filling material to do a great job. Treatment is performed through a carefully made hole in the biting surface of the tooth and takes time to do nicely but it is not a painful experience, just a bit boring! The final seal with a careful filling or crown is so important to maintain a long-lasting outcome.
