While various diseases and injuries can cause severe damage to teeth, they can be saved rather than removed when the right treatment is used. At Integrated Dental Health, we can provide root canal therapy for patients of all ages. Our highly experienced dentists can perform a root canal to preserve your natural tooth, which is often far more preferable than an artificial replacement.
Dental root canal therapy involves removing the root and pulp of a tooth when it becomes damaged or infected. Successful treatment not only restores the natural aesthetics of your affected tooth, but also eliminates the need for prosthetics. With sufficient care, your tooth could even last the rest of your life without further problems.
Our root canal dentist will first conduct an x-ray of your affected tooth to determine the number of appointments that will be necessary. Subsequently, your tooth will be numbed with a local anaesthetic and a rubber dam will be placed around the tooth to keep it clean and isolated. The pulp will then be removed and disinfecting solutions will be applied to clean the area. Finally, a root canal filling will be used to seal the canal.
At Integrated Dental Health, we pride ourselves on offering root canal therapy performed by experienced dental professionals. Contact our root canal dentist today for additional information and further assistance.
