Root Canal Therapy
THE ROOT PROBLEM
Root canal therapy (also known as endodontic therapy) is the process of treating the infected pulp (nerve of a tooth), by cleaning and eliminating the infection and protecting the tooth from future microbial invasion. Once a tooth has undergone all 3 stages of root canal, it requires a crown to re-strengthen the tooth structure.
Some early symptoms that you may need a root canal include:
Tooth pain and pressure
Hot or cold sensitivity
Discoloured or darkened tooth
The presence of pus at the site of the tooth.
