Root Canal Therapy

Procedures / Restorative

There are many reasons why having root canal therapy is necessary; deep decay, trauma or an abscess are common though. In its simplest terms, root canal therapy involves removing the infected contents of the root and making an airtight/watertight seal to prevent bacteria from re-entering.

Most of the time, the endodontically treated tooth requires a crown to strengthen the remaining tooth structure. However, when the tooth is restored, the tooth can last a lifetime.
