When a tooth has died, usually as a result of decay or trauma,
it can become infected and an abscess may develop. The aim
of root canal treatment is to clear up the infection by thoroughly
cleaning out the canal and then to seal it so that we can
save the tooth. It is usually necessary to provide crowns
on the teeth that have had this treatment since they become
brittle and may discolour. We employ the latest nickel titanium
instruments to clean the tooth effectively with minimal discomfort.
