Root Canal

THE dentist Salisbury - Root Canal Header

Root canal treatment is a treatment used to save a badly damaged or unhealthy tooth.  If the soft tissue at the centre of the tooth becomes infected, diseased or injured, root canal treatment can be undertaken.  This will remove bacteria from the root canal and seal the tooth with a filling or a crown.

We appreciate the words “root canal” often instils fear in our patients.  However, with advanced modern technology, the treatment should no longer be feared.  In reality root canal is very similar to having a filling and is conducted under a local anaesthetic.  With the tooth and surround gum numbed you shouldn’t feel any pain during the procedure.
