What is Endodontic Therapy?

Endodontics, often referred to as Root Canal Treatment, is the treatment of the soft tissue inside the root of the canal known as dental pulp to save a natural tooth which would otherwise be extracted.

When would I need Endodontic treatment?

Endodontic therapy is the best solution for inflamed or infected pulp which if left untreated can lead to an abscess and ultimately tooth loss.

Inflammation or infection is usually caused by:

  • Deep decay
  • Repeated dental procedures on the tooth
  • A crack or chip in the tooth
  • Dental trauma

Are all teeth suitable for Endodontic treatment?

Most teeth are treatable. Occasionally, a tooth can't be saved because the root canals are not accessible, the root is severely fractured, the tooth doesn't have adequate bone support, or the tooth cannot be restored. The dentist will discuss your options during your consultation so you can make an informed decision about your treatment.

How long will a treated tooth last?

Most endodontically treated teeth last as long as other natural teeth.
