Root Canal Treatments 

Root Canal Treatments


If you’ve had an injury or trauma to your tooth, you may need root canal therapy. Equally, bacteria in your mouth can invade a tooth, causing decay, infections or abscesses.

Symptoms That May Indicate You Need a Root Canal

  • Severe toothache
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold
  • An abscess on the gums
  • Swelling or tenderness

The Procedure

Root canal treatment or endodontics is a dental procedure to treat infections at the centre of the tooth. To save your tooth, all living tissue inside the tooth is removed and filled with medicated dental material and sealed with either a filling or crown to prevent the recurrence of the infection. It is normal for your tooth to be sensitive following treatment. The sensitivity will subside once the inflammation decreases and the tooth heals. Root canals usually require one or more appointments.
