Root Canal Treatment
With years of experience and a gentle approach to dental care, root canal treatment performed by Dr Alex Down should not cause any more discomfort than that of a regular filling.
Root canal treatment (also known as endodontic therapy) is required when the tissue or pulp of the tooth becomes infected or damaged. Traditionally when this occurred the tooth would simply have to be extracted, but with root canal therapy your natural tooth can be saved.
During root canal therapy the canals of the infected tooth are gently accessed and the infected tissue is thoroughly removed. Your tooth may then be reinforced with a crown to support the longevity of your natural tooth.
