Root Canal Treatment

Thank you for your high quality care and professionalism Dr Tran.

Root canal treatment (also called ‘endodontics') is needed when the blood or nerve supply of the tooth (called the ‘pulp') is infected through decay or injury.  This does not necessarily result in pain or swelling in the initial stages and often goes unnoticed until symptoms.  

 

The aim of the treatment is to remove all the infection from the root canal. The root is then cleaned and filled to prevent any further infection. The treatment is a skilled and time-consuming procedure so most courses of treatment will involve two or more visits to your dentist.

The procedure does not hurt, usually, a local anaesthetic is used and it should feel no different to having an ordinary filling done.

If you wish to know more, please speak to a team member at the Kelvedon Dental Centre,  who will more than happy to give you advice and assistance.
