Endodontics / Root Canal Treatment

What is involved in a root treatment?

A root canal treatment is used to repair and retain a tooth that has become badly decayed or infected. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. Often a crown is then needed to further seal and protect the treated tooth. Without treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected and abscesses may form.

How long are the appointments?

The length of treatment will depend on the tooth but typically two appointments are required.
