Root Canal Treatment

When a tooth has been exposed to a lot of trauma, dental disease or decay, the nerve may become irreversibly damaged. When this happens, the affected tooth needs to have root canal treatment to bring it back to health. Although it might sound daunting, root canal is a standard and common procedure that will not only free you of pain, it will also resolve any infections in your teeth and vitally, it will help to save teeth that would otherwise have to be removed.
Symptoms that you may require root canal treatment include:
• Dull ache or severe pain
• Abscess (area where pus collects)
• Prolonged sensitive tooth (especially to hot or cold)
• Tenderness when biting or eating
• Swelling of the face
• Severe bad taste in your mouth
• Tooth darkens in colour
