Root Canal Treatment

Endodontic (Root Treatment)


Root Canal Treatment (RCT) is an alternative to tooth extraction in order to save the tooth. RCT is the treatment of the infected or inflamed pulp (nerves) of the inside of the tooth. RCT aims to retain the natural tooth.

Infection or inflammation of the pulp can be caused by

  • Decay progressing into the pulp
  • Existing deep filling
  • Trauma
  • Cracks
  • Excessive wear on the tooth
  • Gum disease

Root canal treatment involves

  • Disinfection, shaping, filling and sealing of the inside tooth in order to help resolve the inflammation and infection
  • Tooth sealing to prevent bacteria ingression once the tooth has been cleaned
  • Follow up visits to your dentist to ensure the tooth is protected and restored to its normal function
