Root Canal Therapy – Endodontic treatment
If you have a severe toothache, it is possible to save your tooth. Root canal treatment is a procedure designed to relieve your pain and save your tooth.
Root canal treatment is a dental procedure that replaces a tooth’s damaged or infected pulp with a filling. The pulp consists mainly of blood vessels, tissue and some nerve fibres within the hollow centre of the tooth. The procedure is also known as endodontic treatment.
Success rates for endodontic treatment are generally good. About 90-95% of patients who have root canal treatment can expect a functional tooth after the treatment.
The treated tooth should last as long as your other teeth providing you maintain good oral hygiene and generally look after your teeth.
*Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
