Root Canal Treatment - Melbourne CBD Dentists
Once upon a time, if you had a tooth with a diseased nerve, you'd probably lose that tooth. Today, with a special dental procedure called root canal therapy, that tooth may be saved.
Endodontic treatment is more commonly known as root canal therapy. Advancements in dental medicine and the development of specially designed instruments mean that a root canal is a relatively simple procedure with little or no discomfort involving one to three visits. Best of all, it can save your tooth and your smile.
Saving your natural tooth which would otherwise require extraction is the main purpose of endodontic therapy. You may require endodontic treatment if the nerve inside your tooth has become infected and inflamed. This can be the result of deep decay, gum disease (periodontitis), a crack or chip in the tooth enamel. Sometimes an accident can cause nerve damage but no visual damage to your tooth can be seen. A thorough examination by one of our dentists will determine the most appropriate course of root canal treatment for you.
