Root canal therapy (also known as endodontic therapy) is the process of treating the infected, diseased or damaged pulp (nerve) of a tooth by cleaning and eliminating the infection and protecting the tooth from future microbial invasion. This treatment relieves patients from unpleasant tooth pain, and increases the chances of saving your teeth so that you don’t lose them. Retaining natural teeth is considered the best solution for your oral health and function, and saves you from needing costly and time consuming teeth replacement treatments. Once a tooth has undergone root canal therapy, it will require a crown to strengthen the tooth structure and protect it from further erosion.
At The Grove Dental Rouse Hill we are committed to ensuring that our patients in need of a root canal do not find it a daunting or fearful experience. We strive to create a safe and comfortable environment and use the latest advanced technology – a majority of our patients actually fall asleep during their root canal treatment!
