Root Canal Treatment aims to save a tooth which has been badly damaged by decay, disease or injury.
Endodontics (often referred to as Root Canal Therapy) is the area of dentistry dealing with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders of the dental pulp. When the nerve of the tooth becomes diseased or infected, it is essential to remove the nerve to save the tooth.
Previously, if a tooth became infected it would have simply been removed. At Definitive Dental we take every possible step to save all teeth and keep your natural smile for life.
After Root Canal Treatment is performed, the affected tooth will often require a Crown to strengthen and seal the tooth.
