Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment has gained a notorious reputation over the years. Here at The Edge Dental, we want to disprove this myth by providing pain free and easy root canal treatments for our patients. Root canal treatment should not hurt and does not feel any different to having a filling.
Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic treatment is used to treat an infection at the centre of the tooth known as the root canal system. An infection may be a result of tooth decay, a leaking filling or trauma to a tooth and if not treated properly, can lead to a dental abscess.
Root canal treatment is carried out over two or more visits, the first visit usually to get you out of pain, and the second to disinfect and fill the root canal system. You will need a filling or crown on the tooth to seal the root canal treatment.
