Endodontic treatment (Root Canal Therapy)
In the past, if your tooth became diseased or suffered a nerve injury, in most cases you would probably lose the tooth. Thanks to Root Canal Therapy (RCT), today St George Dental can save your tooth.
Each of your teeth contains pulp, tissue which provides nutrients and nerves to the tooth. If this pulp tissue is injured or becomes diseased it can die, potentially causing infection and tooth loss. RCT can help prevent these outcomes.
Your procedure begins as your tooth’s root canal is thoroughly cleansed of all bacteria and disinfected. The root canal is then sealed off to protect it, before Dr Yanes places a crown over the tooth to strengthen it and restore its natural appearance.
After having RCT your restored tooth can last you a lifetime, so long as you continue to care for your teeth and gums and attend regular checkups with St George Dental.
