Tooth Infection & Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment (RCT) is a simple dental procedure used to treat tooth infection without losing your natural tooth. It is needed when the blood or nerve supply of the tooth is infected through decay, fracture, trauma or failure to treat a broken filling.
The treatment of the infected tooth involves the removal of the infected nerve tissue, cleaning and sterilisation, followed by sealing of the decontaminated root canal to protect it against future microbial invasion. NMD then recommends restoring a root-filled tooth with a crown to make it stronger.
Root canal therapy usually requires multiple appointments, depending on the severity of the tooth infection symptoms. It is performed under local anaesthetic, making root canal pain a thing of the past.
