Endodontic Treatment

In the past, injured or diseased teeth often had to be removed. Today it is possible to save a tooth with endodontic treatment; commonly known as root canal therapy.

Essentially, a tooth consists of a crown and root. Only the crown is visible in the mouth, while the root relates to the bone beneath the gums. The crown contains a hollow centre, known as the pulp chamber, extending down to form the root canal. If the tooth pulp becomes diseased, the pulp dies and may develop an abscess, requiring endodontic dental treatment.

Typical signs and symptoms of endodontic disease include sensitivity to heat or cold, tenderness when chewing or brushing, discoloration of the tooth or pain. If you experience any of these symptoms, a dental assessment with us at The Kingsway Family Dental can determine the best treatment for you.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding with a surgical or invasive procedure, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
