A tooth that has under root canal treatment is no longer alive.
The treated tooth can remain in the mouth as long as the inside of the tooth (the root canal) is cleaned, sterile and sealed.
Molars generally have multiple canals, whilst incisors can have just one canal. Treated teeth often need to be reinforced with a crown to prevent fracture following treatment.
Root canal treatment by our dentists at Smile Ville can alleviate suffering associated with infected or inflamed teeth – often the cause of pain, distress and other health problems. Sometimes due to the complexity of root anatomy or retreatment customers may be referred to a specialist to perform root canal.
