Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy has a history of being a routine filled with dread for many patients and we at Aspendale Gardens Dental Care hope to change that perspective for our patients. The procedure itself is performed when trying to retain a tooth after the nerve has died or is dying and restoring the tooth to a functional state. It is typically carried out as a 3 stage process consisting of mechanically removing the infected portion of the tooth within the canals of the roots, placing an antibacterial paste kill and residual bacteria and finally sealing the canals to prevent re-infection. A permanent restoration in the form of a routine filling or crown is then placed on the tooth to further strengthen the tooth.
