If you don’t want a tooth extraction, there is another alternative to recover a badly decayed tooth: a root canal treatment. While it may sound scary, a root canal is a common procedure in restorative dentistry. Our dentists will do everything they can to make sure you’re comfortable before, during, and after your procedure. Why not visit us in our warm and inviting clinic in Ivanhoe, where our dental team will evaluate your condition and recommend the most suitable procedure?
Every tooth has its very own nerve and blood supply commonly referred to as ‘pulp.’
When these nerves get irritated and become very painful, it tells us that the pulp has become infected and/or is inflamed. Root Canal Treatment (RCT) will need to be performed to relieve the pain and save the tooth. This is done by removing all of the pulp inside the tooth.
We believe preserving as many and as much of your natural teeth is very important, which is why we recommend RCT. With successful RCT, your tooth is able to be saved and remain in your mouth for many years to come.
