Root treatment

Root treatment, or endodontics, can save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected.
The nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed.
What are the signs that a root canal is needed? Sometimes there are no symptoms but there may be:

  1. severe pain on chewing or even touching the tooth
  2. prolonged sensitivity/pain to heat or cold temperatures (after the hot or cold has been removed
  3. darkening of the tooth
  4. swelling and tenderness in the gums around the tooth
  5. a persistent or recurring gum boil

How successful is root treatment?

Root canal treatment can have more than a 95% success rate. Many root treated teeth can last a lifetime.
