Root Canal Therapy
Every tooth has an internal nerve that provides nutrients, sensation and vitality to the tooth. When the nerve becomes infected due to decay, trauma or a fracture, the treatment options for your tooth become limited. Our aim at Vantage Dental is to preserve and retain as many natural teeth as possible with good oral health.
To treat and save an infected tooth, it is necessary to remove all the decay and access the internal nerve. We then need to clean all debris and bacteria off the affected nerve and seal the root canal system to prevent further bacteria from re-entering the tooth.
Root Canal Treatment is relatively simple and painless and has a high rate of success. It may take two or more appointments depending on the condition of your tooth. In most cases the best restoration post Root Canal Treatment, is a Dental Crown.
