Root canal treatment has gained a bad reputation over the years, undeservingly so. It is shrouded in mystery and many believe it can only be painful. We believe this is simply down to a lack of understanding. One thing is clear – root canal is not painful and a very predictable science.
At the practice, we perform all root canal treatment under a rubber dam, which provides protection for your airway and maintains an aseptic field. We use rotary motors and instruments, and fill canals with warm filling, making sure we have a 3D seal. This helps prevent further infection by improving long-term prognosis.
Below are some simple examples of root canal treatment – we like you to have a true representation of modern day dentistry, not just fancy veneers and orthodontics!
