The aim of root canal treatment is to save a tooth that has been irreversibly damaged due to tooth decay, disease or following tooth trauma.
The procedure includes cleaning, disinfecting, shaping and enlarging the canal(s) and then filling of the canals. This may take several visits to complete due to complexity or may also be completed in one visit.
After the root canal treatment has been completed your dentist will most likely recommend an indirect restoration (ceramic filling) to ensure the root canal treatment is adequately supported to enhance the longevity for your tooth. Signs that you might require root canal include:
A root canal treatment is typically performed in three stages, lasting between 30 to 90 minutes per session. These separate sessions can be spaced out to four weeks or can be completed in one visit (dependent on recommendation from your dentist) between the removal of nerve, fitting the temporary filler and the final sealing. Between visits, temporary fillings and anti-bacterial elements are placed inside the tooth to help settle surrounding tissue and destroy remaining bacteria.
