The Highclere Dental Centre offer root canal treatment in order to avoid tooth loss if the nerve of a tooth becomes infected. An infection occurs most commonly as a result of tooth decay, injury, or a leak/break in an existing filling.
The key to root canal treatment is the removal of the harmful bacteria present in the root canal system that has caused infection and subsequent damage to the tooth. Once the bacteria has been cleared out, the affected tooth is protected and sealed by using a crown or filling.
Once treatment has been completed, great care should be taken to maintain the health of your teeth and gums as part of your daily lifestyle.
