Root canal treatment for Auckland patients
The root canal
The root canal system runs from the crown of the tooth to the end of the roots and contains the dental pulp. If the pulp becomes infected, having a root canal filling is a way of saving the tooth.
Root canal treatment
Before the procedure our dentists may need to take a series of X-rays of the infected tooth. This allows them to assess the infected area better.
During the course of a root canal treatment, the dentist will clean out the infection, fill the roots with an immoveable dental material and will then provide protection for the tooth in the form of a dental crown or filling. A root canal filling is generally performed under local anaesthetics to ensure the patient’s comfort. The entire procedure is often carried out over the course of two or more appointments.
