Root Canal Treatment
A Root Canal Treatment is generally required when the cavity has been so deep that it has reached or damaged the nerve of the tooth. It is usually recommended by dentists to save the tooth. If left untreated, the infection can progress to the stage where you will need to remove it.
Root Canal Treatment is completed through three stages.
After all stages have been completed, a root canal treated tooth will have higher risks of fracture as they are brittle. Therefore it is recommended to have a Crown fitted soon after the treatment.
Why do I need a Crown after Root Canal Treatment?
Are you experiencing any of the following symptoms?
Occasionally these symptoms may come and go, however if you do not treat the root of the problem, severe pain and abscesses can occur. If an abscess is left untreated, the spread of infection can damage the bone surrounding the root causing problems for the tooth itself and may also potentially harm neighbouring teeth.
