Root canal treatment can be the result of a tooth’s nerve being distressed from having a number of cavities/fillings over one’s lifetime, or from trauma, such as a blow to the face/tooth. Sometimes simply many years of hard chewing ( humans can generate hundreds of pounds per square inch of force on their molars) can cause tooth nerve distress. Root Canal treatment usually requires two visits.
Our goal at Victoria Park Dental is to complete a pain free root canal that allows you to keep your natural tooth instead of having to remove it. Keeping your natural tooth not only prevents you from needing an artificial tooth, it is also the most ideal way of keeping your remaining teeth in line and maintain a straight and natural smile.
