Nothing quite strikes fear into the heart of dental patients like the words ‘root canal treatment’. When the blood or nerve supply of a tooth (often known as the ‘pulp’) becomes damaged through injury, infected or decayed, it can cause the nerve of the tooth to die. Year ago this would have meant a certain need to remove the tooth before the whole area became infected. However, thanks to root canal treatment it is now possible to save teeth that are at risk from damaged pulp. With Rotary Endodontics, our dentists are able to perform this task using specific electrical handpieces. This makes the process much easier both for you and your dentist.
