If you are wanting to know more about the question ‘what is root canal work?’ then our experienced staff can give you advice, guidance, and support. Here at Pearl Dental Clinic, we have specialist Endodontists who can provide expert care in this area. Some dentists are trained to perform root canal procedures, however, Endodontists are specialists in this area so can often provide more in-depth care, especially in complex cases.
When the tooth becomes infected from the inside, a root canal treatment is needed. This procedure involves drilling into the tooth and removing the infection from the root canals. Following this, the tooth is very carefully cleaned and then disinfected. This is to attempt to prevent any further infection from returning. Once the dentist is happy the tooth will be filled to seal it. Sometimes this will be enough to stabilise the tooth. If not, a crown may be attached to strengthen and protect the tooth further. A crown will only be added once the dentist is satisfied that the infection is eradicated.
