Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal Treatment is the removal of the blood and nerve supply, or ‘pulp’ of a tooth. The removal is necessary if the pulp becomes infected as a result of injury or decay.

If root canal treatment is not done, the infection will spread and the tooth may need to be taken out.

The procedure is carried out in the surgery under local anaesthetic, and typically requires one or two appointments.
