Dental Crown and Bridges

Root canal treatment (also known as endodontic treatment) is necessary when the inside of the tooth and surrounding area becomes infected as a result of wear, decay or injury.
Symptoms of infection include:

Shine Dental Clinic Sensitivity to hot or cold food or drinks

Shine Dental Clinic Pain when biting or chewing

Shine Dental Clinic Swelling of the gum near the affected tooth

Shine Dental Clinic Oozing from the affected tooth

Shine Dental Clinic Facial swelling

The aim of root canal treatment is to save the tooth and prevent it from future infection. If ignored, the infection could spread and the tooth may need to be extracted.
During treatment your Smiles dentist will:

Shine Dental Clinic Remove infected or damaged tissue inside the tooth

Shine Dental Clinic Clean and disinfect the area

Shine Dental Clinic Fill and seal the space using advanced materials

Depending on the strength of the remaining structure post treatment, the tooth may require either a filling or a crown.
