Root Canal Treatments

A root canal procedure is performed in order to reduce the pain caused by an infected or abscessed tooth. This procedure consists of removing the infected pulp, disinfecting the root canal space and then filling this space hermetically.

A patient will need a root canal treatment when a cavity is left untreated for a long time. This allows the bacteria to travel to the pulp space and invade it.


A cracked tooth or a traumatic tooth can also require the patient to undergo a root canal therapy.

  1. Tooth pain that does not go away

  2. Swollen gums or pimple on the gums

  3. Tooth discolouration

  4. Swollen Jaw
