Decay progressing in the tooth pulp/nerve causes the nerve/pulp to die and lead to pain and infection spreading out of the tooth, what most people would call an abscess.
Treatment is to clean, disinfect and seal the roots. If done well this can prolong the life of the tooth for many years.
Cost of treatment includes all single-use root canal instruments. Normally we would recommend the final restoration of the tooth with a crown after suitable time for the root filling to settle.
We have obtained postgraduate qualifications in root canal therapy and have invested in specialist equipment to be able to treat complex cases and prevent tooth loss. Please follow the link below for self referral regarding root treatment or to refer a patient (to professionals).
