When a tooth is badly broken down or decayed it may require root canal treatment (endodontics) to prevent its removal. This involves removing the infected inner part of the root structure (the pulp) and disinfecting the area before sealing with a filling material. By making use of modern rotary endodontic equipment, at Skipton Road root canal treatment is a simpler, more comfortable procedure which we find to be highly successful.
We are fortunate to have the most up to date rotary endodontic equipment that allows quick and easy access into the pulp so that your root canal treatment can be completed with minimum fuss.
Once treatment has been completed it is usual to protect the tooth by providing a strengthening restoration which is usually a crown. Your dental team will discuss all options with you.
