Did you know?..
A severely infected tooth may be saved from extraction by root canal treatment.
The root canal can become infected or diseased for a myriad of reasons.
These can include:
- Tooth decay
- Fracture or chipping
- Injury to the tooth caused by external factors or accident
During root canal treatment the infected nerve is removed and the canal is cleaned, sterilised and sealed to protect it from further infection or an abscess forming.
Here to help…
Depending on the complexity or length of infection the treatment can take several visits to correct. The staff at PVB Dental are experts in this field so you know you are in safe hands.
We also offer a number of sedation options for anxious patients.
