canal therapy can be considered as an advanced
procedure to save a tooth which a number of
years ago would have been extracted.
Canal Therapy is normally required when a
tooth has died, usually as a result of a large
amount of previous decay or trauma.
typical symptoms are pain and swelling which
unless treated will get worse and is known
as an abscess. By using very fine and flexible
instruments and magnification, the narrow
canal inside the teeth can be cleaned of all
infected material and shaped to accept a plastic
based filling material. Once the canal system
has sealed, a permanent restoration can be
placed on top.
