Root canal therapy involves the removal of the nerves in a tooth, cleaning and inserting a filling to prevent bacteria from re-entering the nerve system. Root canal therapy may be required as a result of the following;
- Dental decay in the tooth that has caused bacteria to enter the nerve chamber
- Trauma that has caused the nerves in the tooth to die
- An existing crack in the tooth
- An existing abscess in the tooth caused by either a dead or dying nerve, or a periodontal infection
