Root Canal treatment is a common prescription for abscessed teeth and is often a better alternative to extraction.
The benefit is to prevent further tooth loss and shifting. Abscessed teeth have infected tissue (pulp) in the centre. This causes pain and/or swelling. During Root Canal treatment, the tooth is opened and infected tissue removed. The space is then filled and the opening sealed.
A crown may be placed to protect the tooth. Our professional team uses state of the art technology by means of microscope assisted root canal treatment.
