Root canal treatment is required when a tooth becomes very painful and there is little hope of the problem resolving on its own. The treatment will also be necessary if an abscess develops in a tooth or there is a long-term infection in the bone surrounding a dead tooth.
The objective of root canal treatment is to clean out the spaces within the tooth or root canal system to rid them of bacteria. These are then sealed so that the system remains free of bacteria.
Dr. Kumar will be able to explain the full procedure and provide costing during your initial consultation.
As well as being uncomfortable, tooth sensitivity can lead to more serious dental problems, so it is important to discuss the issue with Dr. Kumar. He will be able to provide advice on dietary changes, seal the exposed surfaces and recommend effective desensitising dental products for use at home.
