Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic treatment, is a complex, precision and cost effective dental procedure commonly out of the scope of general dentists due to the lack of dedicated equipment, experience and knowledge in tooth morphology. Christchurch Boutique Dental prides itself in being an expert in this field and the ability to deliver specialist-level care, using our advanced precision microscope.
Root canals are needed when the nerve of the tooth become infected (abscessed) due to dental decay, trauma, a cracked tooth or when the previous root canal treatment fails.
Root canal treatment is a delicate procedure and care must be taken to ensure the tooth is adequately anaesthetised. Root canals can sometimes be very fine or occasionally calcified or blocked completely. There is often great difficulty locating and negotiating these canals. Extensive training and an operating microscope are required to deliver a successful treatment, avoiding cost, pain, and often unnecessary tooth extraction.
