Root canal treatment has gained a bad reputation over the years and undeservingly so, it is shrouded in mistery and many believe it can only be painful. We believe this is simply down to a lack of understanding. One thing is clear, root canal is not painful and a very predicatable science.
At the practice we perform all root canal treatment under rubber dam (protection for your airway and maintains a aseptic field), use rotary motors and instruments, and fill canals with warm filling (System B) making sure we have a 3D seal helping prevent further infection by improving long-term prognosis.
Below are some simple examples of root canal- we like you to have a true respresentation of modern day dentistry- not just fancy veneers and orthodontics!
