When a Root Canal Is Necessary

Root canal therapy is done to preserve a tooth that has been damaged by injury or decay. When bacteria are present in the pulp of the tooth, your nerves and blood supply can become infected. If left untreated, an infection can destroy the surrounding bone or tissue and cause a painful abscess. The infection can even spread to other parts of your body with fatal effects.

The Skill for an Efficient Procedure

Our Dentist Dr Anisha Sanghavi achieved a master’s degree in root canal therapy and has specialised training in this area. She will carefully remove any areas of infection to relieve you of your discomfort. The tooth’s canal can then be filled with medicine to allow healing to take place. At a follow-up, the canal will be sealed off. Finally, we can restore the tooth with a device such as a dental crown to preserve your smile for years to come.
