Root canal treatment (endodontics) is a dental procedure used to treat infection at the centre of a tooth (the root canal system). The infection is caused by bacteria that live in the mouth and invade the tooth. This can happen after tooth decay, leaky fillings or damage to teeth as a result of trauma.
Root canal treatment is a very successful way of saving a tooth. The success rate is very high and if carried out by a specialist with modern instruments and materials then the success rate is close to 90%. At Wycombe Dental Clinic this procedure is done with great care and attention. Most teeth after receiving root canal treatment will need a cap/crown to protect them from further damage and infection.
