Do I need root canal treatment?
Root canal treatment involves accessing and removing the infected or damaged nerves inside a tooth to resolve an abscess or infection.
Symptoms where root canal treatment may be indicated include:
> A noticeable abscess along the gums
> Past trauma to teeth, such as a car accident, sports injury
> Large area of tooth decay
> Facial swelling
In the most severe cases, untreated dental abscesses can be life threatening resulting in hospitalisation. Please attend to any suspected dental infections as soon as possible.
