Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment is a procedure done to save your tooth and prevent it from extraction when your tooth gets infected as a result of tooth decay or injury.

What To Expect?

This procedure usually requires 2 to 3 visits. 

During the treatment, our dentists clean the inner part of the tooth to remove infection, followed by a filling to seal the tooth and prevent it from further damage. 

Most of the time, it is advised to protect your tooth with a dental crown after root canal treatment.


No. Before the procedure starts, our dentists will numb the tooth and make sure the procedure is painless.

However, you may experience some discomfort for a few days after the visit as infection takes time to heal completely.

If pain persists, worry not, our dentists will be here to help you.

Your tooth may still be infected even though it is not painful. If left untreated, the infection can worsen and spread to the surrounding areas, further damaging the tooth

You can continue to enjoy most of your favourite food. However, you are advised to avoid hard food like nuts until a dental crown is made to protect the tooth.

Root canal treatment can keep your natural tooth lasting and allow you to chew like normal.

If a tooth is extracted, you may need to replace it to prevent consequences like difficulty in eating and shifting of neighbouring teeth.

Therefore, extraction is only advised when a tooth is severely broken down and not restorable.
