Root canal therapy also known as Endodontics involves treating the nerves inside teeth. Unfortunately, deep decay or trauma may result in a nerve dying in a tooth. Which is often a very painful experience. When this occurs there are 2 options, either remove the tooth or preform root canal treatment. Many millions of teeth each year are saved from extraction by having root canal treatment. All general dental practitioners are trained to perform root canal treatment however the difficult cases may be referred to a Root Canal specialist called an Endodontist.

An artificial crown or ‘cap’ is often the best way to save a tooth and strengthen it. It fits over the prepared existing tooth and replaces the natural crown. It is permanently fixed for long-term function and is generally made from porcelain to suit your natural tooth colour.
Crowns also play a vital role in sealing and protecting teeth that have undergone root canal therapy as they become very weak with such extensive work and the crown is used to strengthen it.
For stained teeth or discoloured teeth, bleaching can lighten and whiten your teeth. Bleaching is a safe procure to undergo when instructed by a qualified dentist.
Bridges can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. They consist of an ‘artificial’ tooth anchored to the adjacent natural teeth. If a tooth is lost through an ‘accident’ or is too badly decayed to save with a crown, a bridge may be the treatment of choice. Bridges are often made of porcelain and metal alloy. Porcelain is strong and can be made to match the colour of natural teeth.
As we age our teeth gradually deteriorate. If teeth are badly affected by wear, trauma, decay or gum disease, your dentist may suggest extraction as the best treatment option. Even at a relatively young age, some people have extensive loss of teeth. When many teeth are lost or extracted, a denture may have to be fitted to maintain normal chewing, bite, speech and appearance of upper and lower jaws. Dentures can be made of acrylic or metal. Your dentist will advise you about the best material for you.
