Root Canal Therapy

Root canals are most commonly desired to save one or more teeth that have been damaged by decay, periodontal disease or trauma, and is at a stage where it is beyond repair by means of a simple filling. Root canal treatments are sometimes followed with a crown or bridge to act like a helmet to protect the compromised teeth.


When the decayed portions of a tooth have been removed it leaves a hole that needs to be filled. Fillings restore the tooth it to its original form as well as function. During the process the filling will be shaped to fit the tooth, then it will be polished to ensure longevity and also prevent staining.


Crowns provide a highly effective method to return full functionality to badly damaged or missing teeth. A crown, which is a tooth-shaped cap, also has the added benefit to restore the natural, healthy appearance of a smile. Through new technologies the crowns shape and colour can be matched perfectly to a patients existing teeth.


Bridges are designed to provide full functionality to a patient with badly damaged or missing teeth. The difference between a bridge and a crown is you may be recommended a bridge if you’re missing or have damaged multiple teeth. A bridge will help restore a patients confidence by returning a natural, healthy looking smile.


Dentures are a method used for the replacing of one or more teeth to return full functionality and smile, simply using an acrylic and/or metal appliance. There have been many advancements with the development of dentures to now provide you with a more natural and aesthetically pleasing look. While dentures are removable, they do require plenty of care and so it is important that a high standard of oral hygiene is maintained.


A partial denture is a removable dental acrylic and/or metal appliance that replaces the missing teeth in a patients’ mouth, used to restore full functionality. Partials may also be used for aesthetic reasons or to protect the remaining teeth from shifting and moving around.
