Endodontic Treatment (Root Canal Therapy)
Damage caused by decay or injury to the exterior of a tooth can often be fixed by dental treatments such as fillings, but once the infection gets inside the tooth and affects the dental pulp, then endodontic treatment - also known as root canal therapy - may be required to save the tooth.
A root canal is a dental procedure that removes the infected dental pulp, cleans the affected area and seals it to prevent any bacteria from entering, preserving the interior of the tooth.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
For some of us wisdom teeth can start growing from our early teenage years right up to our mid-twenties. While they may not cause problems in the early stages of development, they may cause discomfort and pain later down the track.
Traditional fillings were usually made of silver amalgam or mercury which aren't very aesthetically pleasing and are thought to actually put the tooth at a higher risk of fracture.
White fillings are now available so people will no longer have silver glinting from the dark corners, when they open their mouths.
