Root Canal Treatment: Saving your teeth

Root canal (endodontic) treatment replaces any damaged or infected pulp with a filling in the central part of the tooth. Dentistry @ Ballarat offers precision root canal treatment specific to your needs.

You may need one or more visits to complete the treatment, depending on the complexity of the root canals in your tooth. We will carefully examine your tooth to determine the right treatment, meaning minimal visits and the best result for you.

Our process ensures an infection-free root canal that is sealed with long-lasting barrier materials (the root filling). The team will restore your tooth and protect the biting surfaces to produce a strong, healthy tooth and long-lasting result.
