CROWN AND BRIDGES
A crown is a type of dental restoration used to fix teeth that have been broken or root canal treated. You will need a crown to protect or cap the restored tooth, allowing you to eat and bite down on it as it was a real tooth.
Additionally, crown could be a good solution for you if you have discoloured fillings and would like to improve their appearance.

ENDODONTICS – ROOTS CANNEL TREATMENT
Endodontics (root canal treatment) is a form of dentistry concerned primarily with the roots and nerves in the roots of a tooth.
Root canals treatments are required when the pulp portion of the tooth in the roots become diseased. Most of the time caries in the tooth causes disease of the pulp but on occasions, other causes may result in the nerve of the tooth to die and discolour the tooth.
The dentist removes the diseased pulp and nerve under local anaesthetics and fills the canals with a special filling material.
Following root canal treatment in many cases, your dentist will recommend that the tooth is also provided with a crown or onlay. This is to reduce the chance of the weakened tooth fracturing and also to help protect the root canal treatment from becoming infected again.
Rest assured we will do everything possible to try and help you save your tooth, but if a removal is needed, we will make it as comfortable and pain-free as possible. Tooth extraction procedures today are far less painful than ever before. We will always make sure that the area is completely numb before removing the tooth. In many cases, a patient who has a tooth extracted experiences little or no discomfort and only minor bleeding.
