Root Canal Therapy

Dentists performing root canal therapy treatment

RCT is required when the tooth in question is either infected (abscessed) or severely inflamed. The only alternative option is to extract the tooth.


Damage can occur from:


  • Cracks in teeth and under fillings can cause a tooth to become abscessed or inflamed as well.
  • Gum disease
  • Trauma
  • Extreme wear
  • Prior extensive dental work
  • Decay (bacteria) getting into the nerve system of the tooth (the root canals and pulp chamber)


In root canal therapy, we make a small opening to where the tooth’s nerves and blood vessels are. We clean the space, dress it, seal it and cover it with either a filling or a crown to strengthen.


Here at Boulton Dental we use a Zeiss microscope to assist with root canal therapy, which improves accuracy of treatment.
