Need Root Canal Treatment in Perth?
If you have a tooth (or teeth) that have been damaged by decay, periodontal disease, or trauma, then you may find that you will benefit from a Root Canal treatment. A Root Canal treatment is used when a simple filling is not adequate.
If you’re suffering from an acute toothache, then the good news is that this is often resolved immediately after your very first Root Canal treatment.
Saving Your Teeth Is The Highest Priority
Conducting a Root Canal treatment is a way of saving your tooth, and we always try and save a tooth if we possibly can.
Firstly, to avoid infection, we’ll begin by treating the nerve under the affected tooth with an antibiotic.

Now The Root Has Been Saved, What Next?
