Root Canal Therapy

If you ever experience a toothache so bad that caused you sleepless nights and a headache among other signs and symptoms, chances are you have a root canal infection.

Anecdotally, apart from childbirth and kidney stones, a root canal infection is one the worst pains one can experience.

Most of the time, root canal infection is caused by bacteria infecting the nerves and blood vessels in the tooth pulp because of extensive tooth decay or cracks in the tooth. The good news that as long as the affected tooth is not beyond salvage, root canal treatment can be done to preserve the tooth. Otherwise, it may have to be extracted.

Root canal treatment involves initially removing all the infected and dead tissues in the tooth pulp and root canals. The narrow root canals are then filed to remove bacteria, straighten their curvature and to increase their calibre. After the entire pulp chamber and root canal complex are disinfected and rendered infection free, the root canals are then filled and sealed by a procedure known as obturation.

To render the tooth functional again so that it bear the load of daily mastication, a crown is strongly recommended. At our clinic, we are committed to save every root canal infected tooth by root canal treatment unless prognosis is poor.

The ORAL Concept

Options and Optimization

For our patients, we discuss treatment options and the clinical approach to be taken for their treatment needs, before finalizing their treatment plan. We practice the philosophy of optimal dentistry, which we believe will benefit our patients for the long term.


We are committed to restoring periodontal health as well as restoring the form and function of teeth for our patients. Very often it will require a multi-pronged approach. These include the control of caries, periodontal disease and root canal infections, as well as the reinforcement and replacement of teeth.


Much consideration goes into the aesthetic outcome of the restorations. Often, it’s not only about the tooth and nothing but the tooth, you’ll be amazed how the appearance of the teeth can have a huge impact on facial aesthetics.


We strive to maintain your oral health and aim to save as many of your teeth and have your restorations serve you for a long time to come. The goal of professional dental care is so that you as a patient can derive overall holistic health for life as a result of good oral hygiene and healthy masticatory function. Oral health maintenance should be done via regular dental checks biannually and any disease patterns can be detected early.
