Root CANAL TREATMENT

Our gentle root canal treatment will have you feeling 100% again

Are you experiencing extreme dental pain? Worried that your tooth may be infected? You may need root canal treatment. And while many tend to panic when they hear the three words ‘root canal treatment’, our careful therapy and empathetic approach will have you pain-free after your first appointment. What a relief!

What does root canal treatment entail?

Root canal therapy or endodontic treatment is required when the pulp (the soft tissue inside a tooth’s root canal) becomes inflamed or infected. When a tooth’s nerve or blood supply is damaged – usually due to trauma or decay – infection can spread within the root system of the tooth, causing root canal pain.

A common myth that root canal treatment is itself painful, stems from historical practices. However, rest assured that with advances in local anaesthesia and pain-relief medication, root canal therapy can be completed, pain-free. Now, that’s what we all like to hear!

Root canal therapy is a multi-phase process. The steps include: 

  • At your first appointment, we’ll anaesthetise your tooth and ensure it’s completely numb. We’ll then clean the tooth including the nerve chamber and will remove the damaged pulp. This allows the tooth to begin healing and also relieves the pain.
  • During your second visit, we’ll place a filling in the roots of your tooth to prevent the infection from reoccurring.
  • Dependent on the level of tooth damage, we may book you in for a third visit to restore and strengthen your tooth with a crown. 

Requiring a number of visits to our dental practice, we understand that the thought of root canal therapy can be a little scary. Here to put you completely at ease, we take the time to talk you through each step involved, always ensuring that you’re comfortable. In fact, we’ll be just like family once your treatment is complete (but be warned, we may expect a Christmas present!)
