Root canal treatment

Root canal treatment can save a severely infected tooth that would otherwise have to be extracted.

Often just referred to as a “root canal”, root canal treatment becomes necessary when tooth nerves have become infected.

This can occur as a direct result of decay or when a crack in a tooth extends into the pulp – the soft tissue in the central part of a tooth.

The Root Canal Procedure

The Root Canal Procedure

Root canal treatment is like a filling that extends into the tooth root. It entails:

Removal of diseased tissue

Cleaning, filling and sealing the affected area

Placing a dental crown to restore the tooth to full function

Local anaesthesia and modern treatment techniques minimise discomfort during the root canal procedure, and many root canals can be completed in a single appointment.

Your tooth may feel sensitive for a few days after treatment, especially if you were experiencing pain before the procedure. Any discomfort can be relieved with prescription or over-the-counter medications.

If you suspect you have a badly infected tooth, contact us to find out whether a root canal procedure may be able to save it.

Signs you might need a root canal

Several problems can result in the need for root canal therapy. The main culprits are deep decay or a cracked tooth.

The most common symptom of a root canal problem is moderate to severe pain.

Other signs you may need root canal treatment include:

  • Prolonged sensitivity after hot or cold food or drinks
  • Discoloration of the tooth – an indication that the nerve is dying
  • Sore, swollen gums
  • Gums darkening in colour

In some cases, there may be no obvious symptoms that you need root canal treatment.

You might also need a root canal after repeated dental work on the same tooth or if you have a defective dental crown.

Benefits of root canal treatment

Benefits of root canal treatment

In restoring an infected tooth to full function, root canal treatment provides benefits such as:

  • Ending the misery of severe toothache
  • Enabling you to eat the foods you enjoy
  • Allowing you to smile with confidence

A root canal also eliminates the bacteria that caused the decay and inflammation. This prevents infection spreading to surrounding teeth and other areas of your body including vital organs.
