Root Canal

Root canal treatment can save an infected tooth from needing to be extracted. By taking the infected pulp from the tooth, we can keep the tooth and stop the infection in its tracks.

A tooth can become infected through decay, a deep filling or through trauma. Symptoms tend to include pain, sensitivity to temperature, discolouration, tender gums or swelling. If you suspect that you have an infected tooth, book in an appointment with your dentist. It’s important that you don’t leave it. If the infection spreads, we may lose our chance to save the tooth.

Why should you have root canal treatment?

What does the treatment involve?

Root canal therapy usually requires several appointments, the number will depend on which type of tooth is being treated. Between appointments, the tooth will be covered and temporarily restored.

Although root canal therapy has a reputation for being painful, the procedure should be no more uncomfortable than having a normal filling.

Looking after your treated tooth

If looked after properly, with regular brushing and flossing, your root canal treated tooth should stay trouble-free and provide a long-lasting repair. Even though the pulp has been removed, the tooth will stay intact because the canals have been sealed to prevent re-infection. Regular check-ups are also recommended so any problems can be detected early.
