Root Canal Therapy

If your tooth pulp becomes infected, bacteria start to grow inside your tooth. This can potentially cause pressure, facial swelling, and pain. If you are experiencing discomfort in a tooth, contact us today to speak to a professional.


Tooth infection and discomfort

If your tooth pulp becomes infected, bacteria start to grow inside your tooth. This can potentially cause pressure, facial swelling, and pain. If you are experiencing discomfort in a tooth, contact us today to speak to a professional.

Endodontic treatment (or, "root canal therapy") becomes necessary when the nerve of your tooth is infected or diseased. In the past, if a tooth was infected, it would have been extracted. Today, the nerve of the tooth is removed and the tooth is retained. 

What is root canal therapy?

It's a treatment where inflamed or dead tooth pulp is removed, alleviating pain caused by an infected tooth. 

Dental pulp is the soft tissue in the canal that runs through the tooth; it's important for the growth, development, and general health of the tooth. 

However, after a successful root canal, a fully developed tooth can function normally even without the pulp. After the dental pulp is removed, the canal is cleaned and sterilised. The leftover space is shaped to a form that can be sealed with a filling material - this can prevent future infection. 

How long does it take?

The process can take multiple appointments, depending on how complex the tooth is and the length of time the infection needs to clear. 

Is it right for me?

Typical symptoms of endodontic disease include dental pain, tenderness, discolouration of the tooth, and/or prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold. If you're experiencing any of these symptoms, get in touch with us and we can help you understand whether you need endodontic treatment and what your best options may be.
