Root Canal Treatment

Untreated cavities, cracks, chips, or trauma to your teeth encourage harmful bacteria to enter the inside of your tooth (otherwise known as ‘dental pulp’), causing infection.

Endodontics is a branch of dentistry concerned with treating this sensitive inner area, ridding it of infection.

How it works

We treat infected teeth with root canal treatment. Although it involves treating the inside of your tooth, it is often a straightforward and painless procedure involving seven simple steps:

 

  1. We will take x-rays of your teeth to examine the damage

  2. We will administer a local anaesthetic to ensure you feel as little pain as possible 

  3. We open your tooth up and remove the infected pulp from within

  4. If you have a dental abscess, we will drain it 

  5. Then we clean your root canals and fill them with a rubber-like material 

  6. We may place a crown (prosthetic tooth) on top to restore your natural smile

Why should I visit a Specialist Endodontist?

Specialist Endodontists have years of additional training and experience in this specific area of dentistry. They can diagnose and treat even the most complex cases, meaning you will face a reduced risk of complications during and after your treatment.
