What Is A

Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment – often just called a root canal – can save a tooth otherwise beyond repair. It avoids extraction in cases of severe tooth decay or when a crack in a tooth extends into the dental pulp – the mass of connective tissue in the centre of a tooth.

Furthermore, saving your tooth helps to preserve jaw bone and maintain facial structure. Without the stimulus of a tooth root, the underlying bone will start to deteriorate – like muscle atrophies without regular use.

Some of the most prominent benefits of a root canal include their:

Benefits of a root canal include:

• Putting an end to severe toothache
• Restoring full function to a badly damaged tooth
• Allowing you to eat your favourite foods
• Saving your smile

What To Expect From A

Root Canal Treatment

Root canal therapy may be the only solution if you have toothache and tooth discoloration due to a dying nerve, which can also cause gum soreness, swelling or darkening.

Most teeth can be saved by a root canal. Possible exceptions are teeth lacking adequate bone support or with a severely fractured root.

If you have a badly damaged tooth, contact us to find out whether root canal treatment can save it.

What Is The Procedure Like?

Root canal treatment and recovery is relatively straightforward. The procedure has a reported 95 percent success rate. It entails:

• X-rays or scans to assess the extent of damage or infection
• Local anaesthesia to numb the area
• Drilling a hole in the tooth
• Removing infected tooth pulp, and sometimes the nerve
• Cleaning, disinfecting and shaping the canal inside your tooth root
• Filling and sealing the area
Root canal therapy generally causes no more discomfort than a routine filling

Afterwards, a crown may be fitted to provide additional protection for your tooth. With proper care, a tooth that has had root canal treatment can last as long as other teeth.
