Root Canal Treatment
Root Canal Treatment at Naenae
There’s no need to be worried if your dentist prescribes a root canal procedure to treat a damaged or diseased tooth. Tens of thousands of teeth are treated and saved this way each year, relieving pain and making teeth healthy again.
How Do Root Canal Treatments Work?
Inside every tooth are nerves and blood vessels that keep the tooth alive and healthy while also allowing you to sense sensation. The nerves and blood vessels of the tooth are located inside small channels or canals known as the root canal of the tooth. The nerves and blood vessels might become injured or infected in situations of severe dental decay, trauma, big cavities, or extensive tooth wear. When this happens, an infection develops, resulting in toothache or an abscess. A root canal is performed to restore and save your tooth. Root canal therapy involves removing damaged nerves and blood vessels, cleaning the canals inside the tooth, and filling the canals with a filling to seal the tooth again. Because root canal treatment is an extremely sensitive procedure, we at Northcote Dental do it with accuracy by utilising specialised rotating devices.
Root Canal Treatment Process
We take pride in offering painless operations and completing hundreds of successful root canal treatments each year utilising cutting-edge equipment at Naenae Dental Clinic. We can guarantee that you are as comfortable as possible throughout the treatment by using powerful local anaesthetic to thoroughly numb the region before the operation begins. If a root canal is required, the procedure is usually completed in two to three sessions. The first session will be focused on removing the infection, cleaning the tooth, and relieving any pain you are having; the second appointment will be focused on returning the tooth to its normal function.
If you are in discomfort or suspect you may need a root canal, please do not hesitate to contact our professionals. We can help you decide if this is the right treatment option for you. We’d be pleased to answer any questions you may have!
