Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal Treatment is a necessary alternative to the extraction of a tooth. In the event the nerve is either dying or is dead, root canal therapy will likely be required.

Root canal therapy is conducted using hi-tech nickel titanium files, which are controlled by a computerised chip regulating the torque applied to the file. This greatly reduces file breakages, improves root canal filing, and ultimately delivers a superior final result.

A common misconception is root canal therapy is a painful procedure – which is not the case. Root canal therapy can be a pain-free procedure and is similar to having a cavity filled. The main objective is to relieve pain caused by infection.

Root canals can assist in cases of:

– Inflamed/infected tooth pulp; – Severe sensitivity to hot and cold elements; – Tooth decay; – Chipped or broken teeth; – Blow to the tooth; – Swelling or tenderness near the infected tooth; and, – Repeated dental procedures.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
