Root Canal Treatment

When the nerve of a tooth dies, or becomes infected, you may experience pain and swelling. This can cause a severe toothache in extreme cases. Root canal treatment allows us to remove the infected or necrotic nerve while saving the tooth.

The Benefits

The most important benefit is removal of the nerve as the source of pain and/or infection without sacrificing the tooth too. In extreme cases root canal treatment is considered an emergency dental treatment to alleviate severe pain, and sometimes swelling.

Root canal treatment also allows you to avoid extracting the tooth, and the tooth replacement treatments that would follow an extraction.

The Process

Our professional team of dentists will go through all the pros, cons, risks and costs of your chosen treatment with you before starting the procedure. You will be given local anaesthetic to ensure a pain-free procedure. This is numbing for just the tooth or area in question. Our clinic always applies a surface numbing gel before giving the local anaesthetic injection, to give almost pain free analgesia.

If you have any concerns regarding analgesia, please do let us know so that we can make the experience as anxiety free as possible.

Once numb, a clamp, like a little metal clasp will be placed around the tooth to be treated, and rubber dam will be applied. Rubber dam is a way to keep the tooth clean, and free of contaminants from the oral cavity. The nerve in the tooth will then be accessed and removed. The canal space which housed the nerve will be thoroughly cleaned, washed, and shaped in preparation for placing the root canal filling. We use the latest endodontic rotary and filling techniques to streamline and optimise your treatment. After the root canal filling is placed, the excess is removed and the treatment is completed with a core or post & core depending on your needs.

Periodically during the treatment you may need x-rays. These are carried out using our digital x-ray machine which is adjoining the treatment space.

After root canal treatment, you will usually need to have a crown or onlay made to protect the underlying tooth and filling.

The Cost

Cost for root canal treatment will vary depending on the tooth, and complexity. We always encourage you to meet with our dentist for a consultation, and discussion of your particular needs and treatment costs.

General Dentistry Services

Dental Examinations

This is a critical part of the dental appointment.  At your first visit, and at subsequent check-ups, the dentist will carry out a thorough check of not just your oral health, but also the health of the peri-oral tissues.

Dental Fillings

Fillings are placed to restore teeth to function and appearance after trauma, caries removal or tooth wear. Fillings can be separated into two categories – silver coloured or tooth coloured. However we no longer place silver coloured fillings at our clinic.

Periodontal Treatment

Also known as non-surgical periodontal treatment or gum treatment, this is the treatment for people with periodontal or gum disease.  When you attend your regular check-up, our dentist will always check your gum health.

Regular Maintenance

This is the regular maintenance treatment that is normally sufficient for most people to maintain oral health. In addition to the dental check-up it involves scaling & polishing, fluoride treatment, and sometimes special tests depending on your specific needs.

Root Canal Treatments

When the nerve of a tooth dies, or becomes infected, you may experience pain and swelling. This can cause a severe toothache in extreme cases. Root canal treatment allows us to remove the infected or necrotic nerve while saving the tooth.

Tooth Extractions

Extraction is the treatment to take a tooth out under local anaesthetic. It is usually done because a tooth can no longer be restored, is too mobile, or for orthodontic treatment.
