Root Canal Treatment in Templestowe & Manningham

What is the Benefit of Having a Root Canal?

It relieves tooth pain, eliminates infection, saves the natural tooth from extraction, restores normal chewing function, and maintains the appearance of your smile.
Nobody wants a mouth full of decay and bacteria. As well as pain and a bad smell, tooth decay can result in the need to have teeth removed and even dangerous infections. A root canal is a great solution for most people suffering from diseased tooth pulp. It allows the structure of the tooth to be saved, maintaining a gapless smile without the need for implants.

How is a Root Canal Performed?

Once you have consulted your dentist and decided that a root canal is right for you, treatment is fairly straightforward. At your first appointment, the infected pulp will be removed, and any abscesses drained. The hollow of your tooth will be cleaned and shaped for the filling and a temporary filling will be inserted. Your tooth will be left to settle, and a second appointment will be scheduled. At this appointment your dentist with check that the infection has completely cleared and your tooth will be permanently filled or crowned.

When is a Root Canal Necessary?

Each tooth has dental pulp at its center. Dental pulp is the part of the tooth that allows us to feel temperature and is also able to alert us to the presence of dental issues. Cracks on the surface of a tooth can be caused by decay or even a bump or a knock. Through these cracks bacteria may enter the pulp causing inflammation and pain. Common symptoms that the pulp of a tooth is infected include:

  • Increased sensitivity to temperature (hot and cold)
  • Spontaneous aching
  • Pain with biting or pressure
  • Oral or facial swelling

While any of these symptoms could indicate the need for a root canal, it is possible for infection to spread to the pulp of a tooth without any indication. It is vital to have regular checkups to ensure the health of your teeth. Without treatment, bacteria in the pulp of your teeth could cause an abscess which, as well as being extremely painful, might result in the need to have the tooth removed completely.

What is Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic treatment, is a dental procedure performed to save a severely infected or damaged tooth.

Reasons for Root Canal Treatment

It is necessary when the pulp inside the tooth becomes infected or inflamed due to deep decay, trauma, or repeated dental procedures.

Root Canal Treatment Procedure Steps

The procedure involves removing the infected pulp, cleaning and disinfecting the tooth’s root canals, and filling them with a biocompatible material. In some cases, a dental crown may be placed on the treated tooth for added protection.

Signs You Might Need Root Canal Treatment

Symptoms such as severe toothache, sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures, swelling, and pus drainage indicate a possible need for root canal treatment.

Aftercare and Success Rate:

Following root canal treatment, proper oral hygiene practices, regular dental visits, and timely restoration of the tooth help ensure the long-term success of the procedure.
