Root Canal Panania – Alleviate Your Discomfort With Endodontic Treatment
Do you have an infected tooth? Let us help you to relieve your discomfort and restore your tooth with a root canal in Panania.
If your tooth hurts when you eat or chew or feels excessively sensitive to temperature, then there is a chance that it could be infected. Unfortunately, tooth infections don’t clear up by themselves and can steadily get worse. As such, they need to be treated using a technique known as a root canal. Our experienced Picnic Point dentists provide root canal treatment in Panania for patients of all ages.
What is a Root Canal?
The root canal is the space inside your tooth that contains the soft tissue known as the dental pulp. Housed within the pulp are a whole host of nerves and blood vessels. If the outer tooth is damaged or cracked, then bacteria can enter into the softer tooth centre. When this happens it can be a painful experience.
For this reason, our Panania dentists will recommend root canal treatment (otherwise known as endodontic treatment in Panania or simply a ‘root canal’) to resolve any discomfort and save the tooth.
Despite the process being quite technical, root canal treatment in Panania is very common and rather than being a painful procedure, a root canal procedure is actually a comfortable process designed to get you out of pain.
Root Canal Panania – The Procedure
Root canal treatment often involves several appointments depending upon the extent of the infection. Our dentists in Panania NSW use some of the latest x-ray equipment to establish the extent of the damage.
After numbing the area with anaesthetic, the tooth is opened up exposing the root canal. The next stage of the root canal treatment involves removing all the infection from the root canal chamber. Once removed, the area is thoroughly disinfected. Once the root canal chamber is empty it is back filled with synthetic material and then sealed. Finally, a dental crown is used to cover and protect the tooth.
