How it works
The process begins with a thorough examination and diagnosis of the affected tooth. If a root canal is necessary, our experienced endodontists will numb the area using local anaesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. They will then carefully access the tooth's inner chamber, known as the pulp, which houses the nerve and blood vessels.
Using specialised instruments, the infected or damaged pulp is gently removed, and the root canals are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. This helps to eliminate any bacteria or debris that may have caused the infection. Once the canals are cleaned, they are filled with a biocompatible material called gutta-percha, which seals the canals to prevent re-infection.
After the root canal treatment, a dental crown or filling may be placed on the treated tooth to provide additional support and protection. This helps restore the tooth's functionality and appearance, allowing you to bite and chew comfortably again. With proper care, a successfully treated tooth can last a lifetime, saving you from the potential need for extraction and further tooth replacement options.
