A Second Chance for your tooth!

An infected tooth can cause pain, swelling, and serious health problems. If you’re dealing with advanced tooth decay, it may require a root canal treatment.

When is a root canal required?

Root canal treatment is required when there is an infection deep within your tooth, affecting the blood and nerve supply. You may not experience any pain or discomfort during the early stages of an infection. If left untreated, this kind of infection can not only be very painful but can lead to a tooth abscess or even tooth loss.

Are antibiotics an alternative?

When you develop an infection in direct relation to a tooth, it is no longer alive. The pain you feel arises in the tissues that hold and support the teeth in place. Infections can be settled by prescribed antibiotics, however only to provide a short term solution. The antibiotics are helpful however the root cause of the problem has not been resolved. The tooth requires thorough disinfection of the inside of the tooth, the root canal system.

What’s involved?

Root canal treatment removes the infection from the tooth, before sealing the tooth to protect the filling that has been placed, and restore you back to good oral health. This treatment is always carried out under anaesthetic which is used to keep you comfortable through the process.

How do I avoid a root canal?

Root canal treatment can be avoided by practising good dental care. Regular visits for checkups mean that we are in a good position to pick up on any problems you may not have noticed yourself. We will check any current fillings or crowns for damage or cracks and by treating issues in the early stages, you avoid infections and further complications that would ultimately lead to root canal treatment.

Tooth decay is one of the common reasons for root canal infections.
