Endodontics

At Cassio Road Dental Practice, we have an in-house endodontist who is able to manage a wide array of root canal related problems.

Why would I need root canal treatment? - Root canal treatment becomes necessary when the nerves (pulp) within a tooth are at risk of becoming, or have become, inflamed or infected. There are many reasons that this could happen:

  • Extensive tooth decay (caries)
  • Leaky fillings
  • Chips/cracks
  • Damage due to trauma, such as a fall

A root canal re-treatment may be indicated if you have had a root canal treatment in the past, and the tooth has since become infected.
If a tooth with an inflamed pulp was left untreated, there is a risk of developing severe pain and/or swellings.

What is root canal treatment? – Root canal treatment is the process undertaken to remove inflamed/infected nerves (pulp) within a tooth, cleaning of the canals to remove any remaining bacteria and sealing the root canal system with a filling to the tip of the root. It usually takes 1-2 visits to complete the treatment (depending on tooth and number of canals).
You will be given a local anaesthetic prior to beginning treatment, to ensure the process is pain-free.
After a root canal treatment, teeth tend to be at a higher risk of fracturing. You may need a protective cap (crown) placed over the tooth after the root canal treatment is complete

How can root canal treatment help me? – Root canal treatment is a simple and economical way of saving an infected tooth, which otherwise would have to be extracted. Success rates vary based on each specific tooth, however with proper restoration and care it could last a lifetime.
The recovery period for root canal treatment is short, and you should be able to resume normal activities the same day.
