Root Canal Therapy

If you have a dead or highly infected tooth, you should seek dental care immediately. Quality Dental Care offers root canal therapy in Sydney. Ourhighly experienced team can provide you with skilled and effective root canal treatment to prevent the situation from worsening.

Signs of Severe Tooth Infection and Nerve Damage

Root canal therapy provides an option to save your tooth when bacteria have infected the nerves and blood vessels. You might require treatment if you have the following symptoms, as they can indicate a tooth abscess:

  • Pain when biting or chewing
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold
  • Swelling of the gum near the affected tooth
  • Oozing of pus surrounding the affected tooth
  • Facial swelling
  • Discolouration of the tooth

  • What is Involved in Root Canal Treatment?

    Root canal treatment is essentially the cleaning of the tooth's root canals. It involves removing bacteria (or dead pulp) from inside the tooth and sterilising the area. The dentist then shapes the canals and completely seals them with a filling material to prevent further infection. This procedure requires a minimum of 2 visits to the dentist, depending on the complexity and severity of the infection.

    Once the canals have been cleaned, sterilised and sealed, your dentist will place a customised crown over the treated tooth. In these cases, the crown provides strength, support and normal function to a tooth structure that has been weakened by drilling.

    Why Do I Need Root Canal Therapy?

    Proper oral hygiene is essential to avoiding infections, but sometimes the causes are not as clear. You may need root canal therapy because of:

    • Deep-seated and untreated dental decay
    • Decay beneath a deep filling
    • Trauma that damages a tooth
    • Grinding of the teeth (bruxism)
    • Advanced gum disease

    To diagnose the issue, your dentist will perform an examination and takex-rays of your teeth.
