Root Canal Treatment Brisbane

Root canal treatment is a vital procedure designed to save teeth that are severely infected or decayed. It involves removing the damaged pulp within the tooth, cleaning out the infection, and sealing the tooth to prevent further complications. This procedure can alleviate pain and prevent the need for tooth extraction, ultimately preserving your natural smile.

What is a Root Canal?

A root canal targets the inner part of a tooth known as the pulp, which can become infected due to decay or injury. The goal is to remove the infected pulp, disinfect the tooth, and seal it to prevent future issues. This procedure not only saves the tooth but also stops the infection from spreading, protecting your overall oral health.

When is a Root Canal Needed?

You may need a root canal if you experience symptoms such as:

Severe tooth pain when chewing or applying pressure

Prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures

Discoloration of the tooth

Swelling and tenderness in the nearby gums

A persistent or recurring pimple on the gums

These signs often indicate an infection that requires prompt treatment to avoid further complications.

The Root Canal Procedure

Diagnosis: Your dentist will perform a thorough examination, including X-rays, to assess the extent of the infection.

Treatment: After numbing the area, an opening is made in the tooth to remove the infected pulp. The canals are then cleaned, shaped, and filled with a biocompatible material.

Restoration: The tooth is sealed with a filling or crown to restore its function and appearance.

What to Expect During and After Treatment

Before the procedure, local anaesthesia is administered to ensure your comfort. The treatment usually takes one or two visits. Afterward, you might experience mild discomfort, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers. Maintaining good oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups is crucial for the longevity of the treated tooth.
