Root Canal Treatment


Endodontic Treatment

Untreated cavities, cracks, chips, or trauma to your teeth encourage harmful bacteria to enter the inside of your tooth (otherwise known as ‘dental pulp’), causing infection. Endodontics is a branch of dentistry concerned with treating this sensitive inner area, ridding it of infection.  

We treat infected teeth with root canal treatment. Although it involves treating the inside of your tooth, it is often a straightforward and painless procedure involving seven simple steps:

We will take x-rays of your teeth to examine the damage

We will administer a local anaesthetic to ensure your treatment is as comfortable as possible 

We open your tooth up and remove the infected pulp from within

If you have a dental abscess, we will drain it 

Then we clean your root canals and fill them with a rubber-like material 

We may place a crown (prosthetic tooth) on top to restore your natural smile

Frequently asked questions

  • What is preventative dentistry?
    Preventative dentistry refers to the practices and procedures aimed at preventing dental problems before they occur or worsen. The goal of preventative dentistry is to maintain good oral health, prevent tooth decay and gum disease, and avoid the need for more invasive and costly dental treatments. Examples of preventative dentistry include regular dental checkups and cleanings, fluoride treatments, dental sealants, and oral hygiene education. Through these practices, preventative dentistry helps to promote healthy teeth and gums and reduce the risk of dental problems in the future. Preventative dentistry is important for people of all ages, and it is especially crucial for children as they develop their permanent teeth. By establishing good oral hygiene habits early on and receiving regular preventative dental care, children can avoid many common dental problems and maintain good oral health throughout their lives.
  • Why is it important to visit a general dentist regularly?
    Regular visits to a general dentist are important for maintaining good oral health. General dentists can detect early signs of dental problems, such as cavities and gum disease, before they become more serious and require more invasive treatments. They can also provide preventive services such as dental cleanings and fluoride treatments to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
  • How often should I visit a general dentist?
    Most general dentists recommend that you visit them for a dental health review at least annually. However, the frequency of your visits may depend on your individual dental health needs. If you have a history of dental problems, your dentist may recommend more frequent visits.
  • How can I find a good general dentist?
    You can find a good general dentist by asking for recommendations from family and friends, checking online reviews, and researching dentists in your area. It's important to choose a dentist who makes you feel comfortable and who takes the time to explain your dental health needs and treatment options.
