Root Canal Treatment in Coorparoo

Also known as the pulp canal, “root canal” is the term used to describe the root portion of the pulp cavity. The nerve of the tooth resides within the root canal. If one of your teeth become severely decayed or infected, a root canal is often in order.

The Benefit of a Root Canal

The primary advantage of a root canal is that it saves the tooth. Instead of extracting the tooth, the nerve and pulp are removed. Your dentist will then clean and seal the inside of the tooth. If you put off treatment, the tissue that surrounds the tooth will become infected, and abscesses may develop.

What Is the Procedure Like?

The root canal procedures of today have improved dramatically from those of the past. At Complete Dental Coorparoo, our highly skilled dentists will ensure that you are as comfortable as possible before and during the procedure. After we provide a local anaesthetic to numb the tooth, here’s what you can expect next:

  • At the top of the affected tooth, a hole will be drilled so we can access the root canal.
  • We will remove the infected pulp and clean the space.
  • The canal will be shaped before being filled.
  • We will clean the canal with a sterilising solution before sealing it with a filling — usually composed of a rubber-like material.
  • So the root canal doesn’t become contaminated, your dentist will place a temporary filling in the tooth.
  • During this final stage of the process, your dentist will take out the temporary filling and restore and fortify the tooth with either a filling or a crown.

One of the benefits of having your root canal treatment performed at our office is that we can complete the procedure from start to finish. You won’t have to go elsewhere for the crown or filling.
