Root Canal Treatment
When Should You Consider A Root Canal Treatment?
The pulp is made up of soft tissue that includes nerves and blood vessels. The pulp will begin to die if it’s infected by bacteria and further leads to infection causing pain and tenderness. This condition requires root canal treatment to save your tooth. Before the root canal treatment, you will usually be given a local anesthetic. This will numb the tooth and you will be very comfortable during the entire procedure.
At Go Dental Clinic you can expect to be made comfortable throughout your treatment in the chair. After your treatment, our Endodontist will provide you with the aftercare advice and answer any further queries you may have. With proper care, root-filled teeth may last a lifetime.

Frequently Asked Questions
The root canal treatment might be the solution if the soft pulp inside the root of a tooth is infected. Common symptoms of this problem are tooth pain, gum & tooth sensitivity or tooth discoloration. Initially, the dentist may need to take an X-Ray to determine if a root canal is necessary.
The root of the tooth is examined and the infected tissue is removed from the inside of the tooth. The inside of the tooth will be completely cleaned and filled to prevent re-contamination.
As with any other dental procedure, a local anaesthetic will be applied to the area around the tooth to numb the nerves and prevent pain during the procedure.
If a tooth infection is left untreated, it can lead to serious, sometimes dangerous infections. This is why oral hygiene is so important and if you are having any symptoms of an infected tooth/abscess you should set up a dental exam immediately.
You could have the infected tooth extracted, but that is not the best option. A gap between teeth due to a missing tooth can cause other teeth to shift out of proper alignment. You will experience loss of jaw bone where the tooth was as it naturally resorbs. It can also be damaging to your appearance.
Some dentists perform root canal procedures along with many other types of dental services such as cleanings, crowns, dentures, extractions. However, an Endodontist is a dentist who has undergone 3 years of specialization in root canal treatments. If a root canal treatment is not done properly, it can fail over a period of time and you may lose the tooth. Our endodontists use the latest technology and equipment during their procedures to make them more precise, efficient and provide better comfort for their patients while obtaining the most optimal results for each case.
