Multiple Visit Root Canal Treatment in Gordon

Treat Your Damaged and Diseased Pulp

Root canal treatment, also called endodontic treatment, is a dental procedure where a dentist replaces a tooth’s damaged or infected pulp with a filling in order to restore and save the tooth.
The amount of visits your root canal treatment will take varies on a case-by-case basis. While a single-visit is possible, it cannot be guaranteed. Factors like the procedural level of difficulty, type of tooth affected and severity of infection/damage influence the length of time your root canal will take.
Usually, multiple root canal occurs when more than one tooth in your mouth has infected pulp, and hence requires multiple sequences of thorough clean, seal up, and protection from further damage. Professional consultation is the only way to understand what your treatment will involve and get an idea of how many visits it may take. To discuss your situation and any concerns, book a consultation with our experienced dentists in Gordon today.

Damaged or diseased pulp is usually the result of an issue that started in the outer layer of the teeth (the enamel) and has spread to the innermost dental layers. Common causes include:

  • Dental infections
  • Dental trauma
  • Cracked, broken or chipped teeth
Left untreated, the damaged tooth pulp can cause immense pain, swelling, eventual tooth loss and if infected, the bacteria can spread to the jaw bone and other parts of the body.
