Root Canal in Gordon

Say Goodbye to Teeth Sensitivity and Toothaches

Root canal 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. Depending on the circumstance, it may be completed over a series of visits to your dentist. A root canal is a common restorative dental treatment with a very high success rate provided that you continue to maintain good oral hygiene and routine check-ups at the dentist afterward.

When is root canal treatment necessary?

Root canal therapy treats damaged dental pulp, the centre (root) of the tooth comprised of connective tissue, nerves, blood vessels, and cells. Issues like severe tooth decay and infections that affect the tooth enamel (the outer layer) can lead to damaged or diseased dental pulp.
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.
You may need a root canal treatment if you are experiencing the following symptoms associated with damaged/diseased tooth pulp:
  • Severe, throbbing pain in the affected tooth
  • Sensitivity to extreme temperatures
  • Discolouration of a tooth due to trauma
  • Swollen face
  • Sensitive gums which are painful when chewing
