Root canal therapy is commonly performed at our clinics and all the dentist are extremely well versed in the procedure. The treatment simply involves removing the affected tooth’s nerve and pulp, before cleaning and sealing the area.
At Rouse Hill Smiles, not only do we aim to save the patient’s tooth, but the treatment also helps to prevent the tooth’s surrounding tissue from becoming infected. Once a tooth has undergone root canal therapy, we also place a crown over it to further protect the tooth’s structure from erosion.
There are a number of factors which may make you a candidate for root canal therapy. These include:
- A cavity so large, it extends into the nerve
- Evidence of an abscess
- Severe pain and discomfort
- Past tooth trauma, causing the nerve to die
If you’re experiencing or are concerned about any of the factors above, please contact Rouse Hill Smiles at (02) 8381 0489 today to schedule a consultation with our friendly dentist. We offer same-day appointments and are open until late on Thursday evenings.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
