Root Canal Treatment

If you’re experiencing the discomfort of painful, inflamed, or infected teeth trust us for effective root canal treatments on the Sunshine Coast.

Root Canals For Pain Relief

Are you experiencing throbbing pain in your teeth, especially while eating or drinking? Root canal treatment is precisely designed to address this discomfort by removing the dead nerve and eliminating bacteria from inside the infected tooth. This not only prevents reinfection but also saves your natural tooth from extraction.

Why Root Canal Matters

Pain Relief: Picture putting an end to the persistent pain by the first appointment. With our advanced technology and modern techniques, root canal therapy can be comfortably performed under anaesthesia, offering a painless process comparable to placing a white filling.

Preserving Your Natural Tooth: Instead of extracting the tooth, a root canal allows for the removal of the dead nerve, careful cleaning, disinfection, and complete filling and sealing of the tooth. This preserves your natural tooth, ensuring its longevity and functionality.

Structural Support with a Crown: After completing the root canal, placing a crown over the tooth provides structural bracing. This results in improved chewing function, biting sensation, and a natural appearance. Additionally, it protects the tooth from further wear and tear.

Dental Care You Can Trust

Root canals, also known as endodontic treatment, are among the most common dental procedures performed today. Your well-being and satisfaction are our top priorities, and we will work diligently to ensure your root canal treatment is a smooth and successful experience.

Our root canal procedure begins with a comprehensive assessment of your tooth. We will take x-rays to carefully examine the root canal and pulp chamber, identifying areas of infection and decay. This thorough evaluation helps us develop a personalised treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.

Once diagnosed, local anesthesia is administered to ensure the patient’s comfort throughout the treatment.

The dentist then creates an access opening in the crown of the tooth to reach the pulp chamber and root canals. The infected or damaged pulp tissue inside the root canal(s) is carefully removed using specialised instruments.

After the pulp is removed, the dentist thoroughly cleans and shapes the inside of the root canal(s) to remove any remaining infected material and create space for filling material. The root canal(s) are then filled with a biocompatible material, usually gutta-percha, to seal the space and prevent reinfection.

Following the filling, the access opening in the tooth’s crown is sealed with either a temporary or permanent filling material to prevent bacteria from entering the tooth. In some cases where significant tooth structure has been lost, a dental crown may be placed over the tooth to restore its strength and functionality.

Following your root canal procedure, our dentists will provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for your treated tooth.

This guidance includes information on any further necessary treatments, tips to prevent reinfection, and guidance for maintaining optimal oral hygiene during the healing process.

Our team is committed to supporting your recovery and ensuring the long-term success of your root canal treatment.
