Root canal treatment saves teeth that would otherwise have been extracted. After root canal treatment the tooth is pulp-less i.e. it has no vital tissues within. However, there are vital tissues surrounding the root e.g. the gum, periodontal membrane and supporting bone.
A root canal treated tooth can function normally and can be maintained with routine dental care and oral hygiene measures.
Root canal treatment involves the removal of the pulp tissues from the tooth in the event that it gets infected or inflamed.
The pulp can be infected or inflamed due to either deep decay or an extensive restoration that involves the pulp, cracked or fractured tooth due to trauma, excessive wear of enamel and dentine exposing the pulp, and sometimes as a result of severe gum disease.
If pulp inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can eventually cause pain, swelling and loss of the supporting bone.
A root canal treatment is needed when the pulp has been damanged by bacteria. The pulp may become inflamed if it's infected by bacteria, allowing the bacteria to multiply and spread.
Symptoms of a pulp infection include:
Root canal is necessary if you've had x-rays that show the pulp has been damanged by a bacteria infection. If you're worried that you may have an infection, speak to one of our member of staff about a consultation.
Root canal treatment procedures are relatively comfortable and often painless as the tooth is anaesthetised during treatment. After treatment, the tooth may be sensitive or tender for a few days due to inflammation of the surrounding tissues.
Root canal removes the infected pulp from your mouth. If you do not undergo treatment, the consequences can be severe. If left untreated, the bacterial infection can spread to the jaw, brain, blood and rest of the body.
Treatment time will vary depending on your particular situation. However most of our treatments last between 30-60 minutes.
