Root Canal Therapy

Root Canal Treatment in Adelaide is an alternative to taking a tooth out if a tooth is very painful or infected. It is the process of taking out the nerve of the tooth and cleaning out any infection from the inside of a tooth. Root Canal Therapy is the best way to keep a tooth when it has become infected or painful beyond usual treatment measures. The full procedure may be over several appointments but the pain is usually gone by the first. Once Root Canal Therapy is completed and there is no infection left in the tooth, we usually recommend a crown to protect the tooth from further trauma to allow the tooth to last as long as possible.

Why Root Canals are Necessary

When the nerves inside of teeth become infected, abscessed or start to die, it’s not possible to patch the affected tooth up with a filling or cover it with a crown. Instead, the damaged nerve needs to be removed. Otherwise a recurring infection and eventual tooth loss would take place.
You may need to have an endodontic procedure if you’ve experienced:

> A noticeable abscess along the gums
> Severe trauma, such as a car accident
> Large area of tooth decay
> Toothache

In some cases, untreated dental abscesses can be life threatening or result in hospitalisation. We make it our goal to treat dental infections before they have a chance to become so severe.
