OVERVIEW

ROOT CANAL TREATMENT

Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic treatment, is designed to remove infection and infected debris from a tooth. This skilled process involves cleaning, disinfecting and filling the tooth’s roots and may require multiple visits for completion. If root canal treatment is not carried out, the tooth may need to be extracted.

There are several reasons why a tooth may require a root canal filling. These include:

  • Deep decay extending into the nerve of the tooth
  • Repeated dental procedures such as deep fillings or crowns
  • A trauma or injury to the tooth
  • A crack inside the tooth

TREATMENT JOURNEY

QUESTIONS ABOUT

THIS TREATMENT

If you experience any of these symptoms, you may require a root canal filling:
  • Lingering and long-lasting pain
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold that doesn’t go away
  • A swelling or abscess in the mouth
  • Spontaneous pain that is difficult to control with painkillers
  • Waking up in the night with dental pain
It is a common misconception that root canal treatment is painful. In fact, if completed at the appropriate time and in the correct way, it should be pain-free. Afterwards, you may experience some discomfort, as you would after any slightly invasive procedure, however, this can easily be managed with pain relief and should subside after a couple of days.
Root canal treatment carries a success rate of approximately 85%. In cases where it doesn’t work, the procedure may need to be re-done (re-root canal treatment), or the teeth may need to be removed. Replacement options will always be discussed with the patient beforehand.
