Save decaying teeth and prevent pain with Root Canal Treatments
Every dentist in Sydney knows how patients feel about root canal treatments. These tooth-saving procedures have a terrible reputation among dental patients as being incredibly painful and something to be feared and avoided. With today’s advanced dental technology, though, root canals (or “endodontic therapy”) actually come with very little discomfort and a lot of benefits. Our experienced dentists, including our root canal specialist, are equipped with the latest techniques to effectively address tooth decay, infection, and damage. Through this minimally invasive procedure, we can alleviate pain, remove infected pulp, thoroughly clean the root canal, and seal it to prevent further problems.
When decay or damage reaches the soft inner pulp of a tooth, infection often occurs. Once this infection sets in, the patient usually develops extreme pain in the affected tooth, and the only choice is to either extract it or perform a root canal treatment.
If the tooth is extracted, it will need to be replaced by a bridge, implant, or partial denture, but with root canal therapy it can be saved quickly and easily. During this procedure an anaesthetic is used to numb the tooth so that you will feel nothing at all while your dentist works. Then your dentist will drill out the infected tissue, replace it with inert material, and put a temporary filling in place until a crown can be placed to completely rehabilitate the tooth.
At Quay Dental, we offer a comprehensive range of dental services, including dental implants and Invisalign treatment. If you require tooth replacement after a root canal procedure, our dental implant solutions can restore your smile’s functionality and aesthetics. Alternatively, if you’re seeking orthodontic treatment, our Invisalign experts can provide you with discreet and comfortable aligner therapy.
By saving your natural teeth through our expert root canal treatment, we help restore your oral health and enhance your overall well-being. As a trusted Sydney-based endodontist, we prioritise patient comfort and utilise advanced technology to ensure precise and successful outcomes.
