Root canal treatment is indicated when the nerve inside your tooth’s root canal space becomes inflamed, infected or damaged. This treatment allows the infection to be treated, your natural tooth to be saved and most importantly to get you out of pain. At White Dental and Cosmetic Rooms our friendly and highly skilled team ensure your comfort from start to finish of the procedure.
Root canal treatment can often be completed in a single appointment, however there may be cases where two or more appointments may be needed.
Firstly, we’ll use local anaesthetic to ensure the procedure is painless for you. After which a rubber dam sheet is used to isolate the tooth in question and prevent recontamination by bacteria into that tooth. The infected or inflamed nerve is gently removed, after which the root canal space left behind is disinfected and washed from the inside. Lastly the tooth is sealed from top to bottom with root canal filling material, which prevents re-infection.
After your root canal treatment, we may recommend placing a crown to protect the tooth and restore its strength and function.
