Root Canal Treatment

Root canal illustrationAt Smile Creation, we pride ourselves in offering quality yet affordable dental services for the whole family. Sometimes the best treatment required to save a tooth is a root canal.

A root canal is a treatment which cleans and removes an infected tooth or abscess causing pain or discomfort. Sometimes patients prefer to save the tooth as oppose to having it extracted. Where possible, our dentist prefers to save the tooth through root canal treatment.

The experienced team at Smile Creation, strive to provide root canal treatments that keep you as comfortable and relaxed as possible. Dr Sanjay and the team ensure your comfort by thorough communication and a relaxed environment.

Root Canal Treatment Benefits

A root canal treatment completely repairs and saves a damaged tooth. Many patients prefer to have their teeth saved where possible. This removes the need for an extraction when a tooth is severely damaged. Some benefits of a root canal include:

  • Removes the infection in the mouth and seals it off for future bacteria
  • Eliminates pain
  • All teeth remain intact
  • One-visit procedure so you can walk away with a healthy tooth again
  • Relieves the inflammation pressure in the mouth

When soft tissue in the gum becomes inflamed, it can cause infection and lead to severe tooth pain and tooth loss. It is majorly caused by prolonged tooth decay or tooth damage.

When the root canal is damaged, there is no real way to reverse it. The infection must be removed and cleaned, followed by sealing off the canal to prevent any further bacteria entering the area.

If you’re experiencing dental pain or gum inflammation, we encourage you to call us right away so we can address your concerns.

The first step to assessing your teeth and gums is to call us to book your appointment. Our gentle dentist, Dr Sanjay, will review your mouth and take X-rays if required.

We will then be able to complete the root canal treatment for you at your first appointment. This will get you out of pain quickly and have you walk away much more comfortable.

The procedure itself goes for about 30-60 minutes depending on the case. Give us a call if you’re unsure or have any questions.
