Canberra Endodontics Root Canal Therapy

The aim of root canal treatment (also called endodontic treatment) or root filling is performed to save a tooth when the nerve in the middle of it has become infected or is causing pain.
A root canal can save your tooth
A tooth can die for a number of reasons:

  • tooth decay
  • deep filling
  • trauma
  • tooth fracture
  • tooth or gum infection

A root canal enables your tooth to be saved by replacing the irritated nerve tissue in the root of the tooth with a filling.

Common Symptoms

A full evaluation will be necessary to determine the proper course of treatment, but a few common symptoms point to the need for root canal treatment.

  • Inflammation
  • Pressure
  • Pain and sensitivity
  • Discoloured tooth
  • A small lesion on gum tissue
  • Bitter taste

Root canal therapy is done over a few visits and is a ‘painless’ procedure contrary to popular belief.

Help is at hand for your toothache, and if you would like any more information about your root canal treatment, please don’t hesitate to ask us. At Mawson Dental Care our focus is always on your dental care and comfort.
