“Quality is never an accident; it is the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives.”
The procedure of a root canal treatment is where there is removal of the dead or dying nerve inside your tooth that is causing pain.
Almost all the time, there is formation of an abscess inside your teeth just like a pimple on your skin and this needs to be ‘popped’ and drained. NO PAIN of course.
Once that is done we need to clean the ‘canal’ that the nerve was in with LASERS, OZONE and other chemicals and then seal it with a special filling called a root canal filling.
Modern treatments used for the steps of root canal treatment including lasers and ozone, allow us to complete most root canal therapies in a single visit.
Therefore there is no waste of your time and multiple injections and multiple visits.
The dental pulp is a soft tissue located in the roots within the teeth.
It provides nerves, nutrients, connective tissue, and blood vessels to the tooth.
Before the invention of root canal treatment, the tooth was often removed and discarded, but now root canal therapy allows us the chance to save the tooth from being lost.
First of all there will pain. This is a throbbing pain.
Then you won’t be able to sleep at night.
Root canal pain is perceived if you have one of the following:
As a result of these situations it can lead to root canal pain and therefore needing the root canal therapy.
Finally at Smile Concepts you will get the best care and comfort knowing it is painless and done in one visit.
The first thing you need to do is call the emergency dentist Sydney (in this case that is us)
Our direct number is 02 9267 7777.
Whilst you are waiting for the emergency dentist, you can take some pain killers that may relieve you pain temporarily.
Sometimes antibiotics are needed.
But the main thing is to get rid of the infection by seeking dental care. Do not delay.
If you wait too long to get root canal therapy then the bacteria infecting the tooth could spread and cause the bone and even more teeth to become infected.
Eventually pain, inflammation, and swelling will occur.
Consequently, several teeth may have to be removed if root therapy is not done in time.
When the infected pulp is not removed, pain and swelling can result.
Certain by products of the infection can injure your jaw bones.
Without treatment, your tooth may have to be removed.
Your restored tooth could last a lifetime, if you continue to care for your teeth and gums.
However, regular check-ups are necessary.
As long as the roots of a treated tooth are nourished by the tissues around it, your tooth will remain healthy.
Root canal cost varies form tooth to tooth depending on several factors. This includes:
If you have already had a root canal therapy in the past and the tooth has got infected again then the root canal cost increases, as you have to redo the root canal.
Sometimes it is better to remove the tooth and restore the space with a dental implant.
Below are several steps involved in the root canal therapy.
Our team carries out the entire root canal procedure.
Sometimes an endodontist is needed in some cases.
An endodontist is a professional dentist that specializes in root canal treatment and root therapy.
We are not an endodontist but dentist that have special interest in endodontics.
Following are the steps of a root canal procedure:
An endodontist is a dentist who has specialized in doing root canal treatment.
Is it worth noting that most dentist can perform root canal procedure.
However if there is a difficult case then we would refer you to an endodontist.
Another thing to note is that we are not a specialist endodontist.
We are a general dentist with a special interest in endodontics.
The main alternative is to extract the tooth.
As a result you will have a missing tooth.
This should be replaced with a dental implant to prevent the movement of other teeth and its resultant effects.
