Root Canal Treatment in Narre Warren

Root Canal Treatment at Narre Warren Dental CareIf you have a tooth with a cavity, crack, excessive wear or have been affected by gum disease, your teeth are susceptible to serious damage.

Bacteria that get inside the tooth can destroy the root and the soft tissue or pulp inside the tooth. Infection, pain and swelling are usually the result.

Instead of resorting to extraction, you can maintain your tooth with root canal treatment. Using modern equipment, the dentists at Narre Warren Dental Care perform these procedures with care and precision.

What the Process Entails

Depending on the severity of the infection, your dentist may prescribe an antibiotic for the infection prior to performing the actual procedure.

The root canal procedure then begins with the administration of a local anesthetic. Next, the dentist removes the damaged or infected nerve tissue and fills the infected root with an antibiotic to treat any remaining infection. The tooth root is then packed with filling material. Finally, the tooth is capped with a crown to protect it, due to weakness and instability resulting from damage caused by the infection.

Helping Patients Feel Comfortable

Caring and compassionate, our dentists will walk you through what you can expect during the root canal treatment. We offer sedation options that also can help you feel completely at ease during the procedure. With dental sedation, you will likely not even remember that you had any dental treatment!

If you’re experiencing tooth pain, it’s essential to seek care straight away. That’s because the infection will continue to cause additional damage that could lead to tooth loss and the need for more serious and costly treatment. Remember that prevention is always better than cure.
