What is Root Canal Treatment?

Pulp, found at the centre of your tooth, is made of blood vessels that help build the surrounding tooth structure. If this pulp becomes infected, it can lead to deep decay, cracks, chips and trauma to the tooth. Root canal treatment aims to remove the infected pulp and seal the tooth to avoid extraction.

Emergency Root Canal Treatment

In some cases, root canal treatment may be needed as an emergency procedure to alleviate severe pain or infection. Timely intervention is crucial in these cases. At Chapel Gate Dental, we can provide emergency root canal treatment to help reduce your discomfort fast. Our emergency treatment can relieve your immediate pain while also preventing complications such as loss of the affected tooth.

Is Root Canal Therapy Painful?

Root canal therapy is not typically painful. In fact, with modern techniques and pain management, root canal treatment is a relatively comfortable procedure that alleviates dental pain. Our dentists use local anaesthesia to numb the area, ensuring you’ll feel little to no discomfort during the procedure. Most patients report that having root canal therapy today is as easy and painless as getting a filling.

Step by Step Procedure

Our dentists strictly adhere to a systematic procedure when performing root canal treatment. During the procedure, we execute the following steps:

  • Anaesthesia is injected to numb the infected area where the procedure will be done.
  • A small hole is made at the top crown to gain access into the tooth.
  • Tooth pulp is removed and the interior of the tooth is thoroughly cleaned.
  • Once cleaned, the tooth is prepared for the crown.
  • The crown is placed over the tooth and is completely sealed.

Why Have a Root Canal Performed?

There are a number of reasons why you might need root canal therapy, including:

  • Extreme sensitivity to very hot and cold items
  • Severe tooth decay that reaches down into the root
  • Infection found deep inside of the tooth
  • Long term toothache
  • Pain radiating from one area of your tooth to another
  • A blemish on your gum releasing blood or pus

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
