Root Canal Therapy

Root Canal reatment in Melbourne

Lets First Understand What a Root Canal Is

Each tooth has tissue containing nerve fibers that run through the center of the root of your tooth, which are called “root canals.”

When this tissue dies as a result of a deep cavity or trauma, root canal therapy is needed. Without treatment, pain gradually worsens and the tooth can abscess and cause swelling.

Endodontic treatment, commonly known as root canal therapy is used to remove the dead tissue from the tooth. After numbing the area around the tooth, our Dentist will isolate the tooth and sterilise it in order to protect it from bacteria in the mouth.

We will remove the dead tissue from the canals and fill those canals with a rubber filling material. The tooth is then built back up and prepared for a crown.

Root canals can often be completed in less than 90 minutes during a single visit, thanks to recent advances in technology and new dental techniques.
