Root Canal Treatments at Albany Creek Dental

At Albany Creek Dental, we understand that the thought of a root canal treatment can be daunting. However, with advances in dental technology and our commitment to patient comfort, this common procedure is far less intimidating than it once was. Root canal treatments are a vital part of our dental services, designed to save teeth that might otherwise need to be extracted due to infection or damage.


Understanding Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic therapy, is necessary when the pulp inside your tooth becomes infected or inflamed. The pulp can be damaged due to several reasons, including deep decay, gum disease, cracked fillings, injury, or wear and tear. If left untreated, damaged pulp can lead to severe infections, abscesses, and even bone loss around the affected tooth.


The Albany Creek Dental Root Canal Process

Our approach to root canal therapy focuses on patient comfort and the preservation of your natural tooth. The process typically involves the following steps:

Diagnosis: Our experienced dentists will thoroughly examine your tooth and take X-rays to determine the extent of the damage or infection.
Anaesthesia: To ensure a pain-free experience, local anaesthesia is administered to numb the affected tooth and surrounding area.
Removing the Infected Pulp: A small opening is made in the crown of the tooth to access the infected or damaged pulp, which is then carefully removed using special dental tools.
Cleaning and Sealing: After the pulp is removed, the root canal system is meticulously cleaned and shaped. It’s then filled with a biocompatible material and sealed to prevent further infection.
Restoration: Following the root canal, a crown may be recommended to restore the tooth’s strength and appearance. The crown not only protects the treated tooth but also ensures it functions like any other tooth.
