Root Canal Treatment To Relieve Pain

What Is A Root Canal?

Also known as endodontic therapy, a root canal is a dental treatment that is used to remove an infection from the inside of the tooth and protect it from future infections. Filled with vessels, tissue fibres and nerves, this soft inner part, or pulp, is what keeps a tooth alive. If left untreated, the surrounding teeth, bones and tissues can begin to deteriorate, leading to severe pain and damage. Once the infection is removed, your tooth is cleaned, disinfected and carefully filled and sealed.

Some symptoms include:

  • Sensitivity to hot and cold
  • Swelling
  • Tender gums
  • Pain
  • Discolouration of the tooth

While it is one of the most dreaded dental treatments, with anaesthetic and an expert dentist it has a success rate of over 95%. With the skill and care of our team of dentists, your root canal treatment at Noosa Family Dental is performed with as little discomfort as possible.

The Benefits Of A Root Canal

Root Canals are a great solution to save a badly infected or damaged tooth. If you are suffering from an infected tooth, there are a lot of reasons why an endodontic treatment is an ideal solution. These include:

  • Stops the spread of infection neighbouring teeth
  • Stops the spread of infection to the bone
  • Appealing and reliable results
  • Works to save your teeth
  • Enhances both oral and overall health

 

Root Canal Therapies That Keep You Smiling

Why Did My Tooth Die?

Teeth are made up of a combination of hard and soft tissue, and while it may not seem like it, our teeth are alive. Healthy teeth are typically a shade of white, though variation can occur depending on diet and oral hygiene.

However, a dead or dying tooth is one that is no longer receiving the blood it needs. The discolouration is one of the most common signs of a dying tooth. Infection or inflammation of the nerve can occur due to a number of causes, including:

  • Decay
  • Repeated dental work
  • Deep fillings
  • Cracks
  • Extreme wear
  • Trauma

What are my options?

There are multiple options for managing a tooth that has died. We will discuss the dental procedure options available including root canal treatment, tooth extraction and implant, bridge or denture placement. Depending on the severity of your infection, a root canal treatment offers you the ability to keep your tooth in your mouth.

What is involved in Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal treatment involves the removal of the diseased or dead tissue inside the tooth in order to relieve pain and resolve the infection. An antibacterial dressing is placed inside the tooth to relieve symptoms. Root canal treatment is carried out over a number of visits. The treatments are always done with a local anaesthetic, so they’re not painful.

First, the debris inside the tooth is removed. Then the inside of the tooth is shaped and cleaned. At Noosa Family Dental we have a rotary endodontic system that greatly simplifies and speeds up the procedure. Digital x-rays are taken through the process to ensure we are on track.

The cleaned canals are filled with a rubber-based material called Gutta Percha which seals them from future bacterial penetration. After the root canal procedure is finished the tooth is more prone to fracture so your dentist will discuss with you the best way of preventing this. Depending on the prior state of the natural tooth, a crown, or new filling will be necessary for long term protection.

What to expect after your treatment

After your final root canal appointment, your restored tooth should no longer feel pain. It will, however, feel sensitive and tender for a few days. This discomfort can be relieved with over-the-counter or prescription medication recommended by your dentist. At Nossa Family Dental, we will guide you through the aftercare process so that your transition is as smooth as possible.

If you have sudden or sever pains after your treatment is complete, don't hesitate to get in touch for advice and assistance. With the right care and our specialist treatment, your teeth will last a lifetime.
