Root Canal at Randwick Dental Clinic

Illustration of inside of toothWhat is a root canal? You can think of it like a filling that extends deeper into the tooth, sealing off the hollow chamber inside (where a nerve once rested). We recommend them on teeth affected by:

  • Abscesses
  • Severe pain and hypersensitivity
  • Large fractures
  • Deep areas of decay
  • Cracks extending into the root

As with a filling, the tooth gets numbed beforehand to eliminate the risk of any sensitivity. After an opening is created, the diseased nerve is removed and the hollow chamber inside is medicated then sealed off.

Many root canal teeth will benefit from a crown afterward to protect the brittle tooth from breaking. Together, your new restoration and completed endodontic procedure will help you to preserve your tooth for several more years. The dentist can place a provisional crown on the day of your treatment, with a permanent restoration ready to bond in place later. Plus, with our digital scanning, there’s no need for a gooey impression!

Advantages of Rotary Endodontics

Traditional root canal therapy used to mean making multiple trips to your dentist’s office for treatment. Not anymore! We’ve invested in the most advanced resources available, including rotary tools that allow us to work more efficiently.

As a result, you can enjoy a gentler experience and complete the root canal in just one appointment. Feel free to request a sedation option or watch your favourite movie on one of our ceiling-mounted televisions while you’re here.
