Root Canal Treatments are Painless

I’ve seen countless patients dread the idea of a root canal because of the fear of pain. Watch Ingrid’s inspiring story above about her pain free treatment. To her surprise, she left the clinic smiling, realising root canal wasn’t nearly as bad as she had imagined!

Why is a Root Canal Treatment Needed?

The primary reason for root canal treatment is an infected tooth due to factors such as tooth decay, a cracked tooth, or gum disease. If not addressed, this could result in severe pain or tooth loss.

A Step-by-Step Guide to the Root Canal Treatment Process

  1. Diagnosis: The dentist evaluates your tooth and determines if a root canal treatment is required.
  2. Local Anaesthesia: The area is numbed to ensure a pain-free procedure. Yes, no pain!
  3. Remove Infected Pulp: The dentist creates an opening, removes the infected pulp, and cleans the area.
  4. Clean & Disinfect: The tooth’s canals are meticulously cleaned and disinfected to eliminate bacteria.
  5. Fill & Seal: Canals are filled with a rubber-like material and sealed with a temporary filling.
  6. Crown Placement: Finally, a crown or other restoration is placed to restore the tooth’s function and appearance.

Voilà! Your tooth is now healthy and ready for action
