When decay is touching the nerve of your tooth, Fitzroy Dental recommends root canal treatment which is a procedure to save an infected or dead pulp and to avoid the spread of infection. Root canal therapy involves removing the infected pulp, carefully cleaning and shaping the inside of the root canal, then filling and sealing the root canal space. Sometimes the root canal anatomy can be very curve and challenging.

It is often recommended to place a crown or other restoration like an overlay on the tooth to protect and restore it to full function allowing the tooth to be like other teeth.

Sometimes a tooth with a dead nerve or a tooth that has undergone root therapy may have darkened over time, and following root canal treatment these teeth can be internally bleached to restore the natural colour to the tooth.

Do you have the following symptoms?

  • Severe pain while chewing or biting
  • Pimples on the gums
  • A chipped or cracked tooth
  • Lingering sensitivity to hot or cold, even after the sensation has been removed
  • Swollen or tender gums
  • Deep decay or darkening of the gums

Endodontics bring relief by:

  • Effectively numbing your tooth and gums for the procedure
  • Cleansing an infected tooth
  • Sealing the tooth from further decay or infection
  • Keeping your long-term oral wellness in mind
