Root canals become necessary due to two main causes: deep cavities that have damaged the tooth’s pulp, or severe trauma and infection. The process of the root canal itself involves drilling into the affected tooth in order to remove its nerve and pulp, then sealing it with a crown to protect it from further damage. Even though root canals have a reputation of being painful, at Blue Mountains Dental Centre we provide gentle and effective treatment to make the experience as comfortable as possible.
By using state-of-the art technology, our dentists are able to perform root canals quickly and efficiently. It’s important to note that while root canals are not always necessary, they are sometimes the only way to save a tooth from extraction. If you’re in need of a root canal, our team will provide you with all the necessary information and support to ensure that you get the best possible treatment.
