Root Canal

At Blue Mountains Dental Centre, our dentists understand that root canals can seem like a daunting procedure. That’s why we strive to make the experience as smooth and painless as possible for all of our patients. Our team is highly trained and experienced in performing root canals, ensuring that you receive a high quality of treatment.

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.

Why Would I Need a Root Canal?

Root Canal

If you’re experiencing pain or inflammation around your teeth or gums, you may have a pulp infection. A pulp infection occurs when tooth decay reaches the sensitive pulp or nerves of the tooth, and can lead to complete tooth decay and loss. A root canal is a procedure that remove the pulp and cleans inside your tooth to remove the infection.

Common symptoms include:

  • Toothache
  • Tenderness or pain when you bite or chew
  • Lingering sensitivity, especially when eating hot or cold foods
  • Gum discolouration or swelling
