The common misconception is that root canals are cringe-worthy procedures that cause pain, not relieve it. This is simply not true. The pain that exists is the result of the infection that is impacting the tooth’s innermost layer – the pulp. Once Dr. Bal removes it, you can expect to not only enjoy a pain-free smile but one that maintains all of its natural teeth. Call us today to find out more about root canal treatment in Nepean and what you can expect should you need it.

What Happens During a Root Canal?

To avoid tooth extraction, Dr. Bal will recommend that a root canal be performed. This process involves administering local anaesthesia to thoroughly numb the tooth and its surrounding area so that you feel no pain throughout the procedure.

Once the tooth is isolated with a dental dam, we will access the inner layers through a small opening in the crown. Identifying areas of decay and damage, we will remove these tissues as well as the pulp before clearing the canals of any additional bacteria and debris. Then, we’ll fill it with a biocompatible material known as gutta-percha. This will help to seal the tooth off from future reinfection as well as provide it with greater stability.

The last phase of root canal treatment will include a customized dental crown that will be placed over the tooth so that it remains protected. In the days following your root canal, you can expect there to be some discomfort; however, with an over-the-counter pain reliever, this soreness should only last a short while.
