Root Canal Therapy

Do you have tooth pain? You may need root canal therapy.

Root canal involves saving an infected tooth from extraction

Root canals are undergone to treat and effectively save an infected tooth from extraction.

Endodontics (often referred to as root canal therapy) is the area of dentistry dealing with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders of the dental pulp. Root canal therapy conserves a tooth that has been damaged by decay, fracture or an abscess and the main objective of this procedure is to save diseased or injured teeth. If this procedure is successful then your tooth can be restored without the need for an extraction.

Dr Rosenberg at Millennium Dental Mosman in Mosman has performed a number of root canal procedures and is highly skilled and talented at salvaging damaged teeth. Root canal therapy is the last option for sufferers to save their tooth before extraction, get it done by an expert at Millennium Dental Mosman in Mosman.

How do I know if I need Root Canal treatment?

Dr Kulhalli and her Sydney dental team will monitor the health of your mouth and look out for any signs of infection, decay or general tooth stress that may signify the need for a root canal procedure. Most patients who don’t visit the dentist for a number of years will require a root canal procedure due to neglecting their mouth and dental health. When we perform a general check-up we may ask you questions and look for signs of the following:

  • Lingering tooth sensitivity when cold
  • Tooth pain to biting pressure or constant severe tooth pain
  • Impulsive toothache
  • Throbbing tooth pain
  • Tissue swelling of the face

If you believe you require root canal treatment, we do recommend that you visit us as soon as possible for treatment to avoid any aggravated problems as the pain may also be a sign of another dental condition.

If root canal treatment is necessary x-rays will be taken at your dental consultation so that we can take a deeper look at the extent of the damage. After this we will most likely perform a thorough dental hygiene clean, preparing you for your next appointment where we will perform the root canal.

What occurs during Root Canal Treatment?

Root Canal Treatment consists of removing the nerve that lies at the root of the tooth and is causing pain. A sedative dressing will be placed inside your tooth between each visit to help settle the surrounding tissues and destroy remaining bacteria. If root canal treatment is not performed bacteria will destroy supportive bone structure around the tooth and will inevitably lead to tooth loss. Once this has been performed we will most likely construct a dental crown to restore the strength and appearance of your tooth.
