Root Canals in Munno Para West

Root Canal Munno Para WestMention ‘root canal’ and you may imagine a painful and protracted procedure. Fortunately, today’s root canals are nothing like they used to be.

What’s the Point of the Procedure?

The purpose of a root canal is to eliminate diseased nerve tissues inside of a tooth before the tooth can no longer function. An indication that something may be wrong with the nerve inside of your tooth can come in the form of either a severe toothache or an abscessed tooth. When either occurs, a root canal is often required. At Incredible Smiles, we take care of your endodontic needs here in the office.

A root canal represents an effective way to preserve your natural tooth. If a filling or crown cannot safeguard or repair your bite, a root canal will likely be recommended. Once a nerve has become infected, it’s essential that the pulp tissues be cleaned out. Additionally, it’s necessary to seal off the nerve canal. If these actions aren’t taken, an infection can expand not only to neighbouring teeth but the body.

Keeping You Comfortable

Prior to starting the process, we will ensure that the area around the tooth is sufficiently numbed. If you have any residual infection, we may also prescribe an antibiotic to get rid of it before treatment begins. Also, as your jaw may tire of being in an open position during the procedure, we will use a small prop on which you can rest your teeth.

Following your root canal, you will likely need a crown placed over it to prevent the non-vital tooth from becoming worn or chipped. We can provide aesthetically pleasing white crown options.

If you spot a large hole in your tooth, experience increased tooth sensitivity or find it painful to chew, contact us straightaway to book an exam. We’ll let you know if a root canal is recommended.
