Invest in your oral health and treat a damaged tooth correctly with a safe and simple root canal procedure at EDentist Dandenong. Call us today to schedule your appointment.
Your dentist will numb the tooth with local anaesthesia to prevent any pain. The root canal process involves removing the damaged tooth pulp, cleaning the area, removing the infection, filling the canal with filling material, and then capping the tooth with a crown or filling. A root canal can save a healthy tooth and prevent a minor infection from spreading to adjacent teeth or developing into a more severe dental issue.
Tooth decay and bacteria often cause an infection and the need for a root canal because of the pain, difficulty chewing, and added issues. Our experienced dentists at EDentist Dandenong have many years of experience performing the procedure.
Signs that you may need a root canal in Dandenong include facial swelling, severe pain, long periods of hot and cold sensitivity in the mouth, grey or yellow discolouring, or when chewing is uncomfortable. Root canals can help improve oral health and stop pain from a damaged tooth. Patients who do not receive a root canal may opt to extract the tooth, but it should have an artificial replacement.
Losing a tooth without any substitute can cause serious dental issues and further complications such as gum disease, increased tooth decay, jaw pain and difficulty, and muscle pain. If you forego a root canal, complex treatments may be the necessary next steps, such as implants or dentures if you opt to replace your tooth.
If you have tooth pain, we will schedule an appointment to examine the tooth. We may take X-rays to see below the gum line. When you work with our dentists, root canals in Dandenong are safe and pain-free.
We understand many people avoid going to the dentist or are apprehensive, which is why we go the extra mile to offer only the best services you feel comfortable receiving.
