Dental Root Canal – Maroubra Dentist

What Is Root Canal Treatment

Root canal is a treatment to repair and save a badly damaged or infected tooth instead of removing it. Millions of teeth are saved every year through root canal treatment.

You would need Root Canal treatment if the dental pulp in the root canal has been damaged or diseased. The pulp is a soft thread-like tissue in the centre of the tooth that contains blood vessels and nerves.





What Does Root Canal Treatment involve?

Root Canal requires a few dental appointments.

The first stage involves clearing out the dental pulp from the root canal. This is done by making an opening through the back of the tooth.

The root canal is then cleaned and enlarged in preparation to be filled.

A special material is inserted into the root canal and sometimes that includes a rod for structural support. Then the root canal is sealed with cement.


How Long Will the Restored Tooth Last?

A root canal treated tooth usually lasts a lifetime with proper care. It depends primarily on the quality of the individual’s oral hygiene.

Good oral hygiene and regular dental exams are necessary to prevent further problems.
