We use the latest techniques to ensure the process is as smooth and painless as possible, saving your natural teeth and smile. Say hello to relief and goodbye to worries with us by your side.

What is Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal treatment is more than just a dental procedure; it saves teeth that might otherwise be lost to infection or injury. If you’ve ever had deep fillings, crown work, bridgework, faced a dental abscess, or battled severe toothache, root canal therapy could be the hero you need. Our main aim? To kick pain to the curb and keep your natural tooth right where it belongs.

Why might you need one? When your tooth’s inner pulp (where the nerves and blood vessels live) is exposed, this can cause infections. That’s where we come in. With a root canal, we’re not just treating a tooth; we’re preserving your smile and sparing you from the hassle and expense of a full tooth replacement.

Choosing root canal treatment at Aesthetique Dental is opting for a team committed to your smile, health, and comfort. Let’s keep your oral health on track, together.

What does Root Canal Treatment involve?

Root canal treatment is a multi-step process designed to save a tooth that has been infected or damaged. Here’s a breakdown of what you can expect during each stage:

The first step involves thoroughly examining the affected tooth, including X-rays, to determine the extent of the damage or infection. This helps us plan the best approach for your root canal treatment.

Local anaesthesia is administered around the affected tooth to ensure you’re comfortable during the procedure. This step helps minimise any discomfort, making the process virtually painless.

Your dentist will make a small opening in the crown of the tooth to access the pulp chamber. This is where the infected or damaged pulp lives.

The infected or damaged pulp is carefully removed from the chamber and root canals. Special instruments are used to clean out the canal thoroughly.

After the pulp is removed, the canal is cleaned and shaped precisely to ensure it can be filled properly. This step is important for preventing further infection and ensuring the longevity of the tooth.

The cleaned and shaped canal is then filled with a biocompatible material, usually a rubber-like material called gutta-percha. This step seals the canal, preventing bacteria from entering in the future.

In cases where the treatment extends over more than one visit, a temporary filling is placed to protect the tooth between appointments.

Once the root canal and any necessary follow-up treatments are complete, the tooth is restored with a permanent filling or crown. This final step restores the tooth to its full function and appearance. A crown is often recommended to provide additional strength and protection to the treated tooth, especially if it’s weakened or at risk of breaking.

After the treatment, follow-up visits may be necessary to ensure the tooth is healing properly and to assess the procedure’s success. These visits also allow your dentist to address any concerns or adjustments that may be needed.

Root Canal Treatment FAQs

  • Is root canal treatment safe?
    Yes, root canal treatment is very safe with us at Aesthetique. As experienced dental professionals, you can count on us for an effective treatment that removes your pain.
  • Does root canal treatment hurt?
    Root canal treatment doesn’t tend to hurt. In fact, it involves little to no pain or discomfort, especially when performed by one of our dental experts. Often, patients experience an overwhelming sense of relief as the pain they have been suffering from is eliminated.
  • How long does root canal treatment last?
    A root canal treatment can last many years if the tooth is successfully treated and properly restored with a crown. It is important to keep up with your normal oral hygiene routine and attend regular dental check-ups and hygiene appointments so your dentist can monitor your treated tooth and overall oral health.
  • Is there an alternative to root canal treatment?
    The alternative to root canal treatment is to remove the infected tooth. We will do all we can to avoid this. A missing tooth can cause problems with chewing, or affect your facial structure and appearance of your cheeks and jaw. Removing a tooth could also incur further expense, with the costs involved in fitting a denture, bridge or implant as a replacement.
  • Can root canal treatment be repeated on the same tooth?
    Yes, a root canal treatment can be repeated on the same tooth. This is known as retreatment. The existing filling material is removed, and the root canals are cleaned and filled again. Root canal treatment may need to be repeated if the treated tooth suffers a fracture, a cavity develops, or it becomes reinfected.
  • Can root canal treatment fail?
    While rare, it is possible for a root canal treatment to fail following the procedure. Failure is usually due to a fracture, new decay becoming present, or the restoration (crown or bridge) becoming loose or damaged. However, most treated teeth last for many years without any issues.
