Give painful, infected teeth the best chance of recovery possible with quality root canal therapy. ‘saving’ teeth damaged by trauma, decay or disease is possible even if the inner pulp tissue of a tooth is infected.

Endodontics is the part of dentistry that focuses on inner pulp health of each tooth. Every tooth has a supply of nutrients and oxygen which arrives in the centre. The pulp cavity can at times become infected causing severe pain, disrupting normal function of your teeth, then it needs to be removed promptly to prevent the bacteria from spreading into the jaw and bone.


 Root Canal Treatment

Symptoms of Dental Infection

The beginning of a tooth infection will usually produce no pain at all, however should the root cavity come under attack, you will experience a sharp pain running through your mouth, swelling of the gums, tenderness in the region, and extreme sensitivity to ice and spice. If left untreated, the infection from one tooth can spread to other teeth as well.

Root Canal Treatment Procedure

The procedure begins by administering a local anaesthetic to the affected area. Thereafter, the Endodontist removes the infection from the root canal, which would usually mean cleaning out the dead cells of the nerve and blood vessel. Once removed, the Endodontist will clean and shape the inside of the root and seal it with a speciel material then the tooth has to be built up again and restored with many possible ways such as a simple composite filling if tooth wasn’t damaged or an Inlay, Onlay or a Dental Crown.


Re-Rooot Canal Treatment:

Sometimes a tooth that has been treated doesn’t heal properly and can become painful or diseased months or even years after treatment. If your tooth failed to heal or develops new problems, you have a second chance. An additional procedure may be able to support healing and save your tooth. If you have pain or discomfort in a previously treated toot consult your endodontist.

Why do I need another endodontic procedure?

Re-treatment might be caused for a variety of reasons:

  • Narrow or curved canals were not treated during the initial procedure.
  • Complicated canal anatomy went undetected in the first procedure.
  • The placement of the crown or other restoration was delayed following the endodontic treatment.
  • The restoration did not prevent salivary contamination to the inside of the tooth.

In other cases, a new problem can jeopardize a tooth that was successfully treated. For example:

  • New decay can expose the root canal filling material to bacteria, causing a new infection in the tooth.
  • A loose, cracked or broken crown or filling can expose the tooth to new infection.
  • A tooth sustains a fracture.

During retreatment, the endodontist will reopen your tooth and remove the filling materials that were placed in the root canals during the first procedure. The endodontist then carefully examines the tooth, looking for additional canals or new infection. The endodontist then removes any infection, cleans and shapes the canals, and places new filling materials. A new crown or other restoration is placed on the tooth to protect it finally.
