Root Canal

Root canal treatment can save a badly infected or damaged tooth without removing it

The root canal is a common dental procedure which is performed to save the tooth from further infection, swelling and pain.

What is the root canal?

Root canal treatment refers to the cleaning of the canals inside the root of a tooth. In the past, root canal procedures could cause a level of discomfort for patients, however the advanced dentistry techniques used at Chinchilla Dental will leave you pain free.

When do I need a root canal?

Some common symptoms for root canal treatment can include:

• Persistent toothache pain
• Lasting sensitivity
• Swollen or tender gums
• Discoloration or darkening of the tooth

Benefits of root canal treatment

Salvaging your tooth without removal by undergoing root canal treatment can provide:

• Prevention of tooth loss
• Improved aesthetics
• Boosted oral hygiene
• A corrected bite

How is the treatment performed?

Root canal treatment involves drilling a small hole into a decayed tooth and removing the soft centre, known as dental pulp.
The dental pulp is made up of connective tissue, nerves and blood supply, and runs into the roots of the tooth.
