Dr Sean Farrell delivers sensitive and informative treatment. I am an anxious patient but Dr Farrell helps ease my anxiety by gently preparing and informing me about his every action during an appointment. I have found this approach incredibly helpful and would highly recommend him.

Root Canal Treatment

We offer root canal treatments where the nerve in the tooth is infected and causing problems. Root canal treatments are not meant to be painful despite the myths and stories. Our highly trained dentists use the latest techniques and materials to ensure we attain the highest levels of success, in the most pain-free, comfortable environment possible.

We have a endodontist that use the latest tequnics and equipment to minimise the damage to your natural tooth and give your tooth the best long term chance for success.

Why choose to have your root canal done by an endodontist? 

  • Endodontists use state-of-the-art technology. Examples are operating microscopes, digital imaging, CBCT scan, ultrasonic and Ni- Ti rotary instrumentation to treat their patients quickly and comfortably.
  • Endodontists use microscopes during treatment that give very high magnification. This enables endodontic work to be carried out with a very high degree of accuracy. A further advantage is that high magnification allows endodontists to treat the small internal anatomy of teeth without taking away too much tooth structure, or causing iatrogenic damage thus preserving the strength of your tooth long term.
  • Evidence-based studies suggest that endodontists achieve greater successes due to their experience, expertise and equipment.
  • The overall dental care of patients is improved with an endodontist on the dental team. Their practice is limited to endodontics which allows them to increase the accuracy of the treatment you receive.

When Is Root Canal Treatment Needed?

The crown of the tooth is made up of a hard white enamel layer and a thicker dentine layer. Both these hard layers protect the innermost soft tissues of the tooth called the pulp. The dental pulp contains blood vessels and nerves within and extends from the crown to the tips of the root or roots.

Root canal treatment involves the removal of the pulp tissues from the tooth in the event that it gets infected or inflamed. The pulp can be infected or inflamed due to either deep decay or an extensive restoration that involves the pulp, cracked or fractured tooth due to trauma, excessive wear of enamel and dentine exposing the pulp, and sometimes as a result of severe gum disease.

Signs of pulp damage may include pain, prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold, discoloration of the tooth, swelling, tenderness of the overlying gums or a bad taste in the mouth. On the other hand, there may be no symptoms at all. If pulpal inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can eventually cause pain, swelling and loss of the supporting bone.

What Are The Advantages Of Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment saves teeth that would otherwise have been extracted.

After root canal treatment the tooth is pulp-less i.e. it has no vital tissues within. However, there are vital tissues surrounding the root e.g. the gum, periodontal membrane and supporting bone. A root treated tooth can function normally and can be maintained with routine dental care and oral hygiene measures.

Is Root Canal Treatment Painful?

Root canal treatment procedures are relatively comfortable and often painless as the tooth is anaesthetised during treatment. After treatment, the tooth may be sensitive or tender for a few days due to inflammation of the surrounding tissues. This discomfort can be relieved by taking mild analgesics or painkillers available over the counter at the pharmacy. However, if the pain persists and is severe, or a swelling occurs, you should contact your Dentist.
