The process involved for Melbourne root canal treatment, which is also called endodontic treatment, involves the removal of your tooth pulp which is made up of blood vessels and nerves. The inside of the tooth is then cleaned and sealed. You will be required to come back for a crown as the tooth is only filled with a temporary filling.
It will depend on the quality of your tooth as to whether root canal treatment at Hawthorn East Dental is the best option or if removal of your tooth is necessary. If we do need to remove the tooth then we will consult with you on the next best option.
A root canal procedure can sound serious and painful however you’ll be nicely surprised to learn that you’re probably in more pain now than when you go through the procedure. It’s similar to having a tooth filling and with our modern technology, anesthetics, and expertise, any pain during and after root canal procedures is minimal.
Some people report feeling a little tender after a root canal which can be attributed to the tissue around the gums being inflamed. If you are experiencing pain after a few days then we recommend you contact us to discuss your symptoms.
How do you know if you need Root Canal Treatment Melbourne?
Sometimes there are no symptoms and a dental check-up can help to identify if there is an unhealthy tooth. There are other indications that dental work needs to be done, such as discoloration of a tooth, swelling and sensitivity of the gum around the tooth and pain if pressure is put on a tooth or when eating. In these cases, contact us immediately to ensure it is assessed before you experience further pain.
