Keeping You Smiling
Decay can affect more than the outer layers of your tooth, travelling further if bacteria is left unaddressed. When the inner layers of the tooth, like the pulp, become infected, you may need a root canal. We’re here to help when you need a root canal, protecting your tooth from further complications.
Visit Rockwood Dental for root canal treatment. Our team is here to help protect your teeth and preserve your smile.Book Now
What Is a Root Canal?
A root canal is a treatment to remove infected or injured tissue from inside the tooth’s centre. After removing this tissue, we clean the tooth, shape it, fill it, and seal it to prevent future complications. While this procedure can save your tooth from further damage, you still need to care for it, including daily brushing and flossing.
Never ignore the signs of a tooth infection. Visit us as soon as possible if you experience:
- Persistent discomfort
- Sensitivity to heat & cold
- Tooth discolouration
- Swollen gums
- Discomfort when eating or touching your tooth
- A chipped or cracked tooth
- Loose tooth
The Root Canal Procedure
A root canal involves several steps to treat the infection in your tooth. You can expect the following during your procedure:
- A local anesthetic to freeze the affected area
- Placement of a rubber dam over the tooth to protect against bacteria
- An opening in the tooth to reach the root canal system & damaged pulp
- Removal of the pulp by cleaning & enlarging the root canal system
- The filling & sealing of the canal after completing the cleaning
- The sealing of the tooth’s opening with a temporary or permanent filling
