Root Canal Therapy
Root Canal Treatment
Our skilled team can tackle even the most complicated of root canal cases. It’s a simple and straightforward treatment, with a high success rate of 80-90 per cent in eliminating inflammation and inflection at the root of the tooth.
Need to know:
Our microscopes allow us to see even the smallest particles of tooth and root structure, with magnification up to 20 times more accurate than the human eye. This enables us to be extremely precise, while ozone and lasers are used to disinfect the roots and safely remove bacteria.
Duration: Root canal treatments take approximately three one-hour appointments, however this can vary depending on your unique case.
If you think root canals can be painful, you’re not alone. However, root canal therapy should be a painless procedure – as just as fillings and crowns are.
We use computer-controlled anesthetic, which detects tissue pressure with precision. It slowly releases a numbing solution and avoids the painful sting of injections and numb lips. We also have other anesthetic options available, should you require them.
During your root canal treatment, we carefully remove the infected pulp inside the tooth. The area is gently but thoroughly cleaned and shaped in preparation for the root filling material, which is then placed to prevent reinfection. Finally, your dentist will fill and seal the tooth.
Several appointments are needed for the successful completion of root canal treatments. However we aim to minimise time in the chair with each visit, and we’ll take extra care to make sure your experience is as comfortable as possible.

Root canal Sydney
Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic (endo- “inside”, odont- “tooth”) treatment, is a procedure where the dentist removes an infected or dead nerve tissue in a tooth to treat an abscess. Root canal therapy not only gets you out of pain but also keeps you out of pain.
The dental pulp is the soft centre of the tooth that contains nerves and blood vessels. It is a connective tissue that extends to the bottom of the tooth through the canals and is responsible for regulating the growth and development of the tooth during childhood. Also, it is responsible for providing oxygen, nutrients, dentin formation and sensory function. When the tooth is fully formed, nutrition comes from the surrounding jaw bone and associated tissues.
Root canal pain symptoms
This dental pulp can be damaged or dead. Depending on the cause, the damage to the pulp can be so severe that the nerve will gradually die. There are several reasons for this: untreated decay, trauma, bruxism, cracked tooth, or irritation. Usually, people experience severe pain when biting and chewing, sensitivity to cold and heat, darkening of the tooth, swollen and tender gums, facial swelling, or loose teeth. Other people may have damaged or dead pulp and have no root canal symptoms. If this is your case, dentists may discover that you need root canal therapy from X-rays or if the gum is swelling near the affected tooth. Hence the importance of regular visits to the dentist.
