Endodontic Treatment

anatomy of root canal tooth

Endodontic treatment, commonly referred to as root canal therapy, is needed most when a major infection invades a tooth’s pulp chamber. If left untreated, infection will destroy the nerves and the tooth will eventually die off.

To save the tooth, our experienced dentists remove the infected pulp located within the inside centre of the tooth, which is made up of specialised dental cells, nerves and blood vessels. The tooth is then cleaned and sealed with a filling or crown to further protect against infection.

We strongly encourage you to contact Sydney CBD Dental immediately if you are experiencing any signs of infected tooth pulp:

  • Tooth pain when biting or chewing
  • Sensitivity to hot or cold food and beverages
  • Loosening of your tooth
  • Swelling or tenderness in the gums
  • Constant, unprovoked toothache or pain
  • Secreting puss or an abscess on the suspected tooth
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Cracked or discoloured teeth

In the past, root canals were synonymous with acute pain. The good news is that today new technology allows endodontic treatment to be performed virtually pain-free. If you act fast and receive treatment in time, you could save your tooth and reverse existing damage. Your treated tooth can become fully functional again and last for years to come, providing optimal care and oral hygiene is maintained.
