Root Canal Treatment

Let Us Call You to Book an Appointment

The Root canal treatment is a procedure that treats infected tissue of the nerve (also known as pulp) of teeth.

Traditionally if the nerve tissue of a tooth became infected, the whole tooth would have to be extracted. Root canal treatment can save a tooth from extraction by simply removing the infected nerve.

Factors contributing to a need for root canal therapy include:

  • Toothache and sensitivity
  • Tenderness when chewing
  • Trauma to the tooth or jaw
  • Deep tooth decay
  • Severe gum disease

If you experience any of these symptoms, please contact us to book an appointment with one of Perth dentists, so we can address these issues as soon as possible.

The Root Canal Procedure

Contrary to popular belief, root canal therapy should not cause any more discomfort than that of a normal dental filling procedure, as it is performed under local anaesthetic to minimise any sensations of pain.

  • Initially, a hole is carefully drilled into the crown of the infected tooth.
  • We then gently remove the infected nerve tissue (or pulp), leaving the natural tooth structure in tact.
  • The tooth is then permanently sealed, and may be re-enforced with a porcelain crown.
