Frequently Asked Questions

Root canal is needed when the pulp (the soft tissue inside the tooth) becomes inflamed or infected as a result of trauma or injury to the tooth, deep decay, big filling, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, or a cracked or chipped tooth.

If left untreated, the infection will spread resulting in the tooth having to be removed.

We will make you feel comfortable and relaxed before, during and after the procedure, so don’t be afraid to get your tooth treated.

Root canal treatment usually requires two appointments. At the first appointment, we numb the area so that the procedure is comfortable. We remove the infection in the root of your tooth and make sure the remaining tooth is healthy and stable. The root canal is cleaned and shaped and a temporary filling is placed.

In your second appointment, the temporary filling is removed and we check that the infection has cleared before filling the tooth permanently.

A crown may the very last step in the procedure, which will give this tooth added strength and protection, restoring the tooth function and giving you a healthy and natural smile.

Root canal treatment by our dentists will not only free you from pain but will also address infections in your teeth immediately. Most importantly, it saves teeth that otherwise would have to be extracted.

Once the tooth has been restored, you can still bite, chew and eat as normal.

You may require root canal treatment if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Dull ache or severe pain
  • Abscess (area where pus collects)
  • Prolonged sensitive tooth (especially to hot or cold)
  • Tenderness when biting or eating
  • Swelling of your face
  • Severe bad taste in your mouth
  • Tooth darkens in colour

You may also be completely unaware that you have an infected tooth, as you may not be experiencing any symptoms. An x-ray will show any infection.

An infected tooth will not heal by itself and as it gets worse, it will continue to be a source of infection that brings down your immune system.

After completing your root canal treatment, you may feel some discomfort for a few days. This is normal and we may advise pain relief medication or antibiotics to help eliminate any remaining infection.

Your tooth may darken after treatment however, there are several treatments available to restore the tooth to its natural appearance including, internal tooth bleaching, veneers or crowns.

If a crown has been advised, it is not advisable to eat directly on the root filled tooth until the crown has been placed, as this may cause the tooth to break. The longer you wait to complete the final restoration the more likely bacteria will re-infect the tooth, requiring root canal treatment to be performed all over again.

If you do not have root canal treatment, you can choose to have the infected tooth extracted or removed. The space caused by the missing tooth however, may cause the surrounding teeth to shift into that space. These shifted teeth are harder to clean, making them more susceptible to gum disease, decay or even additional tooth loss.

If you do elect to have the tooth removed the best option would be to replace it with one of the following options: Dental Implants, Bridges, Partial Dentures

We understand that price is an important consideration factor. Like any dental treatment, the cost of root canal treatment is dependant on which tooth needs treatment and how long your treatment will take to complete. Generally, front teeth have a single root canal, whereas back teeth have multiple roots and multiple root canals, making them more difficult and time consuming to treat.

When you come to see us for your first consultation, we will determine the most appropriate treatment for you and provide you with a treatment plan and cost.
