Initial Consultation

Usually a patient will come to the surgery in pain. Once they book a free consultation to come and see us, we will first of all take a medical history. 

We will take an x-ray of your mouth to determine if the patient needs endodontic treatment and how many visits may be needed.

The dentist will then issue a treatment plan that outlines the cost, frequency of visits and we will address any other questions or concerns you may have.

Procedure

Endodontic treatment is a painless root canal treatment. It is necessary when the nerve in the tooth or the dental pulp is diseased or injured, and is performed by your dentist in order to repair the tooth and provide pain relief.

If not carried out, the patient may end up losing the tooth by having to undergo an extraction.

During a root canal, the damaged or dead nerve tissue will be cleaned out to completely remove any lingering bacteria which is causing the infection. The tooth will then be prepared so that it can be filled with a permanent material called gutta-percha, which is a natural type of rubber.

If necessary, a post may be added to provide additional support. The tooth is then sealed, and a new crown is added to the rebuilt tooth to ensure the aesthetic qualities are maintained. Local anaesthetic is used so this is a painless procedure.

After Care

After Care

You can expect two or three visits for an endodontic treatment. Your first appointment works on fixing the pain you probably have, and that shouldn't take too long.

Once that's settled, your next appointments will treat the root canal.

Expected Outcome
Expected Outcome

Expected Outcome

The primary goal of conventional endodontic treatment is prevention and/or elimination of apical periodontitis for both mature permanent teeth and immature teeth with an open apex.

Besides these goals, the objectives of endodontic treatment of immature teeth include preservation of pulp vitality and often further root maturation.

Robust criteria for outcome assessment are an essential determinant for any measure of treatment success for both mature and immature teeth.
