Why Root Canal Treatment?

See below the many benefits of receiving root canal therapy

Prevents Tooth Loss

Root canal treatment at our Campbelltown clinic is an effective alternative to extraction, preserving the natural tooth arrangement and saving patients the worry of tooth loss.

Protects Neighbouring Teeth

An accumulation of bacteria in a tooth cavity is a common cause of pulp infection. Without a root canal, the bacteria could spread, causing infection in neighbouring teeth.

Saves Money

Root canal therapy is more cost-efficient than a tooth extraction, which can drain your bank account. As well as the cost of extraction, you may need an implant to fill the gap.

Stops Jawbone Degeneration

Root canal treatment means the infected tooth remains intact, avoiding the need for extraction, and ultimately helping prevent jawbone degeneration.

Visual Appeal

Following root canal therapy, our Campbelltown dentist covers the tooth with a beautiful dental crown to strengthen it and restore its appearance.

Improves Oral and Overall Health

Treating tooth decay and infection with a root canal helps avoid health complications such as lung infections, diabetes and heart disease associated with poor oral health.

What is a Root Canal?

Root canal treatment at our Campbelltown clinic repairs a tooth with significant decay or infection. It’s recommended for patients with a severe toothache, a sensitive tooth, or major dental decay. Root canal therapy is a comfortable procedure performed under local anaesthesia that addresses tooth infections and cavities.

What’s The Process?

Our Campbelltown dentist drills an access hole in the decayed tooth and removes the decayed pulp, bacteria, and nerves from the pulp chamber.

The pulp chamber is cleaned by the dentist and disinfected using tiny surgical instruments called root canal files, to remove the damaged material from the tooth’s opening. 

To prevent infection from recurring, gutta-percha (a rubber-like substance) is used to fill the root canal once it has been cleaned. 

The tooth is then sealed to close the access hole and later covered with a dental crown.
