While the thought of a root canal treatment can cause stress and anxiety, the procedure isn’t as bad as you may think – especially when it’s performed by skilled and experienced dentist. At Dentist on Waverley, we provide a soothing, stress-free environment for all treatments. Located in Wheelers hill / Glen Waverley, our root canal treatment provides patients with the much-needed relief from debilitating tooth pain.
In most cases, a root canal treatment is needed when the nerve of a tooth in the root canal becomes infected or diseased (this is often caused by decay, fracture and tooth injury). When bacteria enter the inside of the nerve, this can lead to severe pain, inflammation, and even infection. In order to save your tooth, a root canal treatment must be performed.
The treatment itself is performed across three appointments. For the comfort of our patients, we don’t begin until the tooth has been fully anaesthetised. This ensures that you won’t feel anything more than you do during a standard filling.
We begin by completely removing the nerve that’s infected. Next, we clean the canals, disinfecting and shaping them so they can be sealed with a filling material. The shape of the tooth is then restored with either a filling or crown. Once complete, the tooth will be protected against future infection.
