Dentists and patients consider root canal treatment as the smartest option to save a damaged or decayed tooth. The treatment option helps you to use your damaged natural tooth for life with the proper cleaning of root canals and the permanent closing of the cavity with fillings.
We provide the state-of-the-art root canal treatment in Port Melbourne to help our patients to save their natural teeth. At Bay Street Dental Group, we use advanced tools and equipment to ensure an effective and painless root canal treatment experience for our patients.
Who Can Have A Root Canal?
Root canal treatment is a recommended option for people who have teeth with an infected pulp chamber. The pulp chamber is an interior layer of a tooth that contains blood vessels, connective tissue, and nerves to help the tooth in its growth and development.
The infected pulp can lead to tooth loss if not removed on time. If you experience any of the following symptoms, you should consult with the dentist to confirm pulp infection and go for the root canal treatment:
- Pain when biting or chewing
- Severe tooth pain
- Heightened sensitivity to cold and heat
- Facial swelling
- Persistent bad breath
As a leading dental clinic that provides root canal treatment in Port Melbourne, we request you to seek immediate dental assistance to save your tooth.
The Treatment Procedure
Our dentist will examine your teeth and confirm the need for a root canal treatment to address infected pulp. The dentist will numb your teeth to avoid any pain during the treatment procedure. They will also install a small shield around the tooth to make it isolated, clean, and dry during the treatment process.
Our dentist will then make an access cavity into the pulp chamber and anti-infection medication is placed inside the chamber to kill bacteria and stop infection. They will remove infected pulp from the pulp chamber to relieve you from the tooth pain.
The dentist will then clean and shape your root canal to fill and seal your teeth. Sometimes, our dentists will also install a crown over your tooth to make it stronger and compact. The crown instalment is often necessary for weakened teeth.
