Root Canal Treatment in Auckland
Specialized Endodontic Treatment in Titirangi
When the pulp in your tooth has become infected or damaged, you won’t necessarily need to have your tooth removed. Root canal therapy can extract the dead or diseased pulp, reshape the canal, and save your tooth.
If root canal treatment is right for you, our experienced family dentists will take care of the entire procedure. This will remove your pain, ease any swelling and reverse the other nasty symptoms of pulp damage.
Do You Need Root Canal Treatment? Look Out for These Symptoms
Infected dental pulp can be painful and if left untreated, it will become dangerous. In the early stages of a pulp infection, you may experience pain when biting as well as facial swelling. Increased difficulty consuming hot and cold food and drink is also a common symptom.
Because pulp infections will not heal naturally, failure to act could lead to other complications. These include:
- Blood poisoning
- Sickness and fever
- Excruciating pain
- Bone tissue deterioration
What’s involved in Root Canal Treatment?
After you have been formally diagnosed by our West Auckland dentists, we will work quickly to save your tooth. While it is a straightforward procedure, root canal treatments may involve multiple visits to the dentist:
Your dentist applies a local anaesthetic and makes an opening in the pulp chamber
Dead and diseased pulp is removed and the root canals are medicated and irrigated
Temporary fillings may be used to protect your tooth in between procedures.
Following this, the pulp chamber and root canals are cleaned and filled permanently
