Restore Dental Health With Root Canals

Tooth decay can sometimes lead to damage that extends to the nerve of the tooth. In such cases, a root canal procedure is recommended. During a root canal, the infected or damaged nerve is carefully removed, and the tooth is thoroughly cleaned and sealed to prevent further deterioration.

Saving Damaged Teeth, Preventing Extraction

At Herriott Street Dental, we offer root canal treatment to save teeth that have suffered damage and to avoid the need for extraction. If you are experiencing tooth pain or sensitivity, it’s crucial to seek treatment promptly to prevent further harm and potential tooth loss.

The Root Canal Procedure

Here’s what you can expect during a root canal treatment at our Perth dental clinic:

Assessment: The dentist will initially assess the extent of the damage to determine if a simple filling can suffice or if a root canal is necessary.

Root Canal: If a root canal is recommended, the dentist will carefully remove the infected nerve from within the tooth. The tooth’s chambers are then sealed with a specialized substance.

Crown Recommendation: After a root canal, the tooth may become brittle and susceptible to breakage. To safeguard the tooth’s strength and function, a crown is often recommended.

Protecting Your Restored Tooth: Following a root canal, the tooth can become fragile and prone to breakage. If this occurs, it may necessitate extraction. However, opting for a full crown can effectively protect the tooth that has undergone a root canal procedure. Failing to restore the tooth with a crown may lead to additional complications.

Collaborative Care for Optimal Results: Most root canals can be performed by a general dentist, but complex cases may be referred to an endodontic specialist. After the root canal treatment, you will return to your regular dentist for the final restorative procedures.
