Endodontics (Root Canal Treatment)
The symptoms of an infected tooth are unmistakable, as they are synonymous with acute pain. The good news is that nowadays, endodontic treatment can be very effective in treating an infected tooth, instead of extraction.
What is an endodontic treatment?
Endodontic treatment is also known as root canal therapy. This is required when a major infection goes deeply into the tooth’s pulp-filled chamber. If the infected tooth is left untreated, it will eventually die and cause pain.
How does the procedure work?
An endodontic procedure at Elite Dental involves removing the infected pulp in the centre of the tooth. After this your dentist will clean and seal the tooth with a filling or crown to protect the tooth against infection.
Benefits of endodontic treatment
- Instead of tooth extraction, you can save the tooth and return it to functionality.
- Following an endodontic treatment, a tooth that is given proper care can last for many years.
Infected tooth pulp is not something you should ignore. If you do experience strong symptoms of pain, call Elite Dental immediately on 02 9807 1682 or complete the enquiry form for a consultation.
