Root Canal Therapy Adelaide
Here at The Dental Studio we understand the importance of preserving your natural teeth
This is why we provide root canal or endodontic treatment which can alleviate pain and discomfort through the removal of damaged or dead pulp from the inside of a tooth.
Inflammation or infection of the pulp can be attributed to tooth trauma, decay, cracks or chips in the tooth, or repeated dental procedures which may have caused damage to the tooth itself.
Why do I need root canal therapy?
Root canal therapy is designed to treat infected teeth by replacing the infected area with a filling. The infected tooth may cause inflammation, sensitivity to hot or cold drinks and foods and swelling of the gum.
Infection within a tooth may occur as a result of:
- Decay beneath a deep filling
- Trauma that may have damaged the tooth
- Consistent grinding of the teeth
If left untreated, infection may cause:
- Localised bone loss in the jaw
- Tooth extraction
- Spreading of the infection to surrounding teeth
Root canal therapy is the best alternative to tooth extraction, as it assists in removing infection, whilst prolonging a healthy smile without the pain of tooth extraction.
