At Balmain Dentist, we provide root canal therapy to our patients in Balmain and the surrounding areas. Our experienced dentists are well-equipped to handle even the most complex root canal cases, and we use the latest technology and techniques to ensure a successful outcome.

What is root canal therapy?

Root canal therapy, also known as endodontic therapy, is a dental procedure used to treat an infected or damaged tooth. During a root canal procedure, the infected or damaged pulp is removed from the tooth, and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed to prevent further infection. Root canal therapy can save a damaged or infected tooth from extraction and preserve your natural smile.

Signs you may need root canal therapy:

  • Severe toothache/ Zapping pain
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures
  • Swollen or tender gums
  • Discoloration of the tooth
  • Pain when biting or chewing

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s important to seek dental care right away. Our experienced dentists will diagnose the cause of your symptoms and determine if root canal therapy is the best course of treatment for you.

What to expect during a root canal procedure:

  • First, our dentists will numb the area around the affected tooth to ensure you’re comfortable throughout the procedure.
  • Next, we’ll make a small opening in the top of the tooth to access the infected or damaged pulp.
  • Using specialized tools, we’ll remove the infected or damaged pulp and clean the inside of the tooth to remove any remaining bacteria.
  • Finally, we’ll fill the tooth with a special material and seal it to prevent further infection.

After the procedure, our dentists will provide detailed instructions on how to care for your tooth as it heals. In most cases, you’ll need to schedule a follow-up appointment to have a permanent filling or crown placed on the tooth.

At Balmain Dentist, we’re committed to providing our patients with the best root canal therapy possible. If you’re experiencing tooth pain or other symptoms of a dental issue, don’t hesitate to call us at our Balmain dental practice.
