Root Canal Therapy in North Lakes

Caring and compassionate specialists

Modern root canal therapy is a simple procedure with minimal discomfort which will eradicate the pain of infection and give you a strong and protective crown to keep your tooth healthier for longer.

Do I Need Root Canal Treatment?

Signs that you may need a root canal treatment include pain, prolonged sensitivity to temperatures, tenderness to the touch and discolouration of teeth. A root canal will often be prescribed if decay has infected the nerve in the centre of the tooth or if the root becomes irreversibly damaged from a crack or trauma.

A Painless Root Canal Procedure at Mango Hill

We take pride in saving as many teeth as possible while providing the gentlest root canal procedures we can. Your dentist will begin by numbing the tooth and surrounding tissues to make sure you are comfortable throughout the entire procedure. We will then remove the injured or dead tissue, treat the infection and fill the canal to prevent future damage. At your next visit, once the root canal has healed, your dentist will create a crown or filling to permanently seal your tooth and give it a strong, natural finish.

Stop Tooth Pain Fast with a Root Canal Filling

An infected or dying nerve in your tooth can be very painful but once the affected nerve has been killed, the pain dramatically reduces almost instantly. The root canal treatment then fills the tooth in order to prevent the infection travelling to the jawbone and causing further damage and pain in the future.
