Specialist Endodontics

The best endodontic outcomes occur when informed patients receive cutting-edge endodontic care in a professional, and caring atmosphere. We can provide that for you!

What is an Endodontist?

An endodontist is a dentist who specialises in root canal therapy. A root canal, or endodontic therapy, is a dental operation that removes diseased tissue from the tooth’s root canal.

Our endodontists are specialists in tooth preservation, dedicated to assisting you in maintaining your natural smile for life. Their extensive training in specific procedures, and cutting-edge technology ensure that you receive the finest quality treatment and the best possible outcome—preserving your original teeth!

Endodontists’ further training focuses on detecting tooth discomfort, carrying out root canal therapy, and performing other operations involving the tooth’s internal health. Endodontists possess extensive surgical and non-surgical abilities that qualify them to handle both ordinary and difficult cases.

Our endodontists provide care that is backed up by extensive instruction on how to execute the absolute best endodontics. Endodontic therapy frequently salvages a diseased tooth, explaining why endodontists proudly refer to themselves as “specialists in saving teeth”.

We are still prioritising patients who have dental emergencies or problems, but are now able to see patients for routine examinations as well. Prevention has always been at the heart of our practice’s philosophy, and this continues to be the case. We therefore advise our patients to contact us to arrange their routine examinations (if they are due), and similarly we encourage patients to book an appointment with our fantastic hygienists if required.

How Do I Know if I Need the Services of an Endodontist?

If you are suffering from tooth discomfort, have recently sustained a dental injury, or your tooth is sensitive to hot or cold, you may consider scheduling an appointment with our endodontist.

What is a Root Canal Treatment?

A root canal treatment is typically performed by an endodontist to preserve the function and integrity of your original teeth. This procedure is required if the pulp, which is made up of nerves and blood vessels, has gotten infected and injured. The endodontist must extract the unhealthy roots and thoroughly clean and disinfect it. After that, the endodontist plugs and seals the injured roots to avoid recurring infection. The endodontist completes the restoration of your tooth by covering it with a dental crown.

Do Root Canal Treatments Hurt?

Root canal treatment is frequently viewed as an unpleasant operation. This is far from reality. Our dentists use anaesthesia and laser technologies to provide a pain-free treatment. Root canal treatment is actually preferable than having your teeth extracted due to decay, injury or infection.

Our endodontists also employ sophisticated techniques to keep patients completely comfortable throughout the root canal procedure. They are specialists in administering anaesthesia, particularly to patients who have historically had difficulty becoming and remaining numb. Following a root canal treatment, patients will have tooth pain relief as the pulp infection or inflammation resolves.

What are the Benefits of a Root Canal Treatment?

These are some of the benefits following endodontic treatment:

Preserving Your Tooth

The goal of this therapy is to keep your tooth from being extracted. This prevents you from suffering the effects of an oral infection. Other dental operations, such as tooth extraction, can result in a gap in the gums, which may require a dental implant to replace it. No matter how strong and solid a dental replacement is, it is no match for your natural tooth. As a result, you are better off undergoing the treatment and preserving your natural tooth.

Relieving Pain

The comfort provided by the root canal surgery is preferable than living with the agony caused by decay or infection. If you have infected tooth roots, it is more likely to cause throbbing pain. You do not want to lose your teeth as a result of this chronic discomfort. As a result, it is best to go through this treatment in order to break free from pain and suffering.

Stopping and Reversing Tooth Infection

By going through root canal treatment, you can stop and reverse your tooth infection and avoid spreading it from your tooth to other regions of your mouth, including your gums. Bacteria and plaque accumulation can even travel to the sinuses, brain, lungs and heart, which can have severe repercussions. This is the primary reason why root canal treatment is essential to your health.

What Materials and Equipment Will Endodontists Use During the Procedure?

Our endodontists use materials and leading technologies that are specifically intended to make treatment more pleasant and effective. They use a tiny piece of plastic or rubber, called a dental dam, to separate the tooth from the rest of your mouth during treatment. Endodontists can obtain comprehensive images of small tooth structure using digital radiography and 3-D imaging to better visualise the root canals and any associated infections. Endodontists utilise dental operating microscopes to have a clearer view of the root canals and treat them properly.
