Save your natural teeth with Root Canal Treatment
At Smile Dentist Brisbane, tooth extraction is a last resort. Saving your natural teeth is a priority to us and if you have serious tooth decay, we advise Endodontic Treatment, or Root Canal Treatment.
Endodontics is the field in dentistry which is designed to save diseased teeth. It deals with disorders that affect the tooth pulp. This usually happens because of tooth decay and sometimes due to injury.
If tooth decay spreads deep, it can reach the tooth pulp which can infect it or kill the pulp. When irritation or infection of the tooth pulp occurs, bacteria will thrive inside the pulp and the decayed tooth, without any treatment, the pulp and its surrounding tissues will then swell and cause extreme pain. Eventually, the growing number of bacteria will then infect the bone structure resulting to tooth loss.
Previously, tooth extraction would be a primary option. But, with endodontics, your natural tooth can still be saved. What happens is that your dentist will remove the infected nerve of your tooth. Other cosmetic dentistry procedures can then be recommended, like veneers or crowns, to make the natural tooth look better, giving you a more natural and beautiful smile.
To determine whether you are a candidate for a Root Canal Treatment, your dentist will take digital x-ray images of your tooth. If you are indeed in need of endodontics, your dentist will then schedule a series of appointments for your procedure.
At Smile dentist Brisbane, we will always aim to save your natural tooth and preserve your beautiful smile. We also want to make you feel truly comfortable and at ease throughout the procedure, and even before and after the treatment is complete. That’s why our team has taken every measure to ensure that you know everything there is to know about the treatment.
From beginning to end, your experience at Smile Dentist Brisbane will make you smile bigger, brighter and more confidently than ever. Contact us today for an obligation-free consultation if you are interested in General Dentistry and rediscover yourself.
