What is a Root Canal Treatment?

heidelberg root canal treatment

Root Canal Treatment is a procedure used by dentists to save an essentially “dead” tooth that died due to dental decay or injury. It involves removing infected or damaged pulp and cleaning, shaping, and sealing the empty root canals within a tooth.

It is essential to save the damaged tooth and prevent the spread of infection, allowing patients to keep their natural tooth and maintain good oral health.

What To Expect Before, During, and After a Root Canal?

Before Root Canal Treatment

BlueSpa Dental prides itself with keeping our patients relaxed and informed prior, during, and after any dental procedure. Prior to your root canal treatment in Heidelberg, your dentist will examine your tooth, take X-rays, and diagnose the issue that’s causing the need for treatment.

You will be informed about the procedure, including the number of visits required and the cost, and be given the opportunity to ask questions and discuss any concerns you may have.

BlueSpa Dental offers flexible payment plans to our patients.

During Root Canal Treatment

On the day of your procedure, you will be given a local anaesthetic to numb the area around the tooth. Our dentist will then use a rubber dam to isolate the tooth and keep it clean and dry during the procedure.

Once numbed and set up, an opening will be made through the top of the tooth to access the pulp. The infected or damaged pulp will be removed, and the root canal system will be cleaned and shaped.

A temporary filling will be placed in the opening, and the tooth will be protected with a temporary crown until the permanent restoration can be completed.

After Root Canal Treatment

After your treatment, you may experience some discomfort or sensitivity for a few days. This is normal and can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications.

We advise you to follow our dentists’ instructions for caring for the treated tooth, including avoiding hard and crunchy foods and maintaining good oral hygiene. You will be given a schedule for your permanent restoration, such as a crown, placed over the treated tooth.

The dentist is never a pleasant experience, but Dr. Walker really put me at ease. All the staff are friendly and professional, and are highly recommended. I was given a dental plan, and there was no pressure to book appointments. they play calming music through the facility, and it is the best dentist I have ever visited.

Genuine service, they were really helpful, made the time to answer all my questions and concerns and provided clear and detailed advice. For the teeth cleaning service they were patient and made sure I was comfortable at all times as you can imagine it’s a little scary getting your teeth cleaned, I will definitely return for my next appointment.

I have been a patient at this dentist for over 10 years and I even though I have moved away from Southbank where it was convenient I still do not mind the travel to see my usual Dentist. Very professional, quick and painless. I totally recommend getting your teeth cleaned, checked and explained to you with Blue Spa Dental.
