Root Canal Treatment in North Sydney
Did you know it’s a myth that root canal treatment causes pain? Any momentary pain or discomfort that a patient may feel is caused by the infection that resides inside a nerve or abscess, not by the procedure itself.
The good news is that, these days, there are numerous wonderful ways to significantly reduce— and in many cases all-but-eliminate—the discomfort that used to force dental patients to have to white-knuckle their way through the procedure. And here at KB Village Dental, we use the latest technology to make your procedure as easy and comfortable as possible!
Root canal therapy effectively removes the inflamed pulp tissue or infection and then the tooth is medicated for a period of time. Later on, when the problem has been deemed successfully eliminated, a root filling is placed to seal the end of the root.
You will quickly feel better if you’ve been suffering, and a final restoration will be placed to restore your tooth’s ability to function like new again.
It’s ok to stop dreading root canal treatment.
Although some people think that removing the problematic tooth is a better solution, Dr. Soulos and the dental profession beg to differ. Removing a healthy tooth can ultimately be more costly, causing functional problems that are generally not as easily fixed. Your teeth were designed to last a lifetime. Saving them whenever and wherever possible is our job.
Root canal treatment helps us do just that.
