Endodontic Therapy at First Dental Studio

Root Canal Treatment in Brisbane CBD

Root canal treatment Brisbane CBDRoot canal therapy is another common dental procedure we perform here at First Dental Studio. Our team of oral health care professionals are highly experienced within this field and use advanced dental technology to provide precise treatment.

Root canals are performed when an infection has seeped into the nerve of a tooth. The pulp (nerve chamber) must be cleaned out, before the chamber is then sealed off.

Do You Require Root Canal Therapy?

If a tooth requiring root canal therapy is left untreated, infection can spread into the body or to neighbouring teeth, therefore it is important you contact us if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • An abscess along your gum line (resembling a small pimple)
  • Pain when chewing or applying pressure to the area
  • Tooth sensitivity to hot or cold food and beverages
  • A tooth changing in colour

Even if you believe your symptoms are too mild to be an infection requiring root canal therapy, it is important you schedule a consultation with our team to let our professional dentists assess your situation.

What to Expect During Treatment

We always assure our patients that root canal therapy is a relatively simple, straight-forward, and comfortable procedure. Our advanced rotary endodontic instruments not only help to reduce your time spent in the chair, but they also produce superior, precise, and highly successful results.

Before we begin the procedure, we carefully numb the area surrounding the affected tooth. In some circumstances, we may also prescribe an antibiotic to alleviate any residual infection before we begin treatment. To further ensure the comfort of our patient, we also provide a small prop for you to rest your teeth on, ensuring your jaw does not become tired from keeping your mouth open for this period.

The procedure simply involves removing the affected tooth’s nerve and pulp, before cleaning and sealing the area. The tooth will also need a crown placed over it to prevent the non-vital tooth from wearing or chipping away. Thankfully, First Dental Studio offers beautiful white crown options for such cases.
