Root Canal Treatment Melbourne

At Gorgeous Smiles, we believe that everyone deserves to have optimal oral health and to be free of toothache and pain. We believe that preventative treatment is essential in achieving this; however, this is not always possible. Therefore, we offer a range of exceptional services dedicated to dealing with dental problems when they occur – one of these is our root canal treatment.

When a toothache is intense and long-lasting, root canal therapy may be required. This is the process by which an inflamed or infected nerve inside a decayed or diseased tooth is removed, thereby removing the source of the pain. Root canal treatment is designed to save the tooth, stop increases in pain, and prevent any infection spreading to other teeth.

What is Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal treatment is the procedure of cleaning any infection that has spread to the roots, the canals, and the nerves in your mouth. It involves your dentist filling the canals with a biocompatible material to ensure that no further infection will occur in the canals and that no more bacteria is left there to produce new infections.

Symptoms that may require root canal treatment include;

  • A continuous dull throbbing or pain.
  • Swelling along the gum line.
  • Difficulty in biting.
  • Excessive teeth sensitivity to hot, cold, and sweet beverages and food.

These symptoms, left untreated, may result in increased pain and the creation of an abscess.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please contact Gorgeous Smiles immediately as you may require Root canal Melbourne treatment. Let our dentists save your tooth before it is too late.
