    Root Canal Therapy

    Root canal therapy is a common dental procedure that is used to treat infections in the tooth. The first step of the procedure is to remove the infected tissue from the tooth. Once the infection has been removed, the tooth is then sealed and filled with a special material.

    Root canal therapy is usually successful in treating infections and saving teeth. However, if the infection is left untreated, it can spread to other parts of the mouth and cause more serious problems.

    Gisborne Dentist offers root canal therapy as part of our comprehensive dental care services. Our experienced dentists will work diligently to ensure that your infection is removed and your tooth is saved. Contact us today to schedule an appointment for root canal therapy.

    Understanding Root Canal Treatment Procedure

    Our approach begins with numbing the area around the tooth, followed by creating a small opening to access the pulp chamber. Subsequently, we delicately remove the damaged tissue and meticulously clean the inside of the tooth.

    The process concludes with filling the tooth and sealing it to prevent further damage. With proper care, your tooth is poised to remain strong and healthy for years to come.

    What Happens After Root Canal Treatment?

    Root canal treatment is a common dental procedure that is used to save a tooth that has been damaged by decay or infection. The procedure involves removing the damaged tissue from inside the tooth and then sealing the tooth to prevent further damage.

    In most cases, root canal treatment is successful and the tooth can be saved. However, there are some risks associated with the procedure. There is a small chance that the infection will spread to surrounding teeth or that the root canal will become reinfected.

    In addition, root canal treatment can sometimes weaken the tooth, making it more susceptible to breakage. Despite these risks, root canal treatment is often the best option for saving a damaged tooth. With proper care, most teeth that have undergone root canal treatment can last a lifetime.

    After the procedure is complete, it is important to have a permanent restoration, such as a crown, placed on the tooth to protect it from breakage. In most cases, the tooth will function just like any other tooth after the treatment is complete. However, it is important to see your dentist regularly and to practice good oral hygiene habits to help ensure that the root canal does not become infected again.

    From the moment my nervous little self entered after many years of no dental work due to trauma. I felt calm and in control of this situation. Josh was nothing but understanding and caring of my needs and concerns. Once my comprehensive exam was complete i was then blessed with an amazing hygienist Trish who was also very caring and understanding of my anxiety and talked me through every step she took, the way they both interacted with myself was truly an amazing experience.
