For Treatment of Toothaches

• Root Canal Treatment

Toothaches are most uncomfortable and affect your mood and ability to concentrate. They may even cause you to cancel appointments or call in sick and stay at home instead. Taking the tooth out isn’t the only solution. Come in for a consultation at Mill Street City Dental Centre to learn about your options. We can provide effective management of toothaches by performing Root Canal Treatment, here in the Perth CBD.

Teeth that have been heavily filled, badly decayed or broken may develop a toothache. In some cases, these teeth can still be saved by performing Root Canal Treatment, a proven alternative to extraction. This form of treatment is conservative and allows patients to keep their own teeth in the mouth.

• What Happens Inside Your Tooth

Root canal or endodontic treatment aims to treat the inflamed or infected pulp inside your tooth. Problems such as tooth decay, cracks, and chips can cause inflammation or infection. If left untreated, this will lead to severe pain. The procedure is done by removing the affected pulp and replacing it with a rubber-like material called gutta-percha. Following treatment, we may recommend that a crown be placed on the tooth to protect it from further fractures.

Root Canal Treatment consists of cleaning, shaping and filling the internal aspect of the tooth root. This is usually done over a couple of visits using local anaesthetic. It is pain free although it may require some time spent in the dental chair. Patients sometimes like to bring in an mp3 player to listen to during the procedure.
