Root Canals at DHCA
Our all-in-one dental practice also provides superior root canal therapy, a procedure that we complete right here in our Collins Street practice. While some patients may become apprehensive about root canal therapy, our dental health care professionals assure you that it is a fairly quick and straight-forward process occurring over just two appointments. The comfort of our patients is always our priority, so we put a number of measures in place to ensure they remain as pain-free and at ease as possible. Root canal therapy involves removing the affected tooth’s nerve and pulp, before cleaning and sealing the area to prevent further discomfort. By doing this, we aim to save the patient’s tooth, as well as to prevent the surrounding tissue from becoming infected.
Are You a Candidate for Root Canal Therapy?
If you’re experiencing any of the following dental concerns, you may be a candidate for root canal therapy:
- Severe pain and discomfort
- A cavity that has extended into the nerve
- A potential abscess
- Previous trauma to the tooth which has resulted in excessive decay or loss of structure
The Rotary Endodontic Technique
Root canal therapy has come a long way in the past, with patients now able to undergo treatment which is quick and relatively comfortable. At Dental Health Care Associates, however, we take this one step further, utilising Rotary Endodontics for the most superior root canals available.
Rotary Endodontics is a procedure which uses a flexible, highly-accurate, power-driven instrument specifically developed for root canal therapy. Not only does this tool allow more accurate cleaning and shaping of the root canal, but it also dramatically reduces post-operative sensitivity and discomfort. Root canals can also be completed in a quicker time frame, helping patients to spend less time in the dental chair undergoing treatment.
