Root Canal Therapy In Ryde – Helping to Preserve Your Smile

Root canal therapy in Ryde sounds a bit daunting which is why we want to assure our patients from the start that there really is nothing to be afraid of.

What is a root canal?

The root of a tooth (canal) contains a mixture of blood vessels and nerves which collectively is known as pulp. When this gets diseased it may die off or alternatively, it can cause a toothache or an abscess to form. In the past, you may have faced tooth extraction and tooth loss, but fortunately, at Top Health Dental we can save your tooth with root canal therapy in Ryde.

What causes the pulp to become diseased?

Often when faced with root canal treatment, Ryde patients ask how the pulp could have got infected. There are several reasons for this including a chipped or cracked tooth, tooth decay, and tooth trauma. Soreness or swelling of the gums, pain, and a discoloured tooth are all signs that you may be a candidate for root canal therapy.

Preserves bite function

As dentists, we wouldn’t be doing our job properly if we simply extracted the infected tooth. A missing tooth can cause the rest of your teeth to shift position and move towards the gap that’s left behind causing misalignment. By using root canal treatment we can preserve both your smile and your bite function.

What to expect during root canal treatment

Before starting the procedure our dentist will make sure you’re comfortable. Then the infected pulp is removed and the root canal is thoroughly cleaned before sealing it off. Depending on the complexity of your case, several dental visits may be required. If your pulp is infected then we’ll give you antibiotics to clear it. Finally, we’ll seal the tooth with a crown to prevent bacteria from entering and infection from recurring.
