Root Canal Treatment

At Dental Boutique, we invest in state of the art technology performing root canal treatments predictably and successfully. Depending on the severity of the infection, root canal treatment can be carried out between 1-3 visits.

Endodontic Treatment, or more commonly known as a “Root Canal Treatment”, is a procedure aimed at treating an “Infected Tooth” with a dead or dying nerve.


How Is A Root Canal Treatment Performed?

If such a tooth is left unattended it can cause severe discomfort or health risks due to infection. The common causes of a root canal infection are:

  • Deep decay
  • Trauma to the tooth
  • Crack or chip in the tooth
  • Occasionally, the cause may be unknown

Your dentist will first establish whether you need a root canal or an extraction. If a root canal is needed the treatment will continue as follows; a small hole is drilled in the tooth (on the top of the tooth for molars and at the back for front teeth) to access the root canal/ canals of the tooth/ teeth – This is all performed under local anaesthesia to provide a gentle and virtually pain-free experience.

The dentists use specialised endodontic instruments commonly known as dental files, placed in the root canal chamber to remove the infected nerve space. The root chamber is thoroughly cleaned out and disinfected, before an antibiotic solution is placed inside the nerve chamber to help eradicate any remaining bacteria.

The root chamber is then filled in with a thick rubbery material called gutter percha to minimise the chance of any future reinfection. And then the tooth is sealed off with two layers of filling materials to ensure a proper seal, to prevent leakages and ensure the success of your root canal treatment.

We recommend finalising the root canal treated with a crown as they tend to become brittle over time and can be subject to fracture due to loss of blood supply to the tooth.
