Is Root-Canal Treatment Painful?
The Root Canal Treatment is pain-free, we will anaesthetise the tooth and surrounding areas before we do any treatment on the tooth. People often associate Root Canal Treatment with pain because the infection that causes the toothache can indeed be very painful. Root Canal Treatment to a tooth actually brings great relief to those symptoms, our patients are always glad once the initial phase of a Root Canal has been completed because they can get back to their day-to-day life, they have often been in such pain that they cannot sleep, eat or work! We won’t start working on your tooth until we are sure that we have it totally anaesthetised.
What Are Some Signs I May Need Root Canal Treatment?
Aching/throbbing pain which is unprovoked or when provoked by cold lasts for minutes or more. Often this pain leaves patients unable to sleep.
Pain on biting, usually combined with other symptoms
You know you have deep decay or a deep filling in the suspect tooth.
Pain to heat, such as tea/coffee, which lasts for more than 10 secs.
Recent trauma to the affected tooth. These teeth may discolour in the days or weeks after the incident
If you suspect you have a toothache or need a root please consult with us.

What happens after treatment?
When your root canal therapy has been completed, your restorative dentist will decide on what type of restoration is necessary to protect your tooth- Inlay/Onlay/Crown. The tooth that had the root canal procedure performed on can be brushed and flossed just as it was a natural tooth.
A treated tooth, restored with a filling or crown, often lasts for the rest of your life.
