Root Canal treatment relieves pain and saves natural tooth

Keysborough Dental Surgery offers first-rate root canal treatment

Root canal treatment aims to treat disorders of the nerve inside the tooth. The disorder of the nerve is usually caused by bacterial irritation from dental decay, previous large and deep filling or crown, or trauma to the tooth.

Root canal treatment is carried out when the decay in the tooth is severe and has reached the tooth pulp- the centre of the tooth, exposing the living and connective tissues.

Our treatment involves removing the inflamed or infected pulp inside of the tooth and carefully cleaning and disinfecting it. The infected tooth is then sealed with a rubber-like material and the tooth restored with a crown or filling for protection.

In most cases, a customised crown is required after root canal therapy to strengthen the tooth for longevity.

The modern endodontic treatment at Keysborough Dental Surgery makes the process simple yet effective. We try our best to make it a comfortable experience for you.

Root canal treatment is a measure to save the natural tooth. This is because the natural set of teeth are:

  • Effective in chewing, biting and sensation
  • Appear natural
  • Protects other teeth from excessive wear or strain
