‘Where Pain Ends and Smiles Begin’

Root canal therapy is often the last chance to save an infected tooth. We aim to make it no scarier than a simple filling.

This highly specialised branch of dentistry often has a bad reputation. However, at Silk Dental, we aim to make root canal therapy a simple and stress-free experience.

How does the root canal treatment work?

Root canal treatment is used to treat a tooth that has been infected with bacteria or damaged by deep decay. Your dentist will expose the dental pulp and use small tools to remove any infected material. The tooth root is then filled and capped with a crown to help strengthen and protect it.

Do I need a root canal treatment?

You may need root canal therapy if you have any of the following symptoms:

  • Toothache
  • Extreme sensitivity to hot or cold food and drink
  • Pain when biting
  • Discolouration
  • Swelling

A visit to the dentist will confirm if you require root canal treatment or another treatment.

Does a root canal hurt?

With adequate anaesthesia, the procedure of a root canal does not hurt.  The dentist will ensure you are properly numb prior to the procedure and ensure you are comfortable throughout your treatment. If you are particularly nervous about the procedure, we can offer conscious IV sedation to help you feel more relaxed.
