About Root Canal

Our teeth are meant to last a lifetime, but sometimes damage occurs to a tooth causing painful infection. Root canal treatment can help take away pain and save a tooth. When combined with proper dental care, it is a solution that can help keep your treated tooth strong for many years to come.

Root canal treatment involves removing the damaged, infected pulp from the tooth and cleaning, shaping, filling and sealing the tooth to prevent further infection. Sometimes, treatment can be finalised in a single appointment. By using today’s digital technology, root canal treatment at Bite Dentistry is very successful.

When your root becomes infected you will experience:

  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Swelling around the tooth that can fill with pus or swell to other parts of the face
  • Loss of bone around the root tip
  • Dental abscesses can form

At Bite Dentsitry, we can help you become pain-free

Signs and symptoms:

If your root canal becomes infected, there might not be pain at the beginning. However, as the infection develops, you may start to feel pain and if the infection isn’t treated, it could cause an abscess. This in turn could lead to tooth extraction. Therefore, it’s important to have root canal treatment before further damage takes place.

Signs and symptoms of a tooth infection include:

  • Significant pain when you bite down, or in some cases, pain to the touch
  • Tooth discoloration
