Root Canal Treatment Brisbane & Underwood

Dentist at Underwood’s Brisbane root canal treatment – often called simply a root canal – can save a tooth that would otherwise be damaged beyond repair.

Root canal therapy is needed when tooth nerves have become infected. This can happen as a direct result of decay or when a crack in a tooth extends into the pulp – the soft tissue in the central part of a tooth.
A root canal ends the severe toothache that can result from this decay and inflammation and restores the tooth to full function, allowing you to eat the foods you enjoy and smile with confidence.

By eliminating the bacteria that caused the problem, root canal treatment prevents infection spreading to surrounding teeth or other areas of your body such as vital organs.

When you might need Root Canal Treatment

Several problems can result in the need for root canal therapy. The most common are deep decay or a cracked tooth.
Tooth decay resulting in cavities is caused by a build-up of bacteria and plaque, producing acid that eats through dental enamel – the protective, outer layer of a tooth. If the tooth pulp becomes infected, it can’t heal itself.
Cracks that allow bacteria to penetrate a tooth can result in decay and infection such as an abscess, and entire sections of the tooth structure breaking off.

Symptoms of Root Canal Problems

The most common symptom of a root canal problem is pain, which can be moderate to severe.
Other indications of a root canal problem include:
  • Prolonged sensitivity after hot or cold food or drinks
  • Discoloration of the tooth (when the nerve is dying)
  • Sore, swollen gums
  • Gums turning a dark colour
In some cases, there may be no obvious symptoms that you need root canal treatment.

What does Root Canal Treatment Involve?

Root canal treatment is like having a filling that extends into the root of the tooth. Modern treatment techniques and pain control minimise discomfort during the procedure, and many root canals can be completed in a single appointment.
