Root Canal Treatment Gold Coast
Our teeth are much more complex and intricate than one might consider at first glance of the white, little pearls. At the center of a tooth, there is a sensitive tissue called “pulp”, sitting right at the root canal. This tissue is made up of nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue. It provides nutrients to the tooth and is central to its sense of feeling.
Quite a number of factors may infect or damage the pulp beyond our own self-restorative capabilities. These commonly include significant trauma, tooth decay, chips, cracks or deep feelings. In these cases, Root Canal Treatment Gold Coast is necessary in order to bring the teeth back to full working condition.
Below, we list you the most common symptoms you might experience when suffering from a pulp condition.
• Heightened Sensitivity to Heat & Cold• Persistent Bad Breath• Swelling of Lymph Nodes in the Neck• Facial Swelling• Swelling and Tenderness in the Nearby Gums• A Persistent or a recurring pimple on the Gums• Discoloration or Darkening of the Tooth• Throbbing Toothache• Pain When Chewing or Biting
If you experience one or more of the aforementioned symptoms, it is very likely you suffer from a tooth abscess – and you would do well to set up an appointment with your nearest dentist to undergo a dental examination. Left untreated, the condition may spread throughout the jaw and face of the patient, making treatment much more difficult.
Procedure Root Canal Treatment Gold Coast
The procedure is well within the reach our specialists. In essence, it involves the removal of damaged or infected pulp and a thorough cleaning of the canals. Afterwards, the crown of the tooth is filled with a temporary material that acts as a filler. We promise you, this is much less intimidating than it might first sound. The treatment will go so smoothly you will hardly believe it happened. Far from causing pain – local anesthesia will be applied to ensure it doesn’t – it will, in fact, remove any existing discomfort and shield you from future trouble. It is safe, effective and will bring back your most attractive smile.
Make sure you note that root canal treatment is usually carried out in two or more visits. In case there is a significant loss of tooth structure, we will recommend a crown to be fitted over the injured tooth.
