Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy in Sydney

At Drummoyne Laser Dental, we provide effective root canal therapy for patients across Sydney. Root canal therapy is often required when the soft tissue, or ‘dental pulp’, inside a tooth becomes infected. This may occur as a result of trauma, disease or decay, resulting in a severe toothache. If you suffer a broken tooth or have toothache, it’s heavily advisable to contact your dentist immediately in order to avoid further damage.

Endodontic treatment

Endodontics is an area of dentistry that focusses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of dental pulp disorders. Root canal therapy is designed to save diseased or injured teeth and involves removing the infected pulp/nerve from the tooth.

Root canal treatment may be necessary if a tooth is suffering from:

  • Deep decay that has exposed and contaminated the pulp
  • Extreme sensitivity that is not resolved by other conservative treatment
  • Irreversible pulpitis (inflammation of the pulp) and/or internal resorption
  • Non-vitality, which can be caused by various reasons, such as trauma, etc.
In years gone by, diseased or infected teeth would have simply been removed. Thankfully, due to new technologies, modern dental patients have many more treatment options available to them. This means that every preventative measure possible can be taken to safeguard your smile, so you can keep your natural teeth for life.
