Root Canal Treatment

Are you looking for a trusted and affordable dentist in Auckland for a root canal treatment? You’ve arrived at the right place.

First, let’s understand a bit more about what is involved in a root canal treatment.

A badly decayed or infected tooth can cause extraordinary pain and needs to be dealt with immediately, often through a root canal procedure.

Root canal treatment is performed when the tooth pulp has become infected or when the infection has spread to the roots or jawbone. Normally a tooth can recover from a mild or occasional irritation of the pulp. If the irritation continues, it can lead to an irreversible infection, and the tooth may become partially or completely gangrenous. A gangrenous tooth doesn’t have normal blood circulation or nerves. It may not be an option if the tooth is too badly damaged.

Root canal treatment essentially involves the removal of the nerve and pulp within the affected tooth before cleaning and re-sealing said tooth. Modern techniques and technology have helped root canals evolve into relatively comfortable treatments that often require no more than one or two trips to the dentist. Dental sedation is available for those who’ve had a bad experience in the past or fear dentists and associated procedures.

If you’re seeking relief from pain, you will typically be required to undergo a dental X-Ray based on which a dentist can assess the level of damage and infection. The course of treatment is decided based on this assessment.

Many people tend to put off a root canal treatment, owing either to the rising cost of the procedure across New Zealand or the fear of pain. However, delaying the procedure only causes increased damage to the tooth, making a root canal treatment more difficult.
