What Is A Root Canal Treatment And Why Is It Needed?

A root canal Brisbane treatment is needed when a hole is drilled into a decayed or damaged tooth to remove the dental pulp which is the tooth’s soft centre. The dental pulp is formed through tissue, nerves, and blood supply which extends to the roots of the tooth.

How effective is root canal treatment?

By getting a root canal treatment in Brisbane, you can save a badly infected or damaged tooth. Some reasons that your tooth may be damaged could include extensive decay, repeated dental work, wear and tear over time, gum disease, cracked fillings or even an injury to the tooth.

If for any of these reasons, the dental pulp in your tooth becomes infected or damaged, then bacteria can start to multiply inside the tooth – leading to increased infection or the formation of a cyst filled with puss that forms at the end of the tooth’s root. Hence, for instances like these, it’s important to get the best root canal treatment you can from a Brisbane root canal specialist.

By attempting to save your natural tooth, you’ll be saving yourself from other complicated procedures and could potentially restore the workings of your teeth. When you need a root canal treatment in Brisbane from a team of professionals, choose Hashtag Dentist to get the job done by an expert Brisbane root canal specialist to help you save your tooth.

Endodontic – Dental Root Canal Treatment Procedure

At Hashtag Dentist, we’re experts in the dental field and therefore, our Endodontic – Dental Root Canal Treatment in Brisbane is simple and effective.

Before we begin the Endodontic Treatment, our Brisbane root canal dentists will take an x-ray of the tooth to determine the shape of the root canal and whether there is an infection. Once this is all done, you will then be given a local anaesthetic that will numb the area around the tooth before we drill a hole into your tooth to remove the dental pulp.

Endodontic treatment in Brisbane can take several appointments as we need to be able to clean and shape the hole inside of your teeth before we place in any sterile filling. After we have completed the procedure, your tooth will be strengthened, and you’ll no longer feel the immense pain that you once did.

The Benefits of Getting Root Canal Treatment

The team at Hashtag Dentist will always endeavour to save a tooth wherever possible, which is why a root canal treatment is often the best course of action.

When you are referred to a Brisbane root canal dentist, this is an essential option to stop the pain you are feeling and improve your overall oral health. When you have a root canal treatment with a Brisbane root canal specialist at Hashtag Dentist you will experience a range of benefits within days of the procedure including:

The whole procedure is virtually painless: You will feel less discomfort during the root canal process and recovery compared to tooth extraction. Through a combination of modern techniques, a skilled Brisbane root canal dentist, meticulous hygiene and anesthesia you are unlikely to feel any severe pain.

It is a cost-effective procedure: Tooth extraction requires more time and follow up appointments and procedures like dental bridges, implants or dentures. This works out to be more expensive, so saving the tooth is a more affordable solution as well.

Payment Plans and Methods for Root Canal Treatment

Many customers ask about the root canal cost with insurance. Root canal therapy is generally not covered by health insurance extras in Australia.

It is necessary to have a high level of extras coverage to be covered by your dental insurance for root canal treatment. In general, major dental procedures, such as root canals, are not covered by extras cover policies.

However, Hashtag Dentist offers the most competitive rates for the highest standards of root canal treatment.

Furthermore, we offer Afterpay so that you can schedule your root canal procedure today and pay for it over four easy payments. There are ways to access award-winning smiles – no matter your budget – because our expert team believes that confidence should be available to all.

Root Canal Brisbane – FAQ’s

What is a root canal procedure?

A root canal procedure is performed when the tissue inside of teeth, known as the pulp, becomes infected. This dental pulp essentially houses all the nerves and nutrients inside teeth, so when it becomes infected, it can cause a lot of pain and discomfort.

During a root canal, your dentist will drill into your tooth to remove the pulp and nerve tissue, before cleaning out the root canal and then sealing the top of the tooth to restore its strength.

Not only does a root canal stop the infection from spreading, but it is one of the only ways to save your tooth.

What happens during a root canal?

A root canal at #dentist is relatively simple with little or no discomfort. Your dentist will complete the following over one to three visits, depending on the complexity of your situation.

Visit One

  1. The dentist will make an opening through the top of the tooth to reach the pulp.
  2. The dead/infected pulp is removed, and the cavity is cleaned. 
  3. A temporary filling is placed in the opening to protect the tooth between visits.

Visit Two

  1. Your dentist will remove the temporary filling before cleaning and filling the tooth with something more permanent. 
  2. A crown is placed over the tooth to protect it long term.
When should I get a root canal?

A root canal is one of the only ways to save badly infected or damaged teeth and prevent the bacteria from spreading and causing damage to the surrounding teeth, gums, and bone.

If you suffer from pain when biting and chewing, oversensitivity of teeth, and/or facial swelling, it is worth visiting your dentist. They will examine to see if you require a root canal, or if there is another issue at play.

Why do people get root canals?

An infected tooth cannot be left untreated, nor can it heal itself with antibiotics. If you avoid or delay a root canal, the infection can spread and lead to:

  • An abscess forming at the root of the tooth
  • Deterioration of the supporting bone tissue
  • Severe pain and discomfort
  • Blood poisoning
  • Fevers and swelling

The longer you delay treatment, the harder it is for your dentist to save your tooth and prevent further damage from occurring

How painful is biting after a root canal?

You may have slight discomfort that can be suppressed with over-the-counter painkillers like Ibuprofen. We recommend waiting a few hours after your procedure before you eat. Make sure you avoid directly chewing or biting down on that tooth until it is fully healed.

Stick to soft, cold foods and avoid any hard, crunchy, or chewy foods for the first few days, this will reduce any discomfort and ensure your tooth heals properly. Realistically, most people completely recover from their root canal after a few days and can return to eating their regular diet.

How much is a root canal?

The cost of a root canal depends on several factors; however, the average price in Australia varies between $2,000 and $3,400. Your Private Health Insurance may reimburse you for part of this cost depending on your level of cover.

How can I prevent a root canal treatment?

The best way to avoid getting a root canal is to practice good dental hygiene. This means brushing and flossing daily and visiting the dentist every six months for a check-up.

Do Emergency Dentists do Root Canals?

Yes. If the matter is urgent and the pain and level of infection mean the procedure cannot wait, Hashtag Dentist can provide you with emergency dentist root canal treatment. At the very least, we can manage your pain and infection until the procedure is carried out during business hours.

Can You Get Invisalign With Root Canal?

Generally, teeth that have undergone root canal treatment can be moved through orthodontic treatment. While the tooth is basically dead, we are moving the root’s outer surface within the bone. You should give your tooth time to heal and adjust after a root canal procedure, even if you have not started orthodontic treatment yet. We recommend waiting a couple of months before starting Invisalign.

What are the alternatives to root canal?

Alternatives to root canal treatment include tooth extraction and replacement with a dental implant, bridge, or removable partial denture. However, these options may have their own drawbacks and should be discussed with a dentist.

Is it wise to get a root canal?

Root canal treatment is a wise choice when the pulp inside a tooth becomes infected or damaged. It can save the tooth and prevent further oral health issues.

Got a toothache?

A persistent toothache could be a sign of underlying dental issues, possibly requiring a dental evaluation to determine the cause and necessary treatment, which may include a root canal.

Do I need root canal treatment?

The need for root canal treatment is determined by a dentist after a thorough examination, X-rays, and assessment of your dental condition. If the tooth’s pulp is infected or damaged, a root canal may be recommended.

What does root canal treatment involve?

Root canal treatment involves removing infected or damaged pulp from the tooth’s interior, cleaning and disinfecting the canal, and sealing it to prevent further infection.

What are the risks?

Risks of root canal treatment are minimal but may include post-procedure discomfort or the possibility of a need for retreatment if complications arise.

How do I know if I need a root canal procedure?

Common signs that may indicate the need for a root canal include severe toothache, sensitivity to hot or cold, gum swelling, or a pimple-like bump on the gums near a painful tooth. A dentist can provide a definitive diagnosis.

Will my root canal procedure be painful?

Modern root canal procedures are typically performed with local anesthesia, ensuring that you should not feel significant pain during the treatment. Post-procedure discomfort can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.

How many visits are needed for root canal treatment?

Most root canals can be completed in one to two visits, but the number of appointments required can vary depending on the complexity of the case and the dentist’s assessment. Your dentist will provide a treatment plan that outlines the expected number of visits.

I definitely recommend this dentist. I had appointments with Dr. Sonia and appreciate the effort that she went to when explaining problems she found, using pictures of my teeth as reference. After getting some fillings done I'm very happy with my experience, and will continue to go there. Thanks again Dr. Sonia and friendly staff!

Nathan Marshall

I highly recommend this dentist! Dr Amit was very professional and with a caring manner. I had a big surgery and very nervous about the pain etc. It was basically painfree. You couldn't go better for reasonable pricing and great customer service. Will be my go to dentist from now on.

Dean Burton

Dr. Amit Deveshkar is great. My son had issue which I was concerned. I got an appointment straight away. Checked up my son and assured everything is good. I recommend Amit and this clinic. Compassionate, knowledgeable and skilled doctor. He knows how to communicate with kids and treat them. He is now our family dentist.

Sudhir G B

Dr Amit and team are awesome, great service, advice and treatment. I must admit i do suffer a bit of anxiety when going to the dentist, though Dr Amit was excellent in explaining and telling me what he was doing and it helped me manage my anxiety. Very highly recommend.

Louise Stott

So happy we found Hashtag Dentist & Dr Amit Deveshkar following a not-so-good experience with another local dental practice. He has such a good way with his younger patients, making them feel at ease and explaining everything so it's easy to understand. And even with the more difficult dental work, I feel very confident as his skillset is second to none. Highly recommended!
