Emergency Root Canal Canberra

Harrison Dental Care

You might think having a root canal can be a stressful, and even painful, experience. But it doesn’t have to be that way with professional emergency root canal services in Canberra.

How Do I Know If I Need An Emergency Root Canal Treatment?

  • Severe pain when chewing or applying pressure to teeth
  • Swollen gums
  • A dark or discoloured tooth
  • Sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures long after eating or drinking
  • A pimple on the gums that won’t go away or keeps returning.

The purpose of a root canal is to preserve the tooth. If left untreated, an abscess can form at the root tip, causing bacteria to spread to the jawbone and throughout the rest of the body.
A root canal involves replacing the damaged or infected pulp of a tooth with a temporary filling until a permanent filling or crown can be placed.

Most people who undergo this sort of procedure can expect to have a fully-functional tooth which should last as long as you maintain proper oral hygiene and visit your dentist on a regular basis.

A root canal helps to avoid further infection by removing active decay and damaged nerve tissue. It also ensures that bacteria will not leak back into the tooth by creating a well-sealed restoration (for example, with a crown).
A considerable loss of tooth structure might also result in further protection in the form of a gold alloy or porcelain crown.

While undergoing an emergency root canal in Canberra, you will be placed under local anaesthetic. A professional dentist will make the treatment as comfortable and as pain-free as possible; you may experience some discomfort post-surgery, but this usually goes away quickly.
