Root Canal Treatment Joondalup
When a tooth causes pain, there could be something wrong with the nerve inside the tooth. A fracture of the tooth, severe periodontal disease or a deep cavity may have reached the nerve and cause discomfort. Whenever a tooth has had significant work done (existing crown or large filling close to the nerve) there is a chance the nerve may react adversely, sometimes many years after treatment.
In these situations, cleaning out the damage infected nerves and disinfecting the tooth can usually save it from extraction and relieve pain and/or sensitivity. Usually, the root canal treatment is pain-free and you experience minimal discomfort afterward. While complex and technical, root canal procedure has a general success rate of 96%.
Once the root canal treatment is finished, a dental crown may be required. The dental crown helps to keep the tooth strong and prevents it from fracturing.
