Save Your Tooth

Are your teeth extremely sensitive and painful?

A toothache is the most common symptom of needing a root canal. If the tooth is still alive, you will experience extreme sensitivity to hot or cold liquids or foods, and that sensitivity will continue even after the hot or cold stimulus is taken away from the tooth. Heat sensitivity, instead of cold, is a symptom that is very specific to a tooth requiring root canal treatment.

If you don’t visit your dentist as soon as the pain starts, your teeth might decay, and an extraction may be required.

Root Canal Treatments Stop The Infection

A root canal (or endodontic) is a treatment of the pulp of the tooth that is inflamed, infected, or dead. The dental pulp is a soft substance in the centre of the tooth that consists of the nerve, blood vessels, and connective tissue.

The pulp chamber is the hollow part in the centre of the tooth that contains the pulp, and it continues down canals that extend through the roots of teeth and into the surrounding bone. Some roots have more than one root canal, but all have at least one canal.

We will use a local anaesthetic before making a small hole on the top of your tooth during the treatment. Our experienced dentists will then clean any decay and remove the infected nerve while placing medication into the canals.

At Hutt Dental Hub, we will ensure your treatment is pain-free and your teeth are restored to their former glory.
