Root Canal Therapy
Root Canal Therapy Brisbane, Fortitude Valley
Root canal therapy is a dental treatment used to clean a deeply infected tooth by removing the infected tissue, cleaning and disinfecting the root canal and then filling the canal with an inert material to protect the root from further damage. Our skilled team here at Precision Dental in Brisbane Fortitude Valley utilises the latest root canal therapy technologies and procedures to help relieve patients of infection and pain.
Your Tooth and the Root Canal
The hard, outer layer of enamel that forms the visible crown
The dentine that lies under the enamel and supports the crown of your tooth
The root, which is more of a canal or hollow tube the extends from the base of the tooth and contains dental pulp, nerves, and blood vessels
Cementum, a hard material that coats and protects the root
All teeth are prone to cavities, which is why daily oral hygiene is so important. However, when food debris or bacteria get trapped or hidden, it can cause an infection. If left untreated, the infection can seep into the root canal and infect the dental pulp, which can become very painful. Root canal therapy is the dental treatment that can stop the pain and save your tooth.
We travel across town to visit the dentist. We do this because of the competent professional service we receive from Billy. We are always given a warm greeting by Rachel on arrival. Visiting the dentist is an outing now. Not something to be worried about. When you need a dentist, I can highly recommend Billy, even if it means a trip on the train or bus to get there.
How Did My Tooth Get Infected?
Mouth infections usually begin with inadequate oral hygiene, heredity or external factors such as smoking. Even with regular brushing, however, a chronic infection can lead to dental caries, which is bacteria that adheres to the surface of teeth. This infection can turn into a hardened plaque, trapping even more harmful bacteria underneath. Eventually the infection creates a hole in the tooth called a cavity, and soon after the infection spreads into the tooth affecting the root.
There are a variety of factors that can lead to infection along with inadequate brushing practices and heredity. The following is a summary of these factors:
