Root Canal Therapy

Preserve and keep your natural teeth with our root canal therapy

root canal therapy top section
A tooth infection can be incredibly painful and restrict you from your normal daily activities. If the infection is unmanaged, it can also spread and lead to the loss of tooth.
The thought of undergoing root canal therapy is often met with fear and anxiety. But, it is a standard procedure that can relieve your pain and preserve your tooth instead of undergoing tooth extraction. The dentist will disinfect and clean the inside of your tooth to stop the infection and seal it with a filling.
Timberlands Dental Clinic offers root canal therapy as part of our comprehensive services. With years of experience in our dental practice, our competent team of professionals will prioritise your comfort and safety throughout the procedure. We are also a preferred provider for health fund providers such as HBF, Bupa, HCF and Medibank, offering convenient appointment times and payment plans to fit your needs.

Dental Problems

Dental Problems That A Root Canal Therapy Can Address

Severe Toothache

If you’re experiencing a toothache that persists or worsens over time, it could be a sign that it is infected.

With our root canal therapy, you can get relief from the pain and pressure caused by an infected tooth, without needing extraction.

Dental Abscess

A dental abscess is a pus-filled sac, usually at the end of a tooth’s root, that causes severe pain, swelling, and damage to the surrounding teeth.

We can perform this treatment for you efficiently to remove the infection causing this and preserve your tooth.

Knocked-out Tooth

If your tooth was knocked out by an accident or an injury, it’s essential to see us as soon as possible.

Reattachment may still be possible; however, root canal therapy may need to be performed after the tooth is put back in place.

Frequently Asked Questions about
Root Canal Therapy

You may be a good candidate for root canal dental services if you have:

  • Severe tooth pain
  • Tooth sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
  • A tooth injury that has damaged the tooth’s nerve
  • Signs of an infected tooth or abscess

Still, any dental procedure involves risks. Schedule an appointment with us so we can determine if this treatment is right for you.

There are many benefits to root canal therapy, including:

  • Preserving your natural teeth and smile
  • Preventing the need for more expensive tooth replacement
  • Preventing further damage to the surrounding teeth
  • Helping you maintain proper chewing function
  • Relieving toothache and discomfort
  • Restoring an infected or damaged tooth

Root canal therapy is usually performed in one to three visits, depending on your condition. During the procedure, our team will:

  1. Examine the entire tooth and take X-rays to determine the extent of the damage.

  2. Numb the area around the tooth with local anesthesia.

  3. Create an opening on your tooth to remove the infected pulp tissue (nerve tissue) and use instruments to clean its inside.

  4. Fill the tooth with a biocompatible material to seal it off. In the meantime, a temporary restoration will be placed on the tooth.

  5. Assess the healing and ensure the infection has been eliminated.

  6. Place a permanent restoration on the tooth, such as a dental crown or filling.

Your dentists will remove the unhealthy pulp tissue inside the tooth. Then, they will clean it using special instruments and seal the space by filling it with a material. This procedure will help reduce the infection from spreading, alleviate pain and restore the function of your tooth.

During the root canal treatment itself, you should feel no pain. Your dentist will use a local anaesthetic to ensure this.

You may experience mild to moderate soreness in the area after the dental treatment. This can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.

It would depend on the condition of your tooth after the procedure. A crown is sometimes recommended to protect the tooth from further damage or decay, or to improve its appearance.

Please consult with your dentist so they can make you a personalised treatment plan and give you recommendations for your case.

It would be best to wait a few hours before eating after your procedure because your mouth may still be numb, making you more likely to bite or injure it.

Avoid chewing hard, crunchy, and sticky foods, especially on the side of your mouth where the root canal was done, to prevent damaging the tooth. Prioritise dental hygiene practices like tooth brushing and flossing twice daily to prevent re-infection.

Lastly, follow your dentist’s aftercare and oral hygiene instructions for ideal healing and results.

The cost of the root canal procedure will depend on factors such as the tooth being treated, the number of roots it has, and the clinic location. Root canal therapy usually starts at $600 with one canal and may range up to $3600 with a crown. 

However, this may not be constant all the time so don’t hesitate to contact our clinic to determine the exact cost. If you have private health insurance, it may cover part of the cost. We recommend checking with them to see which dental services are included in your plan.
