Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment or Endodontic therapy is often the final attempt to save a broken or diseased tooth. Once the pulp of a tooth becomes infected by bacteria or becomes irreversibly inflamed, a painful abscess forms at the base of the tooth, which requires treatment if the tooth is to remain in the mouth.

Root canal treatment has a reputation for being a painful procedure, but at Robina Dental Group with appropriate local anaesthesia techniques and the option of happy gas, combined with the availability of rapid digital radiography, rubber dam and rotary endodontic techniques, root canal treatment is expedited and is usually completely painless with patients often falling asleep during the procedure!

Speak to one of our dentists to properly assess the suitability and prognosis of this treatment should you require endodontic therapy.
