Root Canals

Root canals get a lot of bad publicity that they don’t really deserve. Advancements in dental procedures and technology have resulted in a procedure that is comparable to a filling these days. The infection causing the need for the root canal is what causes pain and putting off treatment only allows it to become more uncomfortable.

For Quality Dental Care You Can Trust

Now that we have established that there is little to fear from root canals other than not getting one when you need it, let’s talk about how the procedure works.

Access to the canals is gained by going through the top of the tooth. Once there, your Victoria dentists use an electronic apex locator to predict the exact length of each canal of any given tooth. The electronic handpiece, which senses the amount of force applied, is then used to gently clean each canal. Once cleaned and disinfected, each canal is sealed, and a filling will be placed. If the root canal is on a molar, it is important to have a crown placed to prevent future problems with the affected tooth.
