Root Canal Therapy
Root Canal Therapy Hervey Bay
Tooth decay can cause an abscess (infection). The tooth is first anaesthetized to make the procedure painless. The decay is removed and an opening is made through the crown of the tooth into the nerve pulp chamber. The nerve pulp is removed and the root canals are cleaned and shaped.
The root canals and pulp chamber are filled. A metal or plastic composite post may be placed in the root canal to help retain the core (filling) material foundation, which supports the restoration (crown). The tooth is then restored with a crown.
How long will the restored tooth last?
When properly restored, a tooth with a root canal filling can last for many years. But, like any other tooth, it can become decayed or fractured or the tissue around it can get gum disease. Daily cleanings and regular dental exams will help keep your mouth healthy, whether you’ve had root canal therapy or not.
