Root canals performed by the dentist of Bethlehem Dental Centre, Tauranga, are an intricate dental procedure that will transform damaged and painful teeth into beautiful and pain-free teeth.
The root canal procedure involves drilling through the top of a heavily damaged tooth to access the infected or decaying dental pulp, in order to remove the damaged inner material, and to sanitize the inner tooth canal to prevent further infection and pain. Once the tooth canal is adequately sanitized by our specialist dentist, the space inside the tooth is filled with a flexible plastic dental material, and then topped with a temporary filling. From that point patients will already notice significantly less dental discomfort and pain, however, once our dentists can be absolutely sure that all signs of infection are gone, the tooth will be fitted with a permanent tooth crown, resulting in a natural and healthy looking tooth, with a strong structure, a normal bite, and no more pain.
Root canal treatment is a significant advancement in dentistry, and the advent and improvement of tooth canal treatment techniques has ensured that many patients have been able to keep their natural teeth, which, in the past, would need to have been removed due entirely. Over the years many Tauranga patients of Bethlehem Dental Centre have returned to praise the results of their root canal treatment, saying that the results of the procedure have allowed them to do activities and eat foods which would have caused them significant pain in the past.
Root canal treatment is sometimes are associated with severe pain, and while it is true that the procedure may result in temporary soreness and tooth sensitivity, the dentists of Bethlehem Dental Centre, Tauranga, will take all necessary steps to minimize discomfort, ensuring that patients are able to return to normal daily life as soon as possible.
