Root Canal Therapy

Count on quality care from the professionals at Hall Dental when it comes to performing Root Canal Therapy.

A root canal is necessary when your tooth has developed, or is very likely to develop, an infection in the pulp, the soft tissue inside your tooth. Once you have an infection in the pulp of a tooth, you will need a dental intervention since this type of infection cannot clear up on its own and can result in an abscess.

If an abscess develops in your tooth, substantial complications such as loss of the tooth or bone loss may occur. An abscess can even negatively impact your overall health. A root canal removes this infection and prevents future infections from developing.

What is root canal therapy?

A root canal is a dental procedure that involves the removal of the infected pulp tissue from inside the affected tooth.

What happens during a root canal?

At Hall Dental, we begin by applying a local anaesthetic and then proceed to remove the infected pulp from your tooth. Once the infected pulp has been completely extracted, we use dental material to fill in the hollow area in the tooth created by the extraction.

Typically, we place a crown over the infected tooth to provide strength and structure as well as to protect it from future damage.

What can I expect after my root canal?

More often than not, our patients experience very little discomfort although there may be some minor tenderness for a short period of time.

We often prescribe medications such as anti-inflammatories or antibiotics. After a root canal, you'll be able to enjoy food and drinks without sensitivity or pain due to heat, cold, or pressure.
