Gentle Root Canal at Your Smile Centre

Tooth Nerve Therapy in Inner West Sydney

When the nerve of a tooth dies, bacteria can start to multiply inside of it. Ultimately, our bodies will begin to reject dead teeth, which can lead to pain. Or, an infection like tooth decay can cause the tooth to become hypersensitive to cold, heat or pressure. A root canal with one of our highly trained Inner West Sydney family dentists can help you to preserve your tooth instead of needing to have it pulled.

Filling the Inside of the Nerve Chamber

Root canal therapy treats the tooth from the inside out. During the procedure, one of our seasoned dentists will remove the infection, medicate the inside of the tooth, fill the chamber to seal off the nerve canal and then place a crown over the tooth so that it does not break. The process can take a few visits to complete.

Without endodontic treatment, the infection inside of your tooth could spread to elsewhere in the body. What may look like a small abscess on your gums could indeed cause far greater health complications, including damage to the bone around your teeth.

Symptoms of Abscessed Teeth

In addition to having a small “pimple” along the gums, you may also notice a tooth abscess if you have symptoms of:

  • Pain when chewing pressure is applied to the tooth
  • Sensitivity to hot or cold
  • Darkening of the tooth’s colour

Cleaning the inside of your tooth and protecting it with a crown can allow you to keep your tooth healthy and stable for several years to come.
