Root Canal Treatment Paddington
The common misconception regarding root canal therapy is that it is a painful procedure. However, the main objective of root canal therapy is to relieve pain caused by the infected root and nerve tissue, and to save your natural tooth from extraction. The thought of root canal therapy causes many patients to delay their treatment. However, the longer you wait, the more severe the pain and extensive the infection can become.
The introduction of new dental techniques and the development of fine instruments mean root canal therapy can be completed with little discomfort, and in as few as two appointments.
For several days following your treatment, it is normal to experience some swelling and a slight dull ache. Over-the-counter pain relief medication will alleviate the discomfort.
Over 95% of root canal treatments are successful; however, on rare occasions the procedure will need to be redone due to further infection. The earlier your treatment is performed the less likely this will be required.
