Endodontic therapy is necessary if you’re suffering from severe discomfort and the dentist has identified a severely damaged or decayed tooth.

The tooth’s pulp located at the center of the teeth becomes inflamed due to invading bacteria, typically known as Pulpitis. Other causes of discomfort leading to root canal treatment are tooth decay, leaky fillings, post-pain trauma, pulpal sensitivity known as nerve pain or excess teeth grinding.

Pulpitis can become so severe which may mean the tooth needs to be removed entirely to make way for further replacement-tooth surgery such as implants or dentures.

  • Maintain the natural structure of the jaw and mouth to maintain a smooth bite and chew function.
  • Keep stimulation of the bone to maintain its strength, which helps keep your teeth strong.

Root Canal Treatment Aftercare at Garran Dental

Once root canal treatment is complete, it is very rare that the concerned area will become infected again. However, immediately after treatment, the tooth will be sensitive and must be appropriately cared for before it settles.

  • Avoid eating around the root canal and use a soft-bristle brush temporarily to brush around the tooth gently.
  • Do not eat solids, chewy or crunchy foods immediately after treatment, as this is more likely to cause more damage in its sensitive state. You should seek regular check-ups with the dentist to ensure your root canal is functioning correctly and avoid further complications.
  • Do not ignore tooth pain. You could be causing yourself further damage to your teeth without your knowledge. Garran are motivated to make sure this doesn’t happen. Our experienced dentists are on hand to restore naturality in your life again.
