Root Canal Therapy (RCT)

Despite what many people believe, the goal of a root canal is not to cause you immense pain. Instead, the goal of this treatment is to save a tooth that is severely infected, damaged or diseased. Millions of teeth are treated and saved with this procedure each year, relieving pain and making the tooth healthy again.

Inside your tooth, beneath the white enamel and hard layer called dentin, is a soft tissue call the pulp (the nerve). This tissue contains blood vessels, nerves and connective tissues, which helps to grow the root of your tooth during its development. A fully developed tooth can survive without the pulp as the tooth continues to be nourished by the tissues surrounding it.

A RCT procedure is very similar to a routing filling and can be completed in either one, two or three appointments depending on the condition of your tooth and your personal circumstances. Undergoing a root canal therapy procedure is relatively painless and extremely effective. Our team at Caloundra Dental Studio will make sure you’ll be back to smiling, biting and chewing with ease in no time.
