Root Canal Therapy at Go Dental Surgery

In-house Endodontics in Gosnells

When you have a toothache, there is a likelihood that the discomfort is caused by an infected nerve. Infection is typically due to a deep filling or cavity that is close to the nerve, causing it to flare up.

To alleviate the pain, our Gosnells family dentists can either extract the tooth or remove its nerve and restore it with a crown. Most people refer to this type of nerve treatment as a root canal.

What to Expect

Illustration of inside of toothTreating your infected nerve is usually a process that we break up into three stages:

  • Stage 1 – During the first appointment, we remove the infected dental nerve. Then, medication is placed inside of the tooth to eliminate any germs and provide pain relief.
  • Stage 2 – Next, we prepare and widen the nerve chambers before placing a filling that extends into the canal.
  • Stage 3 – No later than a few months after the root canal is completed, we will recommend having a crown placed over the tooth to protect it from the risk of fracture. This restoration is necessary because non-vital teeth are extremely prone to chipping or wear.

Do I Have an Infected Nerve?

Even though nerve infections frequently cause pain, it is possible to be completely free of discomfort, and have something still be wrong with the tooth. Symptoms can also include a boil on the gums. An X-ray may be necessary to determine the extent of the nerve infection.
