Dedicated Root Canal Services

There is nothing scarier than hearing you need a root canal treatment! However, an endodontic treatment, also known as a root canal, is nothing to be afraid of. In fact, as one of the most common dental procedures performed today, root canals treatments are easy and pain-free.

At Buderim Dental Surgery, we provide specialised root canal services that are designed to save your tooth and relieve you of pain. Using the latest technology and equipment, our gentle dentists will have you feeling better in no time!

Painful & Infected Teeth?

Inside each tooth is a pulp, which provides the tooth with nerves, connective tissue, blood supply and nutrients. However, if the tooth becomes damaged or diseased this pulp can die, causing pain and swelling.

If left untreated, bacteria can enter the too and a root canal abscess may form. Not only is this painful, but can be detrimental to your surrounding teeth and bone.

As dental care professionals in Sunshine Coast, the team at Buderim Dental Surgery offer comprehensive root canal treatments to effectively removes the diseased pulp to stop the infection, alleviate pain and prevent tooth loss. This means that we are able to save your natural teeth and retain your ability to eat speak and smile without pain!

Do You Need A Root Canal?

We all experience toothaches from time to time. However, if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, it may be time to book a root canal treatment appointment with our Sunshine Coast Dentists. While the most common symptoms of damaged pulp include pain and swelling, it is always best to see a dentist for a diagnosis. Not only will our root canal experts examine the tooth to confirm your diagnosis, but we are able to provide qualified advice on the best course of action. Signs that you may need a root canal treatment include:

  • Severe tooth pain when chewing or biting
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures
  • Swelling and tenderness in the gum
  • Dark discolouration of the tooth

What To Expect

At Buderim Dental Surgery, we understand that having a root canal can be daunting. However, our skilled dentists will ensure you feel comfortable and relaxed throughout your treatment.

Prior to beginning the procedure, our dentists will take an x-ray to examine the shape of the root canals and determine areas of infection. We will numb the tooth and surrounding area to ensure you feel no pain, before a hole is drilled into the tooth to remove the pulp. Our dentists will gently clean, drain and fill the tooth with a permanent filling. This sealing is for protection and a crown is placed for increased strength.

Trusted Dental Care

At Buderim Dental Surgery, we strive to protect and maintain your natural tooth structure. We believe that natural teeth are always better than artificial replacements, which are often more complex and costly to perform. As experts in root canals, you can count on your Buderim dentists to provide the highest quality dental care to relieve your tooth pain and restore your smile!

While a root canal removal treatment sounds stressful, we endeavour to make your experience as positive as possible. Our dentists will explain each step of the procedure, answer any questions you may have and provide qualified advice on looking after your tooth post-treatment.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Root Canal Treatment

Your wisdom teeth are usually your last to erupt—third molars that appear very gradually between the ages of 17 and 25 years. However, everyone has different timing! Not every person gets them so sometimes they fail to grow in, or they may become impacted (stuck). Wisdom teeth often come in at an angle instead of straight up and down. So it is possible for them not to come through your gums—which means you don't have wisdom teeth!

If you don't have enough space in your mouth for these third molars, wisdom teeth can crowd or even block your other teeth. You also risk having damage and decay occur on the adjacent second molars because food and bacteria may build up around their roots. Impacted wisdom teeth can contribute to gum disease and cysts; impactions within the jawbone can cause pain and swelling as well as joint problems if infection occurs.

Most people do not have problems with their wisdom teeth. If these molars erupt without difficulty, your dentist or oral surgeon may recommend simply watching the tooth to make sure it doesn't cause a problem. However, if a wisdom tooth is partially visible and it's difficult to clean properly, you may need to have it extracted. So ask your dentist about your specific situation at your next check-up.

Wisdom teeth may not grow in properly and become impacted, which means they do not break through the gum tissue. Food and plaque can build up around the roots of impacted wisdom teeth, causing infection, gum disease, cysts ,and even tumors . If an impacted wisdom tooth is left untreated, it could damage the surrounding teeth or cause a cyst or tumor to form.
