Root Canal Sydney CBD
Root Canal Treatment - Sydney CBD
If you are in need of root canal treatment, Sydney dentists Wynyard Dental offer endodontic work as part of their expert range of services.
What is Root Canal Treatment?
Decay or injury in a tooth can cause nerves in the hollow of the tooth to die off. Bacteria feeds on this decaying pulp (the name given to the nerve, cell and blood material inside the tooth’s hollow) and multiplies, causing infection in the nerve and blood supply. This can create a painful abscess, usually at the tip of the root.
With the dying nerves sealed inside the tooth, the blood supply there also dies off and the body loses the ability to clean and heal that area naturally. Root canal work then becomes a likely or necessary option. The alternative is usually the removal of the tooth.
Treatment involves cleaning out the decaying pulp and sterilising the inside of the tooth. A plug made of a rubbery material called gutta-percha, is then inserted to fill the space inside the tooth, preventing any more bacteria from getting in there. This work is usually topped with a normal filling over the plug, and then a crown might be added for the best protection of the tooth.
