Root Canal Therapy
Take the anxiety out of root canal treatment
Many of our patients are anxious when it comes to receiving root canal therapy. Our team at Family Dental Excellence in Upper Mt Gravatt values our patients comfort. Our dental professionals strive to make our patients feel confident and relaxed throughout their root canal treatment. Ignoring the development of tooth decay can lead to more debilitating oral conditions. With our various techniques and pain relieving processes, Family Dental Excellence can repair your damaged tooth with minimal discomfort.
Address your tooth’s infected pulp before you experience further deterioration
While restorative dentistry is extremely effective, at Family Dental Excellence we encourage our patients to take the necessary precautions to retain their natural teeth. Your tooth’s pulp contains a variety of blood vessels, as well as nerve and tissue fibres. When your pulp becomes infected, you can experience extreme sensitivity and discomfort, which can lead to more serious conditions. Correction of damaged or infected pulp can help to save the tooth from extraction and avoid more extensive dental treatment. There are a number of symptoms that can indicate that your tooth’s pulp is infected, such as:
- Sensitivity to hot and cold liquids and food items
- Loosening of the tooth
- Swelling and redness of the gum
- Reoccurring tooth aches
- Discomfort or pain when biting or chewing

Walking you through your root canal treatment
Using the adequate anaesthesia required to your personal sensitivity, our dental professionals will remove the damaged pulp with minimal discomfort. Once we have eliminated the infected pulp, your tooth will be thoroughly cleansed and a sedative dressing material placed. Our skilled dental professionals will then seal your tooth to prevent any further damage.
Stay comfortable throughout your procedure
Our caring staff can accommodate even the most nervous patients when undergoing root canal therapy. We offer a range of anaesthetic and sedation options, including nitrous oxide (commonly known as laughing gas), to accommodate for our patients various levels of anxiety.
Saving your natural tooth
Here at Family Dental Excellence we believe root canal therapy is extremely valuable as it allows us to help save natural teeth . Our team always endeavours to retain as many natural teeth in each smile as possible. Root canal treatment can prevent the tooth’s decay from spreading and worsening to the point that that the tooth is lost altogether.
