ROOT CANAL TREATMENT IN FAIRFIELD
Sensitive teeth and recurring tooth pain is best treated early.
Root canal treatment is the removal of infected, irritated and painful nerve tissue that exists in the root of the tooth. Without the removal of this tissue, an abscess will inevitably occur resulting in more acute pain.
Serious tooth infections or critically decayed teeth have traditionally been extracted, leaving a gap or requiring a denture. However, most teeth in these conditions can be saved using root canal treatment, making tooth extraction a last resort option. It is always better to preserve the natural tooth where possible.
We are committed to providing the most gentle and affordable root canal treatments in Fairfield.
All The Details
About This Treatment
What is a root canal?
A root canal is needed when infection and decay reach the inner part of a tooth, causing severe pain and significant damage to the tooth root. If left untreated, you could lose your tooth. Root canal treatment is often the only alternative to having a tooth extracted.
A tooth can become vulnerable to decay from cavities, chipping and breaking. When the decay progresses and reaches the inside of the tooth, the dental pulp can become infected and this infection may cause severe swelling and pain.
Does a root canal eliminate pain?
Root canals are very effective at eliminating the severe pain caused by infection and decay.
By removing all the infection, root canal treatment restores the structure of the tooth and preserves your smile and oral health.
Root canal treatment also prevents the need for expensive and invasive restoration options to replace the tooth.
Do root canals hurt?
With advances in modern dentistry, root canal treatment is now a gentle and conservative treatment option. You will also receive a local anaesthetic – this will numb the area so you won’t feel any pain during the treatment.
Root canal treatment can take two or more appointments and our trusted dentists and team will make each appointment as comfortable as possible for you.

Root canal and crown
After a root canal, you can consider having a crown put over the tooth as this will help prevent tooth breakage. This is especially helpful if extensive restoration was done, leaving a thin shell of a tooth.

The cost of root canal therapy does depend on several factors, including how many canals need to be filled and if you require a crown. However, at Perfect Dental, we are committed to providing you with the most affordable root canal treatment in Fairfield.
