Why Opt for Root Canal Therapy?
Here are some reasons why opting for Root Canal Therapy at Coastal Dental can be a beneficial choice:
Preservation of Natural Teeth
Relief from Pain
Understanding Root Canal Therapy
Root Canal Therapy, also known as Endodontic Treatment, is a dental procedure aimed at saving a damaged or infected tooth, averting the need for extraction. The treatment involves removing the infected or inflamed pulp from the tooth’s interior, cleaning the inner chambers, and sealing it to prevent future infections. It is a pivotal intervention that stops infection in its tracks, preserving the natural structure of your tooth.
The Root Canal Therapy Process at Coastal Dental
Step 1: Detailed Examination
Your journey begins with an in-depth diagnostic process involving:
- Radiographic Analysis: Leveraging advanced radiographic techniques for a comprehensive view of the tooth structure.
- Individual Consultation: Understanding your medical history and customising the treatment plan to suit your individual needs.
Step 2: The Treatment Phase
- Anaesthesia: Administering local anaesthesia to ensure a pain-free experience.
- Pulp Removal: Expert removal of the infected pulp with precision and care.
- Cleaning and Shaping: Utilising modern tools to clean and shape the canals perfectly.
- Filling and Sealing: Filling the cleaned canals with a biocompatible material and sealing the tooth to prevent reinfections.
Step 3: Restoration
- Temporary Restoration: Initially, a temporary restoration is placed to protect the treated area.
- Permanent Restoration: A few weeks later, we proceed to a permanent restoration, potentially using a crown to fortify the tooth and restore its full function.

Frequently Asked Questions
Symptoms suggesting you might require Root Canal Therapy include persistent pain, increased sensitivity to hot and cold substances, swollen gums near the affected tooth, darkening of the tooth, and a recurring pimple on the gums. If you experience any of these symptoms, we recommend scheduling a consultation at Coastal Dental for a comprehensive evaluation.
Modern Root Canal Therapy procedures are designed to minimise discomfort. At Coastal Dental, we use local anaesthesia to numb the area being treated, resulting in a virtually pain-free procedure. Our primary goal is to alleviate your pain and preserve your natural tooth comfortably and efficiently.
With proper care and hygiene, a tooth treated through Root Canal Therapy can last a lifetime. Following the therapy, it is often recommended to protect the tooth with a crown to enhance its durability. Regular dental check-ups and adhering to good oral hygiene practices will further ensure the longevity of the treatment.
The main alternative to Root Canal Therapy is tooth extraction, followed by a dental implant or bridge to replace the missing tooth. However, we at Coastal Dental always prioritise preserving your natural teeth, as it is generally a more favourable and cost-effective solution in the long run.
After the procedure, you may experience some tenderness in the treated area for a few days. This is normal and can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications, as suggested by your dentist. We will provide you with a personalised aftercare plan to facilitate optimal healing and guide you on maintaining oral hygiene to prevent future infections.
At Coastal Dental, we are committed to guiding you through every step of your dental health journey with empathy and expertise.
