We offer quality root canal therapy in Auckland.
Root canal is a simple treatment that can save your natural teeth and prevent the need of dental implants or bridges.
Unfortunately ‘root canal’ evokes a fear in patients, mostly due to the inaccurate information out there. In reality, root canal is a very safe and effective treatment that dentists routinely perform with a high degree of success. Instead of inducing pain and discomfort, the therapy actually helps to relieve the painful symptoms that come with an inflamed or infected pulp.
When would you require root canal treatment?
A root canal is an alternate to tooth extraction. It is typically performed when the very central part of your tooth has become inflamed and infected. A root canal treatment will involve removing this part of the tooth (called pulp), cleaning and restoring with a filling or a crown. The main objective of this procedure is to KEEP your natural tooth.
Sounds simple? It is.
If you’re seeking to do a root canal in Auckland or think you may need one, request an appointment with us today. Putting off a necessary root canal can quickly lead to loss of your entire tooth and/ or abbesses. We also provide emergency appointments each day, and can easily work you into our normal schedule to assess your needs.
Depending on your teeth, and how early or late you go to a dentist, root canal treatments may be complex and require 1 to 3 appointments to complete. Our dentists can advise this at the time of your check-up.
Is root canal treatment painful?
Root canal therapy is no more uncomfortable than any other type of dental treatment. It is only a little more time-consuming in some cases, depending on which tooth is being treated.
At Auckland Family Dental, we are proud to provide painless dentistry using latest sedation techniques before, during and after your endodontic procedure (another name for root canal treatment).
Is a root canal expensive?
The cost of your root canal will depend on which tooth is being treated. Most teeth have 1, 2, or 3 roots depending on their location, and this will affect the fee.
At Auckland Family Dentist we do everything we can to make all of our services as affordable as possible, removing all unnecessary overheads and focusing on high quality dental work, including root canal treatment. For top quality and affordable root canal in Auckland, look no further than Auckland Family Dentist.
How do I go about booking?
Typically the process involves an initial assessment and dental x-ray, followed by the treatment course. Following the treatment, you may also need a crown placed on your tooth to protect it. We cater to emergencies and re-treatment as well (arising out of a persistent or secondary infection).
