About Root Canal Treatment
That’s why we’ve put together this list of frequently asked questions to help you
feel more confident about your decision to get a root canal in Maryborough.
With modern dental technology, a root canal procedure is essentially pain-free. Your dentist will use local anaesthesia to numb the area around your tooth. This numbing agent will reduce pain during the procedure. If you are extremely nervous about going to the dentist, you may choose to be sedated.
If you’re worried about root canal treatment or want to learn more about the procedure, visit our clinic. We would be happy to answer your questions and put your mind at ease.
Depending on the infected tooth’s number of canals, a root canal treatment may require two appointments, each lasting from 30 to 90 minutes or more.

First, the dentist will numb the tooth and the surrounding area. Next, a small access hole will be drilled into the tooth to reach the tooth pulp. The inflamed or diseased tooth pulp is exposed and will be removed, and the area will be cleaned and disinfected. A filling will then be placed in the access hole, and the tooth will be sealed. In most cases, a crown will also be placed on the tooth to protect it from further damage.
If you’ve recently had a root canal, your dentist likely recommended dental crowns. A dental crown is necessary after a root canal to protect the tooth from further damage. The crown encases the entire visible portion of your tooth, protecting against further tooth decay or trauma. It also helps maintain the structure and strength of the tooth after the procedure.

Signs of a failed root canal commonly come in the form of pain or discomfort localised to the area around the previously infected tooth. Another common sign is persistent bad breath or a bad taste in your mouth, which an abscess or infection can cause near the tooth that underwent a root canal. In rare cases, an individual may also experience swelling and sensitivity to temperature changes.
If you experience these symptoms after having root canal therapy in Maryborough, visit our clinic for further evaluation and care.
