Q Dental Bulimba Endodontic Therapy

Our Bulimba family dental practice offers comprehensive services that many offices do not. This allows us to make your oral health care more comfortable, efficient and affordable. Endodontic therapy (root canals) and in-house dental extractions are just a couple of the ways we help our patients enjoy happier, healthier smiles.

Does Your Tooth Require Endodontic Treatment?

Getting a root canal isn’t as intimidating as most people think it will be. It’s more like having a filling that goes down into the nerve chamber of your tooth. You may need this type of endodontic procedure if your tooth has

  • A very large cavity that extends into the nerve
  • Evidence of an abscess
  • Experienced past trauma, leading to tooth death
  • Severe pain

Treating your tooth with a root canal is an effective way to combat pain while preserving your natural teeth. After treatment, you will need a crown to protect the remaining structure, which can be especially prone to wear.

Gentle Dental Extractions

If it’s not possible to treat a tooth with a root canal, then extracting it may be your best alternative. Removing a problematic tooth alleviates pain and prevents infection from spreading to other areas of your mouth.

Does your tooth need to be pulled? Here are some of the most common situations where an extraction might be warranted

  • Severe pain
  • Extensive decay
  • Fractured roots
  • Problematic wisdom teeth
  • Broken teeth

Fortunately, our team can keep you comfortable throughout the process. Afterward, we’ll find a tooth replacement solution such as an implant or bridge to help you smile again. Otherwise, the teeth on either side of the missing one will start to drift out of place. Replacing the extracted tooth isn’t just best for aesthetics, it enhances the function of your overall bite.
