In the past, if you had a diseased tooth or one with a badly injured nerve, there would have been no way to save it. With Root Canal Therapy, you can save your natural tooth and avoid extraction. Not only do you restore the natural tooth back to its original condition, you avoid having to undergo potentially expensive restorative dentistry and the need for artificial teeth replacements.
Unfortunately, some patients avoid Root Canal Therapy believing that the procedure may be painful. In reality, the 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.
At No Gaps Dental, we provide all treatments using minimally invasive techniques to provide as pain-free a patient experience as possible – and our Root Canal Therapies are no exception. As professional healthcare providers, our first priority is to preserve your natural teeth using safe and comfortable methods to achieve successful and predictable outcomes. Root Canal Therapy is one of the most clinically advanced dental techniques that promotes the health and preservation of your natural teeth.

Root Canal Explained
Located at the centre of every tooth is a natural cavity known as the pulp chamber. In it lies an intricate web of pulp, nerves and blood vessels. When the tooth pulp is badly injured or diseased, a root canal procedure may be performed to remove the infected pulp in order to prevent the infection from spreading.
The pulp is a tissue that aids in the development of the tooth during its formative years, by supplying nutrients to the tooth. Since the tissues surrounding the root take over the nutrient-supplying role of the pulp when the tooth is fully grown, an adult tooth can essentially function normally without its pulp.
The Root Canal procedure involves extracting the infected pulp and root of the tooth, cleaning out the inside of the tooth and sealing it to protect from further damage.
The main cause of root canal is a deep decay that has infected the tooth roots, although the infection may also be wrought by injury or an external impact to the tooth. There are many signs that indicate that a tooth is infected or inflamed. However, some patients exhibit no symptoms at all. The common signs and symptoms that may indicate a need for root canal include: Discoloured (usually darkened) tooth; toothache when chewing or biting; teeth sensitivity (especially when in contact with hot of cold foods); gum swelling and abscess on the gums.
Although you may be tempted to ignore your root canal symptoms or put off treatment, you need to understand that fixing the problem early is the best way to avoid more painful episodes later. A root canal treatment may also end up saving your tooth – which is more cost effective than treating it with restorative work and artificial teeth later.
A root canal treatment helps to relieve your painful symptoms and save your natural tooth.
