Endodontics, also known as a root canal, is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that becomes infected and would otherwise have to be removed.
Root canal treatment takes several appointments, depending on how complex the tooth is and how long the infection takes to clear.
Root canal treatment has a high success rate, and this rate is often improved by placing a protective crown on the tooth after the root canal treatment is completed. This will ensure the integrity of the root canal treatment as well as the remaining tooth structure.
At Terrigal Dental, we offer specialist endodontic technology through our microscope, which allows us to perform high-quality and successful root canal treatment.
We firmly believe that the best dental services can be provided only with the most up-to-date technology. This is exactly why we have digital X-ray machines that allow for X-rays with the lowest radiation dose, pain-free electronic anaesthetic delivery and microscopes that ensure that every treatment is as precise as possible.
We at Terrigal Dental also believe that keeping patients waiting creates stress and anxiety. For this reason, we very rarely run late, which means that you will not be spending too much time in our patient lounge – even though it is a very nice and relaxing space.
At Terrigal Dental, we are a progressive practice, wholeheartedly committed to our community of patients. Our welcoming, professional and caring team strive to ensure patients are cared for ethically and meticulously, providing clear, honest communication of all options for optimal personalised dentistry.BOOK APPOINTMENT
