Pain-Free Advanced Root Canal Treatment – It’s Straightforward to Save Your Tooth!

22 JUNE 2021

Save Your Natural Tooth with Pain-Free Advanced Root Canal Treatment

A root canal can save a badly damaged tooth, and advanced laser root canal treatment can do it painlessly with a routine procedure and fast recovery.

Laser root canal treatment is minimally invasive because it uses a focused light beam (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) to target infected or decayed tissue in tooth pulp – the most important part of a tooth, consisting of blood vessels, large nerves and connective tissue.

The procedure is so straightforward that it typically takes only about 30 minutes in a single appointment.

When You Might Need Root Canal Treatment

Unlike a traditional root canal, pain-free laser dentistry is done without a drill and gives your dentist greater precision and control over the procedure.

A root canal is often necessary to fix a cracked tooth or a tooth with deep decay. You may need a root canal to repair damage to tooth pulp caused by:

  • Decay that has penetrated the outer layers of your tooth.
  • A physical blow to a tooth.
  • Repeated dental work on the same tooth.

Without treatment, a root canal disorder can result in a tooth abscess that can spread infection to other areas of your body, posing a serious risk to your overall health. If pulp is destroyed, it cannot regenerate, and the affected tooth will have to be removed.

Symptoms of a Root Canal Problem

The most obvious symptom of a root canal issue is pain, which can be moderate to severe, fluctuating over the course of a day. Other indications you might need a root canal include:

  • Swollen and tender gums.
  • Dark-coloured gums.
  • Tooth discoloration – a sign that the nerve is dying.
  • Oversensitivity to hot or cold drinks and food.
  • Sore, swollen gums.

In some cases, there may be no apparent symptoms of a root canal problem.

Why Root Canal Patients Choose Laser Treatment

Many people with a serious tooth problem look to laser root canal treatment because of its many advantages over a regular root canal.

These benefits include:

  • Instant relief from the pain of a diseased tooth.
  • 100 percent pain-free procedure.
  • Preserving more healthy structure of the affected tooth.
  • Limiting the need for local anaesthesia.
  • No distressing sensations associated with drill use.

After the procedure, you should get less discomfort and bleeding, and there’s less risk of infection. It’s a good idea to avoid sticky or crunchy foods for a while after treatment. Any minor discomfort can be managed with over-the-counter pain relief medication.

In the longer term, it’s important to keep up a good routine of oral hygiene and get regular dental check-ups and professional cleanings.

Laser Root Canal Cost

A root canal can provide a more affordable alternative to having a tooth replaced with a dental implant.

The cost of laser root canal treatment varies in the same way that no two teeth are exactly the same.

Factors that affect laser root canal treatment include:

  • Level of infection.
  • Tooth position.
  • Number of tooth roots.
  • Complexities of the procedure.

Pricing at Laser Root Canal Treatment in Sydney starts from $950, with interest-free payment plans to spread the cost over several months from $35 a week.

Making Your Decision

If you have significant tooth decay, a dentist experienced in advanced tooth restoration can help you decide for sure whether a root canal or an implant is right for you.

If root canal treatment is your best option, it will also save you money as well as preserve your natural tooth – a laser root canal costs around $950 while a dental implant will typically set you back about $3,000.
