Root Canal

Root Canal 2017-10-27T13:00:08+00:00

If a tooth is damaged by decay or injury, the canals inside the root of the tooth may become infected.  If the infection is not treated, it can lead to severe pain, abscess and tooth loss.  Fortunately, the infection can be removed from the tooth and the tooth can be saved and restored to normal function.  This treatment is also known as a Root Canal Therapy (RCT).

We recommend a crown to be placed as a final measure to prevent reinfection and fracture of the root canal treated tooth.

WHY MONA VALE DENTAL?
Pain free – we ensure that all root canal treatments are carried out with complete anesthesia of the area, so you won’t feel any pain.

Attention to detail – We complete all endodontic work under magnification to ensure treatment is carried out with utmost precision and accuracy.

The best information – We use our CBCT x-ray to produce a high definition 3D image of your tooth’s canals before any treatment is started. This reduces treatment time and greatly increases the quality of the final result.

Clean instruments – All equipment and materials used during your procedure are 100% sterile. Many instruments used for root canal therapy are single use and disposed of immediately after use.

Safety – We use rubber dental dams to isolate the treatment area and prevent saliva, bacteria, or other materials from contaminating the tooth’s canals.

Working with Specialists – if the root canals appear very curved, thin or difficult to access, we can refer you to a local root canal Specialist (an Endodontist) for treatment before returning to us to complete the treatment.

What Our Customers Say

The team at Mona Vale Dental is not just top notch but world class. Dr. Graham has made sure he's always a master of the latest techniques. The fact that crowns and overlays can be done in a single session (without waiting to send away for molds, etc) is awesome. The quality of the work is always high. I personally have a challenging medical background and the Mona Vale Dental team is phenomenal at making sure all the specifics of my case are considered. And, on top of this, they're simply a really friendly bunch. Couldn't recommend them any more!read more

Our company designed and built the new practice environment for Dr Alistair Graham and I must say that the entire team at Mona Vale Dental were a real pleasure to work with from start to finish. They were and still are wonderful clients and people. His team are so caring and whilst we were shooting a video on location for a whole day, I saw first hand how the team greeted and looked after their patients. Wow was I impressed. The place looks amazing too and I recommend anyone in the local area to make an appointment and go and feel what it is like to be treated by such great professionals in an amazing space. We wish you all the best Dr Graham and team in your new practice.read more
