Our Work

Endodontics (Root Canal)

Root Canal Therapy is an Endodontic treatment which is used to save a tooth. It is carried out when the inner most part of the tooth, called ‘the pulp’ becomes badly decayed or infected.

If left untreated, the bacterial infection will spread to other areas in the mouth, causing swelling of an abscess & can lead to tooth loss.

Tooth Structure:

The tooth anatomy is made up of 3 parts:

  • Enamel – The hard outer layer of the tooth.
  • Dentine – This forms the core and gives the basic shape to the tooth, which supports the enamel; it is softer than the enamel but harder than bone.
  • Pulp – Is the central part of the tooth which contains nerves and blood vessels and lies within the root canal.

Causes of Pulp Damage

Reasons why the pulp may be damaged:

  • Untreated tooth decay – This will cause bacteria to spread through the tooth enamel, dentine and into the pulp.
  • Trauma – A severe injury or crack that affects the pulp.
  • Severe Gum Disease – The gum detaches itself from the tooth, creating a gap between the tooth and gum. Bacteria gets trapped and infects the pulp.
  • Habitual tooth grinding (Bruxism)

Symptoms for Root Canal Treatment

The following warning signs indicate that will you need RCT:

  • Significant toothache when biting or chewing
  • Tenderness or inflammation of the gum area
  • Facial Swelling
  • Discolouration or darkening of the tooth
  • Sensitivity to hot or cold drinks or food
  • Loosening of the tooth
  • Formation of an abscess

The Procedure

Dr Kanowitz will assess your symptoms & thoroughly examine your teeth. This will help him to plan for RCT.

Treatment may be completed over a single or multiple visits

The root canal is cleaned from active decay and a medication is placed to stop the infection. It is carefully shaped and a sterile filling is then placed to seal the canal.
Diagnostic and treatment x-rays may be taken throughout the procedure. The tooth is then permanently sealed with a long-lasting barrier material.

Following RCT, Dr. Kanowitz strongly recommends a crown to be placed over the tooth, in order to provide protection and strength to the tooth structure.

Looking after your teeth

Good oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups is essential for gums to remain healthy and ensure they last a lifetime.
