What is a root canal treatment?

Endodontic therapy — or root canal treatment — is an effective way to preserve teeth that would otherwise need to be extracted. By preserving your tooth, you can maintain natural biting function and tooth alignment. Thanks to modern techniques, getting a root canal is just as straightforward as having a filling or crown fitted.

Root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth when the pulp – the soft tissue inside the root canal – becomes inflamed or infected. Left untreated, an infected tooth can cause pain and lead to an abscess as infection spreads to the surrounding bone causing swelling. Tooth restoration is achieved by removing the dead or dying nerve causing the pain inside your tooth, cleaning, filling and sealing the inside of the tooth.

As the tooth is weakened and susceptible to fracture, a crown is necessary to protect and restore the tooth to full function like any other tooth.


Why early treatment for root canal therapy is best

Lillybrook Dental always encourages and educates valued members of its community to be dentistry conscious – for their own health, appearance and wellbeing, as well as to reduce the cost of treatment by taking earliest action. This means being informed about the signs, alert to the need for treatment and being prepared to act promptly to save pain and discomfort.

Symptoms indicating you may need root canal therapy include, prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold, tenderness to touch and chewing, discoloration of the tooth, and swelling, draining of an abscess, and tenderness in the lymph nodes as well as nearby bone and gum tissues. Sometimes, however, there are no symptoms, making regular visits and a good oral hygiene regime the best way to avoid root canal therapy.


Is root canal treatment painful?

Modern treatment techniques and pain management ensure most patients find they are comfortable during the procedure. The team at Lillybrook Dental will walk with you every step of the way, managing any concerns or anxiety you have.

Mostly root canals can be treated in one visit, though some may require multiple visits. You can take assurance from the knowledge that most endodontically treated teeth last as long as other natural teeth and most teeth can be treated.

During a root canal procedure, we numb the tooth to prevent any sensitivity. The nerve is accessed and removed. Then, the open chamber is sealed off to prevent infection from recurring. You can think of getting a root canal similar to a filling that extends down into the root of your tooth.

Occasionally, there are reasons why a tooth can’t be saved. It may be because the root canals are not accessible, the root is severely fractured, the tooth doesn’t have adequate bone support, or the tooth cannot be restored. However, recent advances are making it possible to save teeth that previously would have been lost.


Concerned about root canal treatment? Let the Lillybrook Dental team help.


When to get a root canal treatment?

Concerns about root canal treatment can prevent people with an inflamed or infected tooth from seeking help when they need. Usually linked to the concerns about the physical pain of treatment and the financial cost of restoration, delaying treatment is rarely the ideal treatment pathway.

Root canals are recommended on teeth that are:


  • Severely decayed
  • Abscessed
  • Cracked (to the root)
  • Dying or hypersensitive

I’ve been to many different dentists over the years, and I would have to say that this is up there with the best! The staff are so professional, and yet so very friendly. The dentist himself, was also very friendly and did such a great job. I would highly recommend this dental surgery


I can’t recommend Dr Raj and the team at Lillybrook Dental enough! I was 35 weeks pregnant and developed a terrible toothache (the worst timing!), they fit me in quickly and did everything they could to save the tooth, giving me all options and no pressure. I ended up needing a root canal and crown and was very upset and worried about the pain, they reassured me and despite the outcome for my tooth I had a great experience. The crown has been fitted and I am so happy with the end product. Highly recommend!


Having been to various practices over time, and addressing issues with a “patch-up” approach, it was time to consult with a Dentist who could advise on a treatment plan that would provide longterm results. A friend recommended Lillybrook Dental. After a very thorough initial appointment Dr Raj put together a staged treatment plan to restore my teeth to their former glory. Six months later, thanks to Dr Raj and his team, I have my smile back. Most importantly I can eat the food I want without any fear of causing days of pain to my teeth or gums. I am so glad I put my trust in Lillybrook Dental. Thanks!


From the moment I walked in until the moment I left I felt very cared for by all of the staff I encountered. Everything was explained in detail as to what my options were and what the best choice would be for my treatmemt. Extremely accommodating and so kind, I felt completely at ease. With payment options such as Afterpay, Zippay and Openpay available, making it much more comfortable when it comes time to pay the bill.


I am a very anxious patient and Dr Raji is very calming and gentle in her care with me. She is also very patient with me and would highly recommend coming to Lillybrook Dental Surgery as the whole crew is lovely !


Now I’m terrified when it comes to dentists!

They girls at lillybrook dental took a terrible experience I had last week with another dentist (I was a crying mess) and now I have a clean plan on what needs to be done from here out!!

Dr Raj, Shevaux and the girls were so fantastic, understanding, helpful and explained everything in a way I could understand!
I’m so very grateful for all your help!

I highly recommend Lillybrook Dental Surgery!
5 out of 5 stars without a doubt!!


Dr Raj and his team are always gentle, professional and very efficient. My husband and I have both had extractions done and Raj is so proficient at this.

The team are so kind and assuring as well which helps you feel calm. We totally recommend them for all your family dental care.


I have nothing put praise for the friendliness of Ena on the front desk she is just the right person for the job. Then we have Dr Raj who has been very kind and gentle with doing any dental work on my teeth. He explains every bit of work that needs to be done in layman terms which is great and his dental nurse is very caring.

Thanks for the great experience and will continue visiting your Surgery .


Had an amazing experience at Lillybrook Dental after not seeing a dentist for years. All of the staff were very welcoming and supportive throughout the whole session. Couldn’t recommend them enough


We are so pleased with our experience at Lillybrook Dental – the whole team is so professional and friendly, and are particularly wonderful in dealing with children. We felt comfortable throughout our whole experience – the waiting area is calming and welcoming, and the staff were quick to set nerves at ease. We felt that we received the highest standard of dental care – highly recommended.
