Root Canal Treatment Armadale, WA
When a tooth is infected, there are a variety of treatments you can consider to save the tooth. Root canal therapy is a common treatment option. It is also referred to as endodontic therapy. The goal of this treatment is to save the tooth. It involves removing all of the infected, damaged, and dead tissue from inside the tooth. The resulting hole is usually filled and the tooth is sealed so that it can continue to function.
Here at Prospect Road Dental Surgery, we’re proud to offer world-class endodontic treatment for all of our patients. Our Armadale dentists have had extensive experience in root canal treatment, giving them the knowledge and ability to treat patients with confidence.

What Is Involved In A Root Canal Therapy?
A root canal therapy is often needed when the pulp of your tooth becomes infected. The infection is caused by bacteria. When this happens, the dentin of your tooth becomes infected, too. This is usually the case with teeth that have been badly damaged. It can also happen when a person has a tooth that gets cavities too easily or regularly.
But not all root canal therapies are the same. And that’s because each one has to be individualized to your own case and specific needs. When this procedure is performed, your dentist drills a hole into the infected pulp of your tooth. Then they clean out the pulp and nerve of the tooth to remove any infection inside it. After that, they fill it with a disinfectant and seal it off with dental filling.

FAQ About Root Canal Therapy in Armadale
It all depends on what needs to be done. The more involved it is, the higher the cost will be. In Australia, a molar root canal with three canals can cost up to $2,760 without a crown and up to $4,760 with a crown. Most root canals have multiple abscesses and require additional work on the surrounding teeth.
Deciding whether to have a second root canal isn’t an easy decision and should only be considered if there are signs of infection, such as swelling or pain at the nerve inside the tooth.
Root canal surgery involves the removal of the infected tooth's pulp, which is the soft center part of a tooth. In most cases, this can be treated with a root canal treatment, where all the nerves and blood vessels that come with that pulp are preserved, but sometimes even these can be removed because they have caused too much pain or trouble.
Extraction is when your dentist removes the tooth from its socket (the part where it attaches to your jaw). If you have an abscessed tooth, it may make sense to have the whole tooth extracted and then to do a root canal treatment on the socket later, once it has healed. It may also be the only option if the nerves have been severely destroyed by infection.
