What is root canal treatment?

We offer root canal treatment to address various tooth conditions, such as infection or nerve damage. This procedure is recommended for teeth causing pain while eating, exhibiting abscesses or experiencing persistent sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures. Opting for root canal treatment allows you to enjoy a durable and healthy set of teeth for years to come.

During the root canal procedure we carefully clean and disinfect the inner chamber of the tooth where the affected nerve resides. While some cases can be completed in a single session, it is more common for the procedure to be carried out over 2-3 visits.

What to expect if you need a root canal treatment


Root canals are routine dental procedures that are carried out by our dentists on a daily basis. The treatment typically spans over 2 to 3 appointments, scheduled a few weeks apart which allows for the correct monitoring needed for optimal dental care. Each session involves the administration of a local anesthetic ensuring a painless and comfortable experience.

Timely action is key to achieving a successful outcome. If you notice any irregularities in your tooth, it is imperative to seek dental attention promptly. Delaying treatment can lead to more complex situations, such as the development of a significant abscess or a severe toothache. These circumstances can pose challenges in effectively numbing the tooth. In such cases, interim pain relief and antibiotics may be prescribed before proceeding with the root canal procedure.

At Westcare Dental, we prioritize your well-being and strive to provide a professional and comfortable environment for your root canal treatment. Our experienced team is dedicated to delivering personalized care, addressing your concerns, and ensuring your utmost comfort throughout the process. Take the first step towards restoring your oral health by scheduling an appointment with us today.

Root Canal FAQs

Are root canal treatments painful?

Root canal treatments are typically not painful as patients receive local anesthesia to ensure their comfort. Rest assured that your comfort and well-being are our top priorities. Schedule an appointment with Westcare Dental today and experience the gentle and compassionate care that you deserve for your root canal treatment.

Is a Root canal treatment safe?

When it comes to root canal procedures we put your safety first and the use of a rubber dam by the dentist plays a vital role. This protective barrier is essential as it prevents contamination of the tooth during treatment by saliva, which contains a multitude of bacteria that can jeopardize the success of the root canal.

At Westcare Dental, patient safety is our top priority. Our experienced dentists recognise the importance of employing a rubber dam throughout root canal procedures to maintain a sterile environment and enhance treatment outcomes. Rest assured that we are committed to upholding rigorous protocols and adhering to best practices to deliver the highest level of care.
