This was the best experience I ever had at a dentist. The reason for my visit was a broken tooth which already had an inlay. My expectations were exceeded as it was all fixed perfectly in ONE single session. The staff was really friendly and professional.

Thank you Dr. Rita Nel and your team for the great experience and quality service I received.
I am pleased with your professional and personable service.
Your associate dentist is the first dentist who paused to ask me if anything hurt and it was the first time I had totally pain-free dentistry.

Root Canal Treatment 

  • Root canal treatment, also known as endodontics, is the procedure necessary to save a tooth when its nerve is damaged.
  • This damage can be caused by decay, excessive grinding, large fillings, or even after certain dental treatments like fillings or crowns.

When Do You Need a Root Canal?

  • If a toothache is keeping you up at night, it’s likely due to an abscess and the tooth needs a root canal treatment.
  • Sensitivity to heat often indicates nerve damage.

The Procedure

Despite what you might think, a root canal treatment is generally painless. Here’s what happens:

  • The dentist removes the damaged nerve cells from the tooth’s canals. Thanks to advanced technology like the Zeiss microscope, even the tiniest canals are detected and treated.
  • The canals are cleaned, shaped, and disinfected, using files and instruments.
  • Biolase Waterlase finishes the procedure. 
  • The canals are then dried, filled, and sealed with a special material to promote healing and prevent future infections.

After the Treatment

  • Most people experience no pain after the procedure, although a small percentage may feel some discomfort. This can be managed with medications like Cataflam and Panado.
  • It’s essential to avoid chewing on the treated side until the tooth is fully restored with a crown or porcelain overlay.
