Painless Root Canal Treatment

Root canals are tiny passageways that branch off from beneath the top of the tooth, coursing their way vertically downward, until they reach the tip of the root.  Many tooth problems involve infections that spread to the pulp, which is the inner chamber of the tooth containing blood vessels, nerves and other tissues. When the infection becomes worse, it can begin affecting the roots. A traumatic injury to a tooth can also compromise the pulp, leading to similar problems.

A diseased inner tooth brings a host of problems; pain and sensitivity are some of the first indications of a problem; but inside, a spreading infection can cause small pockets of pus to develop, leading to an abscess.

Root canal therapy is a remarkable treatment with a very high rate of success, and involves removing the diseased tissue, halting the spread of infection and restoring the healthy portion of the tooth. In fact, root canal therapy is designed to save a problem tooth; often the only alternative for treating a diseased tooth was extraction.

Mild Pain during RCT used to be expected in few cases, depending upon the severity of the infection. However, with the latest available technology used at Surry Hills Dental Care, a root canal is as comfortable as getting a filling done in a tooth. The treatment is carried out with rotary canal shapers under guidance of the digital apex locator (end of tooth) sensor. This safely prevents perforations past the root or under cleaning if the roots are particularly long or curved.  – that’s what we call Painless Root Canal Therapy. RCT’s could be one or two sitting treatments depending upon the infection in the tooth. However, with the skill and dedication of our team of dentists and the world class technology employed, your RCT may be over in as little as one SINGLE SITTING without experiencing any pain.

When is Root Canal Treatment Needed?
Some indications for Root Canal Treatment are:
The chief benefit of root canal treatment is that a tooth that otherwise might require extraction, can actually be saved to contribute to a healthy and functional dentition for many years.

  •  Severe sensitivity to hot and cold foods and sweets
  •  Spontaneous pain or throbbing while biting
  •  Pain stays for a long time after consuming cold things
  •  Pain that worsens when you lie down
  •  Tooth pain refers to pain in the head and ears as well
  •  Tooth sensitivity on consuming sweets
  •  Swelling around the tooth
  •  Severe decay or an injury that creates an abscess (infection) in the root region

Can’t recommend Dr Ellie and her friendly team enough. I usually get very anxious at dental appointments but Dr Ellie and her team made it very smooth and easy for me. She talked me through the procedure and explained every option in details. She was thorough and gentle.

Dr Ash and his friendly and relaxed team were very accommodating. They fit me in an emergency slot first thing in the morning and fixed my toothache immediately and I was able to go into work that day.. very happy with their service and price too.

I went to see my regular dentist and was referred to a specialist surgeon for removing my wisdom teeth. I was told I needed to be asleep for the procedure at a private hospital but I couldn’t afford that. My friend recommended to try Surry Hills Dental as they have a good reputation for removing wisdom teeth. I was made an appointment to see Dr. Ash. I had a consultation with their team over the phone regarding the procedure and risks and on my first visit to their lovely cozy practice I had all four of my wisdom teeth removed! I got this done in the chair with the happy gas in less than an hour for about a quarter of the price I was quoted by the specialist and hospital… I’m so grateful I found this practice and will be seeing Dr. Ash for further check ups and treatment

My experience couldn’t have been better! Dr.Wu removed all 4 wisdom teeth (not easy cases either) and made it such a relaxing, safe and quick procedure. I was quite nervous going into the appointment but immediately started to feel calm and relaxed - thank you to the friendly, personable and accommodating staff. It was an excellent environment and I weirdly I had the best time from start to finish. What was even better was my recovery. I experienced only one day of soreness and after that I healed in less than a week. I seriously couldn’t rate my experience higher.
