With standard root canal procedures, patients often experience fear, leading to even more discomfort. With laser dentistry, Melbourne patients experience the best in leading-edge laser technology to reduce discomfort and promote faster healing.
When the soft tissue inside your tooth—the pulp—becomes damaged or diseased, you need a root canal treatment. It’s the only way to relieve yourself from this painful condition.
Standard Root Canal Treatment—the Fear Factor
In a standard root canal procedure, your dentist removes the diseased tissue inside your tooth, including its roots. After he removes the tissue, he disinfects the area with powerful bacteria killers, such as sodium hypochlorite. Finally, he fills the hollowed-out areas with inert filling materials to preserve your tooth’s structural integrity.
Most standard root canal (endodontic) treatments are successful; however, there is about a five per cent chance of failure, requiring yet another procedure. In the worst cases, you might even need to have the tooth extracted, replacing it with a bridge or implant.
Needless to say, when it comes to standard root canal treatment, Vermont and Melbourne patients dread this procedure more than any other.
With Laser Dentistry, Root Canal Treatments Lose the Scare Factor
With laser dentistry, Melbourne and Vermont patients need to fear no more. Laser dentistry has become the treatment of choice for dental patients in the know. With a dental laser, your dentist can clean, shape, and disinfect your root canal with less discomfort than an old-school treatment.
Miniature, flexible laser tips allow a laser to reach inside the tooth to clean out your root canal. In fact, research shows that laser treatment is extremely efficient at reducing the bacteria in an infected root canal.
More Comfort, Faster Healing, Fewer Complications
A laser root canal procedure is minimally invasive, which minimises discomfort. Not only is it a more comfortable treatment, but it also maximises anti-bacterial effectiveness. With a laser root canal treatment, you’ll enjoy faster healing time, with most patients needing less pain medication afterwards.
Best of all, with laser endodontic treatment, most patients have fewer complications. To learn more about how a laser root canal treatment can be the solution for your painful root canal infection, contact our caring Cosmetic and Laser Dental Centre team today.
