Endodontic, or root canal, therapy is a highly successful dental care solution for teeth that have become seriously infected due to decay, periodontal (gum) disease, or injury.

At Paragon Dental, our primary concern is achieving and preserving your good dental health and root canal therapy offers an excellent opportunity to save an infected tooth.  We understand the concerns a patient may have prior to undergoing a root canal procedure and we will take all the time necessary to discuss the processes involved so each patient will feel as comfortable as possible.

Your level of comfort is very important to us and we offer several anaesthetic options, including a specially formulated gel for your gums, to ensure a positive experience for you.

Your Paragon dentist will carefully explain the process that is a root canal therapy, as we believe there is more opportunity for you to be comfortable with your treatment if you understand what is being done and why.

The purpose of root canal therapy is to gently cleanse the infection from the nerve in the canals of the tooth, and then carefully place a sterilising medication into the canals. This protects the tooth from further infection.  Next, a composite resin filling is set and your tooth is protected and free of infection.

The dedicated dental professionals at Paragon Dental are every ready to take comprehensive measures to ensure and secure your comfort and your good dental health.
