Completing RCT - What I need to do after pain has gone?

After three long appointments and now that you are finally out of pain. You may think the tooth is now fully root canal treated with no further action. If left without a crown as a helmet it is like having surgery and you say to the surgeon “dont worry about stitching up, I’ll just walk out”. Bring inside the mouth it is often hard to tell, but if you dont complete the treatment with a crown you risk loosing the whole tooth. In worst cases, even after all this investment, you may have to extract the tooth as it could still develop bacteria and infection into the roots. Meaning, you need an extraction + an implant.

Keeping your natural tooth as long as you can is always better than getting an implant.At Abc Dental we offer same day crowns too. We also have our own inhouse lab.

Treating RCT - What I need to know when I'm in pain?

Firstly, we need to detect if it is root canal treatment that you require. Sometimes, it's just that you were brushing too hard and you just need to brush softly around the gums. If the pain is throbbing and it's keeping you awake in the night. Please TAKE PAIN KILLERS don't try to win the pain cause trust us. You will loose. Call us immediately we are open all 7 days (02) 8383 1400 and book an appointment with our dentists. Root Canal is a very common procedure that dentists treat almost every day of the week. Sometimes even three times a day. For patients, it is painful and expensive, and Abc Dental hears you. At ABC Dental, we seek to turn even this intensive dental procedure into one that promotes relaxation and comfort while remaining cost-effective.

Our preventive approach to care is designed to proactively monitor decay during checkups every 6 months. By doing so, we can prevent tooth decay from reaching the roots to preserve your smile. If you find yourself in a situation where decay has reached the nerves of a tooth, there’s no need to worry. Instead, you can have peace of mind turning to ABC Dental and our advanced root canal therapy techniques.

The full root canal treatment comes in 3 stages.

1st Appointment Usually includes two stages.

Stage 1: Expiration of the Nerve
Stage 2: Expiration of the Nerve and Obturation - filling the tooth with Medication and Temporary Cap until the root is fully cleaned from bacteria and infection.

2nd Appointment Usually includes Stage 3 Prep for crown
By this stage, you would have completely be out of pain. But don't be fooled! It is still very prone to developing a new infection that can cause more pain than the last time. At this appointment, you will need to prep the tooth to cap it with a crown. But until the crown is made you will be provided with a temporary crown. You must come back to the crown insert. At Abc Dental we offer CEREC same day crowns that may not require you to come back for a third appointment. More on this in the next blog.
