Root Canal

The Art of Root Canal Therapy: A Solution to Dental Pain and Infection

Root Canal is a dental procedure aimed at treating and saving a severely infected or damaged tooth. It involves removing the infected pulp from the tooth’s root canal, cleaning and disinfecting the area, and sealing it to prevent further infection. Root Canal treatment helps alleviate pain, restore dental health, and preserve natural teeth.

Common Causes and Signs for Root Canal Treatment

  • Deep dental decay or cavities reaching the tooth’s pulp
  • Traumatic tooth injury or fracture exposing the pulp
  • Repeated dental procedures on the tooth
  • Dental abscess or infection spreading to the root canal
  • Cracked or damaged teeth allow bacteria to reach the pulp 

How Does Root Canal work

During a Root Canal procedure, the dentist or endodontist (root canal specialist) removes the infected or inflamed pulp from the tooth. The root canal is cleaned, shaped, and disinfected. Afterward, the root canal is filled with a biocompatible material called gutta-percha and sealed. Finally, a dental restoration like a crown is placed to protect and restore the tooth’s functionality. 


  • Conventional Root Canal Therapy
  • Endodontic Retreatment (in case of a previously failed root canal)
  • Apicoectomy (surgical root canal procedure)
  • Pulpotomy (partial removal of the pulp in baby teeth)
  • Apexification (encouraging root development in immature teeth)

Treatment steps

  1. Dental examination, including X-rays, to assess the tooth’s condition
  2. Local anesthesia administration to ensure patient comfort during the procedure
  3. Creation of a small access hole to reach the tooth’s pulp chamber
  4. Removal of infected or damaged pulp, cleaning, and disinfection of the root canal
  5. Filling the root canal with gutta-percha, sealing the access hole, and placing a dental restoration

Session: A session of a Root Canal refers to a single visit or appointment dedicated to performing the procedure on a specific tooth.

Duration:  1 to 2 hours 

Painful or Painless: Modern Root Canal procedures are typically performed under local anesthesia, ensuring that the treatment is virtually painless. However, patients may experience mild discomfort or sensitivity during the recovery period, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.

We usually recommend a course of between 6-8 sessions to see results that will last.

During the course of having laser hair removal sessions, we will only allow you to shave or trim your hair. This is because waxing and plucking will pull the hair out of the root meaning the laser will be less effective at your next session.
