Root Canals in Kingsley

female patient in dental treatmentMany people have a fear of root canals and have heard horror stories about them—but those days are a thing of the past. At Serene Smiles Perth, we have decades of experience performing comfortable, pain-free root canals.

Who Needs a Root Canal?

You may need a root canal if you have an infection that has affected the pulp of the tooth. Certain symptoms

  • A severe toothache
  • Hot or cold sensitivity
  • Swollen gum tissue
  • Darkening of the tooth

The Process

The first step is to determine whether the tooth needs root canal treatment. We’ll do a thorough examination, including X-rays, to determine a plan of action. We typically do a cleaning first, to ensure the mouth is clean and healthy.

Then we’ll do the root canal procedure with sedation. This involves removing the infected pulp and nerves of the tooth, then sealing the tooth. We provide multiple options for sedation to ensure that you are completely numb and do not feel a thing. For back teeth, a root canal is usually followed by placing a crown on the tooth.


Will it hurt?

We offer a variety of sedation options to suit every patient’s needs. We want you to be completely numb during the process, and we will not proceed if you have any discomfort. We will check if you’re feeling anything—if you are, we will give more anaesthesia.

How long will the crown last?

If placed straightaway, crowns have a 95% success rate over ten years. Heavy grinding or poor oral hygiene can affect this. If you grind or clench, we can prescribe a splint to protect your dental restorations.
