Root Canal in Balwyn
Root canal treatment is a proven solution to painful or infected teeth
Root canal procedures do not have the best of reputations. They have entered the zeitgeist as a comparison we make when describing something we really would rather not do. For many, an appointment ending with a recommendation of root canal surgery is the absolute worst case scenario.

Our goal is to get you out of pain as quickly as possible and with minimal fuss. Using a surgical microscope alongside the best available dental tools, equipment, techniques and pain relief options, we’ll be finished in next to no time. We guarantee you’ll leave us wondering what all the fuss was about!
But … why a root canal? Well, every tooth contains one or more canals filled with nerves and blood vessels. If the tissue in a canal becomes infected and is not treated properly and in good time, the infection can spread to the bone causing painful abscesses. What’s more, it could spread even further, affecting other areas of the body and leading to potentially serious complications.
Root canal therapy is one of those tried and tested tooth decay treatments dentists have been turning to for decades. It works by removing the infected tissue before it can spread, and replacing the tooth with a crown to restore its strength and function, while maintaining a natural, tooth-coloured look.
