About Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment, or endodontic treatment, is a procedure whereby the pulp of the tooth is removed and the inside of the tooth cleaned and sealed. Root canal treatment is performed on teeth that are infected or badly broken-down and is generally the last resort to saving a tooth.
Root canal treatment can be completed by a general dentist or an endodontist (root canal specialist). General dentists are able to perform root canal treatment for many cases, however complex cases are referred to endodontists.
When you are seen by an endodontist, you can be assured that they have the appropriate training to manage difficult treatments or retreatments of root canals. Studies have shown that endodontic treatment completed by endodontists have a higher success rate than when treated by a general dentist. This is true for both initial root canal therapy as well as retreatment of root canal therapy. So although the treatment cost may be higher, this is outweighed by the increased longevity.
At Aria Dental all our root canal treatments are performed by Dr Jadav.
- An endodontist is a dentist who has completed further postgraduate training to become qualified as a specialist.
- At Aria Dental, Dr Nilesh Jadav has completed a Masters in Endodontics from the University of Manchester, UK. He is recognised as an endodontist in the UK, but in Australia he would have to complete further university study. Similarly, dentists in Australia are not able to practice as dentists in the UK without further study.
- Endodontists are not only trained to manage complex endodontic treatments, they generally use advanced equipment such as a high magnification microscope. At Aria Dental, Dr Jadav uses a Carl Zeiss Meditec microscope with 20x magnification. Flexible rotary files and electronic apex locators are also used.
Our root canal services are offered and used by patients from anywhere in Western Australia. In particular and because of our Perth CBD location we are easily accessible for patients in West Perth, East Perth, South Perth, North Perth, Subiaco and surrounding suburbs.
