EndoSure have more than 30 years' experience in diagnosis and root canal treatment. We treat these types of problems every day whereas general dentists perform on average less than two such treatments a week.
We offer flexibility in accommodating emergency cases, so delays in treatment are kept to a minimum and you can be relieved of dental pain quickly.
Because we limit our practice solely to endodontic treatment, EndoSure are efficient and precise. This equates to positive experiences and faster healing for you.
We use state-of-the-art technology such as operating microscopes, digital imaging, ultrasonic instrumentation and fibre optics, to treat you quickly and comfortably.
You’re probably reading this because your dentist or endodontist said you have a diseased or injured tooth. If so, rest assured that in the majority of cases, your tooth can be saved with endodontic treatment. Learn about the treatment options available to you, so that you can discuss them with your endodontist and make the best choice for your oral health.
Endodontic treatment helps you maintain your natural smile, continue eating the foods you love and limits the need for ongoing dental work. With proper care, most teeth that have had root canal treatment can last as long as other natural teeth and often for a lifetime.
It is normal to feel some tenderness in the area for a few days after your root canal treatment as your body undergoes the natural healing process. You may also feel some tenderness in your jaw and limitation of opening. This is due to keeping your jaw open for an extended period of time or possibly as a result of the local anaesthetic injection/s. These symptoms are temporary and usually respond very well to over-the-counter pain medications. It is important for you to follow the instructions on how to take these medications. Remember that narcotic medications, if prescribed, may make you drowsy, and caution should be exercised in operating dangerous machinery or driving a car after taking them.
Your tooth may continue to feel slightly different from your other teeth for some time after your root canal treatment has been completed. However, if you have severe pain or pressure that lasts more than a few days, contact EndoSure.
Root canal treatment is only one step in returning your tooth to full function. A proper final restoration of the tooth is extremely important in ensuring long-term success.
We will instruct you as to when to contact your dentist for further recommended restorative procedures. Root filled premolars and molars will requires full cuspal coverage for long term protection from biting forces. In some cases this can be achieved with existing available materials but in many cases a precision fabricated crown will be required (porcelain, ceramic, metal overlay or full crown). Some teeth may also require full coverage crowns for functional or aesthetic reasons. If you have any queries please contact us.
The tooth that has had appropriate endodontic treatment followed by a proper restoration can last as long as your other natural teeth. After the tooth has been restored, you need only practice good oral hygiene, including brushing, flossing, regular checkups and cleanings.
Your dentist or EndoSure may periodically x-ray the tooth to ensure that healing has occurred. Occasionally, a tooth that has undergone endodontic treatment does not heal or pain continues. At times, the tooth may become painful or diseased months or even years after successful treatment. Often when this occurs, repeating the endodontic procedure or a surgical approach can still save the tooth.
