Our Root Canal Epping Procedure
A root canal treatment is usually performed over multiple dental appointments. If you’re looking to book a root canal Epping consultation with Dentaservice, you can expect the procedure to span over separate appointments. A root canal endodontic treatment must be prepared both mechanically and chemically. X-rays must also be taken prior to the procedure to gauge the extent of tooth damage or decay. The final appointment of your procedure is usually once your dental crown has been developed and is ready for placement.
Here is a step-by-step overview of our root canal procedure so you know just what to expect for your own appointment:
- Give local anaesthesia – this is to numb the infected tooth and surrounding gums to ensure that the procedure is painless for the patient.
- Place dental dam – this small rubber dam helps isolate the impacted tooth to help facilitate root canal treatment.
- Drill access hole – doing so will ensure that the pulp chamber of the tooth is accessible.
- Remove infected tooth pulp – this is done with the use of great precision and specialised dental equipment like an endodontic file.
- Shape and fill the root canal – once the infected pulp has been removed, the emptied pulp chamber and root canals are disinfected before the new dental filling and gutta-percha are added.
- Seal the impacted tooth – as crowns must be specially developed for each patient, it’s common for dentists to seal up treated teeth with a temporary protective filling.
- Place crown – your final appointment following your procedure is purely for adding your new crown to the treated tooth. We recommend having a crown placed in order to protect the tooth.

Key Benefits of a Root Canal Treatment
The primary benefit to opting for our root canal dentist over a tooth extraction is that you can retain your natural tooth even in the event of tooth damage or decay. Our root canal Epping professionals will aim to retain the natural tooth, so patients who undergo a root canal won’t have to worry about bone loss or jawbone degeneration.
Similarly, undergoing a root canal to help correct any signs of damage or infection in a tooth can help reduce the risks of neighbouring teeth becoming infected as well. To keep your root canal and any root canal posts or crowns in good health, you’ll need to make sure that your natural tooth receives exceptional ongoing care.

Root Canal Treatment FAQs
Questions about root canals? No problem. Here are the most commonly asked questions our dentists receive.
What is a root canal?
A root canal is a dental procedure performed at Dentaservice to treat infection or damage in a tooth’s root. It involves removing the damaged area, cleaning, disinfecting, and then filling and sealing the tooth. This procedure helps save the tooth and prevent further decay or infection.
How do you know if you need a root canal?
Inside every tooth, there is a hollow centre that contains what is known as tooth pulp. This sensitive tissue primarily consists of nerves and blood vessels that provide nutrients and oxygen to each of your teeth. As a result, your tooth pulp rests in the root of your tooth is known as the root canal. If your tooth pulp makes contact with the root of your teeth, the infected tooth pulp can then go on to cause further damage to that tooth from the inside out.
Common indications to know when a root canal may be necessary include:
- Severe toothache – particularly when chewing or applying pressure to the tooth and sensitivity to or cold that persists long after the temperature source is removed.
- Swelling or tenderness of the gums – where you see inflammation surrounding the tooth, or more extensive swelling around your face and neck.
- Visible tooth decay – A visible hole, chip, crack or discolouration in the tooth can also signal the need for a root canal.
It’s crucial to remember that some cases may not present obvious symptoms, emphasising the importance of regular dental check-ups at Dentaservice to detect and address issues early or prevent them entirely.
How long does a root canal take?
A root canal at Dentaservice usually requires two to three visits, each lasting about 60-90 minutes. The duration depends on the condition of your tooth and the complexity of the procedure.
Do root canals hurt during or after the procedure?
Our team of root canal dentists use local anaesthesia, the procedure itself is virtually painless. As for after-effects following the procedure, patients can actually expect next to no pain or discomfort. This is primarily because our root canal dentists intend to remove the source of pain, like an infection.
Although no pain is to be expected, you may experience some mild tooth sensitivity for the first few days following your root canal treatment. If you are still experiencing tooth sensitivity a week after your procedure or are experiencing any other types of acute pain or discomfort, then it’s highly recommended that you consult with your dentist to determine the cause of this pain.
How long does a root canal last?
With proper care and oral hygiene, a root canal from Dentaservice can last 10 to 15 years. Regular check-ups are essential to ensure the longevity of the treatment.
