What is Root Canal Treatment?

Patients with already several or completely missing teeth, can have between 4 and 6 dental implants with fixed teeth supported on them. This not only transforms a smile but greatly enhances chewing capacity!

What is a Specialist Root Canal Dentist (Endodontist)?

Specialist Endodontist is a dentist who specialises in saving teeth. Endodontists receive many years of advanced education in Endodontics following training as a general dentist.

Final Restoration of Tooth After Root Canal Treatment?

We go extra mile to save your teeth!

We advise that between two to six weeks after your root canal treatment is completed to have your final restoration (normally a crown) done unless advised differently by us.

  • This amount of time will allow most of your tenderness to subside before having further procedures done on your tooth.
  • If your tooth does not get the necessary final restoration (crown or filling) and the temporary filling wears out, the root canal will become infected and need retreatment, microsurgery or extraction.
  • A crown is often the ideal restorative option following root canal treatment, especially when a large amount of your natural tooth structure has been lost.

Dental Crowns serve a dual purpose:

  • Firstly, crowns reinforce and support the remaining tooth structure, so as to prevent the
    generation or continued extension of cracks.
  • Think of a crown like a “hard hat” to protect your tooth.
  • Secondly, crowns can be an aesthetic option to replace missing tooth structure.


In certain cases, a tooth may lack sufficient structure for a crown to be placed. In such cases, a post may be necessary for additional support.

If only a minimal amount of your tooth is missing, a conventional filling may be all that is required to restore your tooth to its natural appearance and function.

Dr Shalini will advise you of the best option for your tooth following an assessment of your treatment records
and x-rays.

Your Experience

  • When you visit us for the first time, we will normally arrange for you to have a consultation with Specialist Endodontist, Dr Shalini.
  • During this consultation we may need to take xrays so we can fully assess your condition and present you with a full range of treatment options.
  • Once we have discussed your situation and you have decided upon the treatment option that best meets your needs, we will then arrange one or more appointment sessions in which your treatment will be carried out.

Endodontic Re-treatment

Occasionally a tooth may not heal as expected after initial treatment

This can happen for a variety of reasons, the most common of which are listed in this section. A re-treated tooth can function well for years, or even a full lifetime. However, once a tooth has been previously treated, the success rates of further re-treatments drop to about 80%.

Main Reasons for Re-treatment

  1. Difficulty in cleaning very fine, narrow canals, leaving unclean portions of the root.

  2. Complicated canal anatomy, perhaps with extra, undetected canals.

  3.  Further bacterial leakage around the filling/crown or a fracture allowing contamination.
