Severe toothache can temporarily hijack your life. Endodontists are dentists who specialise in the repair of tissues inside the tooth (the pulp) and the root. They diagnose and treat complex causes of tooth pain, such as an abscess (infection within the tooth), and often perform root canal treatments to relieve pain while preserving your natural tooth.

At Stella Dental, our Endodontic specialists have a much higher success rate than standard dentists, due to their level of practice and expertise. This means treatment can be carried out, saving the tooth and stopping any pain before crowning the tooth (if necessary) with a natural-looking restoration, restoring both appearance and function.
Tooth pain stems from infection or damage to the nerves, blood vessels, and other tissues (known collectively as ‘pulp’) deep inside each tooth, including the root. Tooth decay, which is often due to poor oral health or a cracked tooth, can lead to pulpitis, when the pulp becomes infected, creating an abscess. Abscesses can cause terrible toothache and can lead to potentially serious health problems that require urgent medical attention. Endodontists perform root canal treatments far more often than other dentists, removing diseased, injured, inflamed, or infected pulp tissue to relieve tooth pain, eliminating bacteria that could cause further damage while preserving the structure and function of your tooth.

Root canals have a reputation for being painful but in reality, having a root canal is comparable to having a filling. Modern dentistry relies on sophisticated technology and pain management, and most of our clients tell us they are impressed by how quick and pain free treatment is.
Many people continue with their day without taking any clinical downtime, though we advise caution around eating until the numbness has worn off, to avoid burning your mouth. The tissues around your treated tooth might feel sensitive following treatment, but this should resolve over the course of several days.
