Expert Root Canal Treatments on the Gold Coast

A root canal is a restorative dental treatment designed to preserve natural teeth in the case of a tooth infection or severe damage. 

These infections or deep decay can spread and pose serious risks to your tooth health, leading to pain and potential tooth loss if left untreated. We provide root canal treatments from our Gold Coast dental clinic, designed to efficiently and effectively relieve pain, stop the infection, and save teeth. 

If you suspect a tooth infection or have been told that you require a root canal, get in touch with Vogue Dental Studios. Our expert team of Gold Coast dentists can provide a fast and effective relief, for healthy and protected teeth.

The Root Canal Treatment Process

The process of receiving a root canal treatment at our Gold Coast clinic will look like:

Examination: Our dentists will conduct a thorough assessment of your affected tooth, often using X-rays to determine the extent of the infection.

Procedure: You will be placed under local anaesthesia for your comfort. The infected pulp is removed, and the root canal will be carefully cleaned and sealed.

Restoration: Following the root canal, a dental crown or filling is placed to reinforce and protect the treated tooth.

The Vogue Dental Gold Coast team is experienced in this procedure and will make every effort to ensure your comfort throughout the treatment.

When Is a Root Canal Required?

Not all toothaches indicate the need for a root canal. A toothache may be caused by cavities, a chipped or cracked tooth, or enamel erosion — all of which will still require dental work, but perhaps not to the same extent as a root canal. Tooth infections that will require root canal treatment are often accompanied by severe pain and the following symptoms: 

  • Painful swelling in the face around the tooth

  • Difficulty swallowing 

  • A darker change in the colour of your tooth 

  • Severe pain when biting down on the tooth

If you have one or more of these symptoms, it’s important to seek dental care right away - it is likely that you have a tooth infection that needs to be removed. Delaying this treatment could result in the infection growing and affecting other parts of your mouth and throat.

Frequently Asked Questions

Root canal treatments typically range from $900 to $1500, and the cost of your root canal treatment will vary depending on factors such as the tooth location and complexity of the procedure. 

Our dentists will be able to provide a more accurate estimate of your cost after conducting an inspection of your teeth at an initial consultation.

The duration of a root canal treatment usually spans one to two appointments, each lasting about 90 minutes. 

Depending on the complexity of your oral situation, you may need to attend follow-up sessions for treatment and post-treatment check-ups.

We aim to make dental procedures as pain-free as possible. Root canal treatments are done while you are under local or full anaesthesia, making the entire procedure painless. You may experience some mild discomfort after the treatment during recovery, but this is normal and can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.

In cases of minor infection, our dentists will typically remove the affected portion, preserve the remaining structure, and apply a dental filling or crown for reinforcement. Your affected tooth will not need to be removed. 

However, in cases of significant damage or infection, extraction may be recommended to ensure your safety. Our dentists can replace the extracted tooth with an artificial one as part of our dental implant procedure.
