Root Canal Treatment in Melbourne Northern Suburbs: Preston, Reservoir, Coburg, Thornbury, Thomastown, Lalor, Kingsbury, Brunswick, Northcote, Fairfield, ...
Root canal therapy or endodontic treatment is the removal of the damaged or necrotic nerve.
Sometimes there is no sign or symptom of a necrotic pulp, but most of the time untreated inflamed or infected pulp can cause pain or abscess.
Signs and symptoms include spontaneous pain, severe throbbing pain at night, pain or sensitivity to hot or cold, pain on biting or touching.
In a necrotic tooth, discoloration of the tooth is not unusual. Also in an old untreated necrotic tooth, drainage of pus from the tissue around the tooth is common.
The clinic is located in Preston close to the Preston West Primary School and next to the Child Care Centre, serving the residents of northern suburbs of Melbourne.
