Years ago, RCTs were considered awful and painful procedures. With technological advances RCTs have changed. As with any other dental procedure, you will need to be numbed. Once numbed, having an RCT is not much different than having a filling except that it takes longer. With decades of experience, our dentists are exceptionally gentle in performing RCTs.
No. You will have some residual numbness following treatment which will wear away in a couple of hours. Also, in few cases there may be some post-operative discomfort, which can mostly be controlled with simple pain killer tablets.
Yes, we do. Our patients can take advantage of our in-office nitrous oxide facility. There is a small cost of having happy gas. As setting up happy gas takes some time, we ask our patients to give us a heads up if they want to have happy gas for their treatment.
We have proudly partnered with Denticare to offer you an interest free payment plan option. You pay a one time $39 as a set up fee and pay 20% deposit of the total amount of your payment plan. You can spread the payments to a value that you can comfortably pay every week/fortnight/month for 6-24 months. We also offer payment options like Afterpay and Zip pay, again at no extra charge to you.
You must discuss this with your dentist. Once your dentist has assessed your situation, he/she can guide you well. Mostly saving the tooth is preferred as having a gap will cause several problems with your remaining teeth. Cost and efforts in restoring a missing tooth should also be considered in making this decision. If your tooth is non restorable and too badly damaged, your dentist may advise you to get the tooth out instead.
Though most of the RCTs can be performed comfortably by our dentists, at times, you may need to see a specialist to get a more complicated RCT performed. You would be referred by your dentist in that case to an Endodontist (Root Canal Specialist)

We are considered the gentle dentists of Brisbane. Our patients have tested us over time and have shown faith in us. But if you are really anxious/terrified, you have a few sedation options to choose from.
We offer nitrous oxide sedation (happy gas) in the surgery, which is quite helpful in calming your mind down so you can have the procedure done comfortably.
In our practice we can also organise treatment under IV sedation for you. This needs to be pre-planned and organised beforehand with our anaesthetist.
