Child Dental Benefits Schedule

We participate in CDBS, a government scheme that provides children with access to up to $1,026 in dental services over two consecutive calendar years. This covers most basic general dentistry services, such as checkups and dental cleanings, so your child's oral health will not be neglected.

HICAPS

We make claiming benefits relatively quicker with HICAPS. It is an electronic system that allows patients to swipe cards and claim benefits on the spot when paying for dental services instead of waiting for reimbursement.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions About
Root Canal Therapy

These are some of the telltale signs that can alert you to the need for root canal therapy:

  • Pain or sensitivity in the tooth
  • Visible discolouration of the tooth
  • Swelling around the affected area
  • Tenderness when biting down on food.

Keep a close eye on these signs and if any of these symptoms present themselves, contact your dentist immediately to arrange a consultation to check if root canal therapy is right for you. With prompt management from your dentist, you can preserve your oral health.

  • Root canal therapy can save your tooth.
    If the pulp of your tooth becomes infected, it can cause serious pain and may even lead to the loss of your tooth. Root canal therapy removes the infected pulp from your tooth, which can help to save your tooth.

  • Root canal therapy can relieve your pain.
    If you have an infected tooth, root canal therapy can help to relieve your pain. The procedure involves removing the infected pulp from your tooth, which can help to reduce inflammation and pain.

  • Root canal therapy can prevent further damage to your tooth.
    If the pulp of your tooth becomes infected, it can cause the formation of abscesses or cysts. These abscesses or cysts can damage the bone around your tooth, which can lead to further problems. Root canal therapy can help to prevent these problems by removing the infected pulp from your tooth.

  • Root canal therapy can help you keep your natural teeth.
    If you lose a tooth, it can be difficult to replace it with an artificial tooth that looks and functions like your natural teeth. Root canal therapy can help you keep your natural teeth, which can improve the appearance of your smile and make it easier for you to eat and speak properly.
  • ReInfection.
    One of the risks of root canal therapy is reinfection. If the bacteria are not entirely cleared from the tooth, this means that the infection was not managed. This can lead to pain, swelling, and fever.

  • Nerve Damage.
    If the nerve tissue is damaged during the procedure, it can lead to numbness, tingling, or pain in the affected area.

  • Bleeding.
    Bleeding can occur if the blood vessels are not completely sealed off during the procedure. This can lead to bruising or swelling in the affected area.

  • Allergic Reaction.
    If you are allergic to the materials used in the procedure, you may experience swelling, itching, or redness in the affected area.

  • Pain.
    Pain is a common side effect of root canal therapy. However, this short-lived pain disappears within a few days after the procedure.

A single session is generally all needed to complete a root canal treatment in Craigieburn. Yet, in some cases, a second session may be necessary, depending on the severity of your infection.

Taking care of your root canal therapy is essential in ensuring your continued oral health.

  • Follow the instructions given by your dentist.
    After your root canal treatment in Craigieburn please remember to follow post-care instructions by your dentist. This promotes proper recovery and limits complications from developing.

  • Practise good oral hygiene.
    This includes brushing twice daily, flossing, and using an antibacterial mouthwash if recommended.

  • Stick to regular dental check-ups.
    At least twice a year. You should also inform us about any discomfort you experience during these visits; this is key for monitoring and the continued success of your endodontic treatment in Craigieburn.

Endodontic treatment in Craigieburn is a complex process that requires an experienced professional. It can take several visits for the procedure to be completed.

Because each root canal varies in severity and complexity, as well as dentists’ unique specialties and locations/facilities performing the treatment, its cost can fluctuate greatly.

According to the latest Dental Fee Survey by the Australian Dental Association (ADA), one canal will cost anywhere between $200–$425.

We recommend that you schedule an appointment with us so our staff can give you an estimated cost of a root canal treatment in Craigieburn.

Generally, root canal therapy or a portion of the cost can be covered by your health fund. However, to know your level of cover for the cost of endodontic treatment in Craigieburn at our dental clinic, we recommend contacting your health fund provider.
