When you think of a root canal you may feel apprehension; however, root canals of today are much more comfortable than those of the past-about what you could expect from getting a filling. A root canal is a procedure that’s given to try to preserve a natural tooth as long as possible.

An Affordable Alternative to Implants

People often think a root canal is expensive but compared to replacing them with an implant the cost of a root canal is quite cost-effective compared to those more expensive options. A root canal removes the nerve which is the source of pain so the tooth has the best chance of being there long term.

When Do I Need a Root Canal?

If you experience any of the following symptoms you might need a root canal:

What to Expect

Before we begin the procedure we will ensure that the area is sufficiently numbed to help keep you comfortable. Getting a root canal at Dental Hub Geelong typically takes three appointments, with each being a few weeks apart. The appointments vary from 40-60 minutes each. If you’re concerned about the cost we offer payment plan options.

You can spread the cost out and don’t need any credit check.


Again, we will make sure the area is numbed. After the first appointment, you won’t experience sensitivity because the nerve that caused the sensitivity will have been removed.

Book an Appointment

If you have a painful or sensitive tooth, it’s important that you get it checked as soon as possible. Contact our Geelong dental office today to schedule an appointment!

Any invasive or surgical procedure may carry risks. Before moving forward, it is recommended that you seek a second opinion from an appropriately licensed medical professional.
