First the damaged or infected nerve and structure is removed then we cleanse and shape the inner canal to prevent reinfection and seal fully.
It is a skilled and time-consuming procedure that can require two or more visits. We have an in-house endodontist specialist who will be able to treat your infected tooth to the highest standards, to ensure your tooth has the best long term prognosis.
An amazing practice, I have really enjoyed the atmosphere. I was immediately greeted by a friendly reception team who were knowledgeable and informative. My dentist and nurse were great. Highly recommend!
Very pleased with the service from Dental Beauty to date. First appointment booked was fairly speedy and everyone in the practice really friendly. Adam my dentist was great, explained the treatment and why it was needed very clearly and gave me a comprehensive plan in order to bring my beaming smile back.
Something I never thought I'd say - a painless filling, even the jab! Adam and his associates are great. Definitely recommend, particularly if you're not too happy about going to the dentists usually, process was made completely comfortable for me at all times.
There are several reasons why you may need root canal treatment including:
You may experience some mil discomfort or tenderness when biting down on the affected tooth. This usually only lasts a couple of days and can be treated with an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory pain reliever like ibuprofen.
Root Canal treatment can have a bad reputation for being painful but actually most people report the procedure is no more painful that having a filling placed. We’ll make sure your tooth is numbed so you won’t feel any pain during the procedure.
Firstly, our dentist will numb the area to ensure the procedure is as pain free as possible. Once numbed, a small opening is made in the top (crown) of the tooth to access the pulp chamber and canal. The infected tissue is then removed before being filled with a biocompatible material and sealed.
