ROOT CANAL THERAPY

This treatment provided at our sister practice, Specialist Dental and Implant Centre.
Endodontics is the field of dentistry concerned with the roots of the teeth, with the most common treatment being root canal treatment.

What Is Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal treatment is a procedure designed to prevent further infection of a tooth that is effectively dying because the living pulp tissue has been damaged or decayed. The pulp tissue contains the nerves and blood vessels. Root canal treatment is often used to save a tooth that has been damaged or affected by severe decay and to prevent the formation of abscesses.

The Procedure

Many people are worried by root canal treatment but it is an effective treatment. The procedure involves the removal of infected or damaged pulp tissue from the root canals. Once this has been done the root canals are cleaned thoroughly and then filled, with the tooth then sealed to prevent repeat infection.
Root canal treatment has a high success rate but it can be a complex procedure. This is because there are many curved canals which can make access difficult. If the case is too complex we may refer you to an endodontic specialist. Root canal treatment is carried out under local anaesthetic to prevent pain.

Are There Any Risks Or Complications?

Root canal treatment is an effective, safe treatment but as with all procedures there is risk of complications, which include:
In the rare event of a complication, we will stop to explain what is happening and answer any questions you have.

After The Procedure

After the root canals have been emptied, cleaned and filled, a restoration (usually a filling) will be fitted to strengthen the tooth. In some cases, we will also recommend a crown to provide additional protection.
