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.
Just joined this dental surgery and really impressed. The reception staff were great over the phone and in person. The dentist and dental tech were lovely too. The dentist was really thorough and explained everything to me throughout. Very pleasant experience all round. Would highly recommend.
Catherine the hygienist and her assistant were very considerate and gentle. Recommended by my Mum and now by me. Clean and tidy clinic with courteous and friendly staff 5 star
First time at this practice, I’ve had a dental check up and a hygienist appointment. Both great experiences, staff were all super polite and welcoming. I felt relaxed through both procedures. They were both very thorough and advised on general hygiene and well being, which was a great service!
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.
