Root canal treatment

Root canal treatment (also called Endodontics) is needed when the pulp inside your tooth becomes infected through tooth decay or damaged by an injury to your mouth. This infection may spread through the root canal system, which could eventually lead to an abscess, causing a great deal of discomfort. If root canal treatment is not carried out, the tooth may need to be taken out.

Our dentists can perform root canal treatment to stop the infection from spreading and will preserve as much of your tooth as possible. Using specific techniques and advanced equipment, you will receive a local anaesthetic and the treatment overall should feel no different to having an ordinary filling placed. The aim of the treatment is to remove all infection from the root canal. The root is then cleaned and filled to prevent any further infection. A temporary filling is put in and the tooth is left to settle. The tooth is checked at a later visit and when all the infection has cleared, the tooth is permanently filled. Root canal treatment is a skilled and time-consuming procedure and most courses of treatment will involve two or more visits.

Questions & Answers

Why have my teeth discoloured? This can be for a number of reasons; from smoking to consuming certain food or drinks or down to age and general wear. We can provide advice to improve your oral hygiene routine and maintain the health of your teeth and gums.

Will teeth whitening be painful? Although some patients report increased sensitivity during treatment, this should pass after a short time. We have selected treatments that will hopefully reduce any uncomfortable sensations and leave you with brighter, whiter teeth. We will also protect your gums from irritation when the whitening treatments are applied to the teeth.

How long does teeth-whitening treatment last? You will need to maintain your new smile with top-up treatments every few months, but these can be carried out at home. As always, we recommend maintaining a positive oral home care routine to keep your teeth and gums as clean and healthy as possible.
