Root canal treatment

Root canal treatment is the means of saving a tooth when it has become damaged through infection, decay, or fracture and the nerve of the tooth has become exposed and inflamed. Our dentists can save teeth using the finest endodontic treatments.

Our dentists offer fast and effective root canal treatment.

When do I need root canal treatment?

Signs that you have a problem include pain when biting or chewing, swelling of the gum near the affected tooth or facial swelling, tooth discolouration, and sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures.

Problems may be caused by several reasons, including:

  • Untreated dental decay
  • Trauma from a fractured or cracked tooth
  • Advanced gum disease
  • Grinding of the teeth
  • Decay beneath a filling

In the early stages of infection, you may not notice any symptoms, but as soon as you notice pain or discomfort, it is essential to call our experts. We can use special tests and dental x-rays to assess the extent of the nerve damage and if necessary, start the first steps of root canal treatment to stop pain and infection.

If left untreated the early nerve damage could lead to a tooth abscess or even the loss of a tooth so it is important not to leave it untreated.

What are the benefits of root canal treatment?

There are many benefits to root canal treatments.

  • Save your natural tooth
  • High treatment success rates when treated early
  • Effective relief from pain
  • Keep your natural smile
  • Boost oral and overall health
  • Prevents jawbone degeneration by stopping dental infection
  • Stop infection of neighbouring teeth

What can you expect from root canal treatment?

All signs of infection are removed during any treatment, and the root canals are disinfected. The tooth is then sealed. Our clinicians will keep you calm and use anaesthetics so you are comfortable throughout.

After any treatment, your tooth will be filling to seal the root treatment and later prepared to fit a custom-made crown. We can discuss the possibility of any post-procedure discomfort, which will be short-term and can be alleviated with over-the-counter pain relief.
