Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment is a vital dental procedure that can help you keep a tooth when the nerve inside is decaying, dying or inflamed. You might have heard that root canal treatments are worst-case scenarios, but the truth is that they are a perfect solution to keep your natural teeth intact.

Usually, root canal treatments are needed when the nerve of your tooth becomes infected or damaged due to trauma. If you’re experiencing pain or finding it difficult to sleep, then it might be time to go in for a root canal treatment.

To perform this procedure, your dentist will first administer a local anesthetic, so you don’t feel anything during the process. Then, a series of instruments will be used to clean and shape the root canals where the nerve used to live. Once the space is clean, it is filled and sealed, and the tooth can then be restored with a filling or often a crown.

Root canal treatments can ensure that you don’t lose a tooth that might otherwise have had to be extracted and replaced with a bridge, denture, or implant. Speak to your dentist about the benefits of root canal treatments and how they can help you keep your teeth healthy and strong.

Frequently Asked Questions

The root canal is the tooth’s core containing sensitive nerves and blood vessels. Interestingly, while some teeth only possess one canal, larger, back-of-the-mouth teeth can boast up to four! Proper structure provides an engaging read for dental patients.

When the nerves inside a tooth are affected by trauma or decay, it can result in painful inflammation and infection. Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic treatment, is a necessary remedy for this condition.

Root canal treatment is a two-appointment procedure aimed at removing all infections from affected teeth. During the first, we concentrate on clearing up the infection, inserting a temporary filling to seal the perforation. In the second, we will test that the bug is gone and restore your tooth to its former glory.

Using local anaesthetics during root canal treatments can make the entire procedure quite comfortable. In fact, the treatment is not very different from a normal dental filling. However, you may experience some tenderness in the treated tooth while applying pressure, such as biting, for a day or two post procedure. Nevertheless, the discomfort should subside quite quickly.

Root Canal Treatment is a recommended option over tooth extraction because leaving an infected tooth in the mouth is unadvisable. Typically with a tooth infection, the ultimate alternative to a root canal is tooth removal. By having a root canal, the infected tooth can potentially be saved, and a healthy, beautiful smile maintained.

Recent dental advancements allow for more efficient root canal treatments, often requiring a single visit. Simple procedures may take as little as half an hour, while more complex issues can still be resolved in under 90 minutes. Of course, the duration of the procedure relies on other factors as well, like the tooth, root shapes, and patient comfort throughout the treatment.

After your root canal treatment, your dentist will provide advice on when you can eat. Softer foods, like soup, eggs and pasta, should be on your menu as harder foods might cause pain during the recovery period. Be careful with the temporary crown and avoid foods that could potentially harm it, such as chewy toffees or hard sweets. Additionally, it’s best to stay away from ice cubes and hot or cold drinks.

Depending on the complexity of the case privately paying patients can pay between £250 – £750 depending on the complexity of the case.

Your dentist will be able to advise on the cost of private treatment and what it entails.

Endodontists are specialists in root canal treatment, offering unparalleled expertise in the field. Although many dentists provide this treatment, complex scenarios often require an endodontist’s attention.

Performing root canal treatment requires several steps. First, your dentist will administer a local anaesthetic to ensure that you feel no pain. Next, they will clean and shape the root canals where the tooth’s nerve once resided. Finally, the space will be filled and sealed before the tooth is restored with a filling. With regards to the tooth’s health, a dental crown may also be necessary.

This procedure is essential in preserving your tooth while preventing infection and further damage.

Root canal treatment is a highly effective way to treat infected teeth, with most patients retaining their natural teeth. To ensure optimal oral health, be sure to maintain proper hygiene with regular cleanings and checkups. Additionally, fitting a crown to the tooth after the treatment can significantly boost its survival rate. Trust us to help you maintain your bright and healthy smile!

After a root canal treatment, taking special precautions is crucial. Fortunately, you can still maintain good oral hygiene by brushing, flossing, and enjoying your regular diet. However, it’s important to avoid clenching or biting down on hard objects to prevent further damage. Keep in mind that the treated tooth may be more brittle than before and requires extra care.

To ensure that your teeth and gums stay healthy, make regular appointments with your dentist and hygienist. Their professional care will give you peace of mind and a confident smile.
