You’ll enjoy professional root canal treatment with us
A root canal treatment is necessary when the blood or nerve supply to the tooth has become infected from decay or injury. While you may not initially notice pain in your teeth, your tooth may darken in colour (meaning the nerve has died).
Once detected, we can start on a root canal treatment, a highly specialised process which may require several visits.
The central aim of the root canal treatment is to remove any signs of infection from the root canal, which is then thoroughly cleaned and filled to prevent further infection.
Providing you with aftercare and advice
After these steps are taken – and the process can sometimes be completed in one sitting – your tooth may darken slightly, although we have treatments which can prevent this.
Statistically, root treated teeth are more likely to break due to the process weakening the remaining tooth. To counter this we can provide you with a crown which will reinforce the structure of your tooth and see you leaving our practice with perfectly healthy and aesthetically pleasing pearly whites.
