Root canal treatment (or “endodontics”) involves the removal of the pulp tissues from the tooth in the event that it gets infected or inflamed. Removal of the infected or inflamed pulp is the first step in saving the tooth and, during this process, debris within the canals is removed by flushing with an anti-bacterial solution. The canals are finally filled or sealed and the tooth restored to full shape and function by either a permanent filling or a crown.
Root canal treatment is popular because, as well as alieviating pain, it’s also possible to save the damaged tooth which would otherwise need to be extracted. This, in turn, helps the patient maintain their appearance, their confidence and avoid the substantial cost of replacing the missing tooth with a bridge, a denture or a dental implant which can cost thousands of pounds.
If you need a root canal, we have several endodontists at the practice who specialise in this type of treatment and are available to help you quickly.
