Root canal treatment is a safe and effective way of eliminating an infection from the central pulp chamber of a tooth. Pulp infections can occur when severe decay or a traumatic injury compromises the surface of a tooth.

An infected tooth can be very uncomfortable for the patient. Left untreated, an infection may spread to the surrounding teeth, gums, or bone tissue.

Before carrying out a root canal treatment, your dentist will apply a local anaesthetic to ensure you remain comfortable throughout. They will then use a small file to clear infected tissue out of the root canal.

Once the infection is gone, the dentist will thoroughly clean and disinfect the canal before sealing it with a special filling material.

In some cases, they may apply a temporary filling at this stage and delay sealing the tooth permanently to ensure the infection is completely clear.

Once the tooth is permanently sealed, your dentist will reconstruct the tooth with a filling or a dental crown, restoring its look and functionality.

If you experience severe, persistent discomfort, you may need a root canal treatment. Call Smile Gallery on 01342 321 094 or click here to book an appointment.
