This nerve lives in the core of each tooth and in the canals based on the roots of the teeth. When this nerve supply suffers a high level of tooth decay, gum disease or trauma, it can suggest the need for root canal treatment. Unfortunately, in some cases, there are no apparent symptoms, which is why regular routine examinations are so important, reducing your chances of getting to the stage of requiring a root canal.
After an initial examination of the tooth in question, we can diligently remove the infected matter from the tooth root. Using a sealant, we will make sure there is no area where infection can re-enter into the tooth. The treatment has a high success rate and our team here at House of Dental have a delicate approach to treatment, working to make you feel comfortable at all times during the procedure.
Root canal treatment is generally performed in a single appointment, though there are cases where we may need you to come in for a follow-up visit if the infection is severe.
We understand root canal treatment can sound daunting for nervous patients. Please remember, our team is here to look after you and will do everything they can to make you feel at ease. We will give you a local anaesthetic beforehand, so you can feel relaxed and comfortable throughout.
