First the damaged or infected nerve and structure is removed then we cleanse and shape the inner canal to prevent reinfection and seal fully.
It is a skilled and time-consuming procedure that can require two or more visits. We have an in-house endodontist specialist who will be able to treat your infected tooth to the highest standards, to ensure your tooth has the best long term prognosis.
I have visited Dental Beauty Addington quite frequently with my daughter in the past 3 months and the care I have received has been extremely efficient and comforting. The clinicians, dental nurses and reception team have gone above and beyond with their care and have created a safe environment especially during these difficult times. I would highly recommend this dental practice.
Fantastic dental practice with a superb, caring team who always put their patients' well-being and satisfaction first. Would thoroughly recommend for all dental needs
Mr Gohill has looked after my families dental care for over twenty-five years. The service has always been excellent. The dental nurses and reception staff are also very kind and helpful.
There are several reasons why you may need root canal treatment including:
You may experience some mil discomfort or tenderness when biting down on the affected tooth. This usually only lasts a couple of days and can be treated with an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory pain reliever like ibuprofen.
Root Canal treatment can have a bad reputation for being painful but actually most people report the procedure is no more painful that having a filling placed. We’ll make sure your tooth is numbed so you won’t feel any pain during the procedure.
Firstly, our dentist will numb the area to ensure the procedure is as pain free as possible. Once numbed, a small opening is made in the top (crown) of the tooth to access the pulp chamber and canal. The infected tissue is then removed before being filled with a biocompatible material and sealed.
