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.
As a very nervous patient, today's appointment was excellent. I got treated as if I was a technicians family member. I wish I had her years ago. I travel from Essex and won't change to any where else. Lovely people across the board.
Covid safety was fantastic and the staff were so friendly! The practice looks extremely smart and booking my appointment was very easy. I saw Rebecca who talked me through my x-rays and my oral health and was very professional and sorted out my wisdom tooth issue! Tracy was very efficient and I felt very comfortable and safe!
Two visits at Dental Beauty with a kind help of hygienist Vivien Vanyik. Very professional, but friendly service. Informative, gentle and caring which is very rare in this world. Definitely recommend and will be using Dental Beauty in the future! Well done and thank you!
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.
