Also known as endodontics, this procedure involves a dentist removing the infected dental pulp (the soft tissue in the centre of your tooth) and cleaning the inside of the tooth.
Every tooth has one root (and sometimes more than one) within which there is a root canal system. The canals contain veins and nerve endings. When a tooth becomes compromised by decay, a leaking filling or any other trauma, the canal system can become vulnerable to the bacteria that live in your mouth.
If bacteria reaches the dental pulp within your tooth it can spread through the root canal system. Quick diagnosis and treatment can save the tooth and prevent further deterioration.
Horton Dental Practice’s dental professionals have the necessary endodontic training and experience to perform root canal treatments with the delicacy and precision required.
When you attend Horton Dental Practice for root canal treatment, we will take the following steps:
Depending on the severity of your case, your tooth might require a crown following root canal treatment. This will help protect and strengthen the affected tooth.
We will provide advice on how to care for your teeth following the procedure and will be happy to discuss any further issues you may have.
