Root Canal

Root Canal

Root canal treatments are used as a last resort to save teeth when the blood or nerve supply has been infected. If you find yourself in need of one, our dentists will do everything possible to make sure your treatment is successful. The dental pulp is the soft tissue that's in the middle of each tooth. This area contains the tooths' blood and nerve supply. If bacteria gets into this space and causes an infection, then a root canal is needed to correct it.

Benefits of Root Canals

The Treatment

Root canal treatments typically take two treatments to complete. During the initial visit, your dentist will eliminate all infected tissue from the tooth and protect it with a temporary filling. When you come back, the transitory filling is removed and substituted with a permanent one. Depending on how damaged the impacted tooth is, we may suggest that you further shield it using a crown. The goal of the treatment is to completely get rid of the infection from the tooth. Since it is a complicated procedure, it mostly entails two visits, or more, to see the dentist. Once the treatment area has healed, you should take care of your teeth by brushing and flossing regularly, eating healthy foods and visiting the dentist on a regular basis. Taking these steps will help to keep your teeth strong and healthy and lower the chance of needing another root canal in the future.

I absolutely love coming here for my checkups and treatments, the team are so friendly and professional. Mark at the reception desk is always really helpful and we have a nice chat before I go into my appointment. I’ve been coming here for a few years now and definitely won’t go anywhere else, I went somewhere else in-between and had work done that wasn’t done properly and some that wasn’t needed at all, needless to say Dr Zagzag was fantastic and redone the work and removed the fillings that weren’t needed. I went in for my regular check up today and everything was looking good! He’s always happy to answer any questions I have and his dental nurse is really friendly too, I always feel welcome when I’m seen here. I highly recommend this practice, I’m very well looked after.
