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.

Dorking Dental Centre are very welcome and professional. Appreciated the time they took to review my teeth for Invisalign, one comment/improvement would be; they asked me to come back in to the practice to inform me I was not compatible for these type of braces and was there or 5 mins, would have been better/easier to simply tell me over the phone so I didn't have to drive all the way down there.

Dental Dream Team: Dr. Samera Iqbal and Imelda! HATE the dentist, but LOVE this one. Been coming here for years and has changed my dislike for dentists. Had an emergency filling and was pleasantly surprised by Dr. Samera Iqbal and Imelda. They were incredibly calm, patient, and reassuring, which helped ease my fear. Dr. Iqbal explained the procedure and addressed all my concerns. Imelda's friendly nature and seamless teamwork with Dr. Iqbal made the experience smooth and efficient. Their genuine care and dedication created a positive and supportive environment. I am grateful for their exceptional professionalism and expertise. If you're looking for exceptional dental care, I highly recommend Dr. Iqbal and Imelda.
