we are using the latest technology, machines, and materials, like microscopes, laser, and bioceramics.
When you visit us for the first time, we will normally arrange for you to have a consultation with one of our team of highly experienced specialist Endodontists. During this consultation we may need to take a number of X-Rays so we can fully assess your condition and present you with a full range of treatment options. Once we have discussed your situation and you have decided upon the treatment option that best meets your needs, we will then arrange one or more appointment sessions in which we will carry out your treatment.
If you are nervous, or anxious in any way, please do feel free to speak to us about your concerns. We have a great deal of experience dealing with anxious patients, and can arrange additional sedation for you should you so require.
What Is Root Canal Treatment?
To understand what a Root Canal treatment entails, it helps to know something about the anatomy of the tooth. Inside the tooth, under the white enamel, is a hard layer called the dentin and the soft tissue is known as the pulp. The pulp contains blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue, which forms the surrounding hard tissues of the tooth during development.
The pulp extends from the crown of the tooth to the tip of the roots, where it connects to the tissues surrounding the root. The pulp is important during a tooth’s growth and development. Once a tooth is fully mature, it can survive without the pulp, because the tooth continues to be nourished by the tissues surrounding it.
You may require root canal treatment if you have pain or swelling associated with your teeth. Sometimes the tooth may not even be hurting but your dentist may have identified an issue that will require addressing before a more serious problem arises.
If you have any questions at all regarding any element of your treatment with us, our warm and friendly team will always be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
Not all root canal treatments go according to plan. It is a tricky and intricate procedure that requires years of experience and practice to master successfully. Teeth that have been root treated before may fail if the dentist could not fully clean all the canals properly, or if the tooth has an extra hidden canal. If this is the case then your root canal may require re-treatment.
The procedure for re-treatment is similar to that of a normal treatment. After the space is cleaned and shaped, the root canals are filled with a rubber-like material called ‘gutta-percha’ to seal the root canals.
