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.
I have recently moved to Dental Beauty as an NHS patient and am more than satisfied with the service that I've received. The reception staff are very courteous and helpful. Bavin, the dentist, is thorough with his examinations and subsequent dental work. I would recommend their practice without hesitation
After recently visiting I was pleasantly surprised at how amazing all the staff were and how patient they were with my and any questions I had. Having had a number of bad experiences with dentists in the past, I was made to feel very welcome from the moment I arrived, everything was explained to me and my dentist made sure to check i was okay at every stage. Would highly recommend!
Booking for a dental check up and hygienist was straight forward and only took 3 minutes. The reception area was very clean and the receptionist was friendly and very pleasant. The doctor and staff were very attentive to my questions and their explanations were very clear. The doctor's offices are very clean and have adequate lighting in all rooms and have state to the art dental equipment
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.
