The Ins and Outs of Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment has a bad name, but it is actually a really important and effective treatment, which can save a tooth. Often, the alternative to root canal treatment is extraction and it is almost always better to save a tooth rather than remove it. At Devonshire Square Dental Studio in London we have many years of experience in performing root canal procedures and the treatment is much less daunting than it sounds.

About the root canals

The root canals are found in the root section of the tooth. They contain pulp, which is the living tissue of the tooth, including blood vessels and nerves. If the pulp becomes infected or damaged, this causes the tooth to start dying and the tooth becomes susceptible to abscesses, which are usually very painful.

Root canal treatment

Root canal treatment may be recommended if a tooth is infected and the pulp tissue has become damaged. Root canal treatment can help to prevent the spread of infection and the development of abscesses. If the tooth is left untreated, the infection will spread and there may be no other option but to remove the tooth.

The procedure

Many patients are worried about having root canal treatment because they think it will be painful, but the tooth will be anaesthetised before the procedure to prevent any pain. Root canal treatment involves drilling into the tooth to access to root canals. The infected pulp tissue is removed and the tooth is cleaned thoroughly to ensure that no infected tissue is left behind. The root canals are then sealed using dental filling material to prevent the infection from spreading. A temporary crown is usually fitted and then the patient is advised to come back to the surgery to have the permanent crown fitted. Root canal treatment should not be painful and we do everything we can to help you feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible.
