Take The Pain Out Of The Root Canal
Root canal treatment is one of the most complex dental procedures carried out. It is a skilled and time-consuming procedure.
Our caring staff is accomplished in treating the most difficult root canal treatment cases. We often have great success in treating patients who are experiencing pain or want to save their natural tooth, which might otherwise need extraction. By choosing Root canal treatment, you are choosing to keep your natural teeth. If left untreated, you could experience greater discomfort and it could lead to a serious infection.
Treatments are performed to the highest standards using the latest techniques and materials. Our Dentists have extensive experience in this treatment and will ensure every possible step is taken to make you feel relaxed and at ease. A local anaesthetic is also used to assist in your comfort.
Signs you may require root canal treatment:
- Tooth sensitivity to sweets or hot and cold liquids.
- Constant or intermittent throbbing tooth ache and pain.
- Pain with biting pressure.
- Tissue swelling of the face.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms or suspect you may require root canal treatment, please make an appointment with Wilthorpe Park Dental Surgery as soon as possible and we will take care of this urgent dental treatment.
Length of Treatment
Root canal treatment mostly requires more than one visits, but sometimes it can be completed in a single visit depending on the situation. Some teeth have more roots than other, some teeth have curved root canals that are difficult to find – treating such tooth will require multiple visits. Moreover, teeth with active infections require more than one visits.
Teeth have different numbers of canals:
- The top front teeth have one canal.
- The bottom front teeth have one or two canals.
- The premolars have one or two canals.
- The molars have three or four canals.
After the Treatment
After root canal treatment is over, a temporary filling is placed over the tooth which needs to be replaced with a crown as soon as possible. Tooth become brittle after root canal treatment. Purpose of the crown is to restore the tooth’s strength and protect it from cracking. If the temporary filling is left too long, there are chances that bacteria from your mouth will reinfect the tooth.
The tooth may be sore for two to three days after the treatment. The worse the infection and inflammation you had, the more sensitive the tooth will be after treatment. Avoid chewing on the affected side.
The pulp which is removed during root canal treatment is the part which responds to temperature. After removal of infected pulp your tooth will no longer be sensitive to hot or cold.
