root damage
The dental pulp helps to nourish the tooth and keep it healthy. When infected or damaged, it may cause a variety of symptoms, including pain, sensitivity, swelling, and discoloration of the tooth.

evaluation
In some cases, there may be no symptoms at all, making it important to make regular dental visits for check-ups and cleanings.
Contact Us
During root canal surgery, the dentist will numb the area around the affected tooth with local anaesthesia. A small hole is made in the top of the tooth to access the pulp chamber.
Contact Us
cleaning
Using specialized tools, the dentist will remove the damaged area and clean the inside of the tooth. An antimicrobial solution may also be used to help kill any remaining bacteria.

The Process
Once the inside of the tooth has been cleaned, the dentist will fill it with a rubber-like material. They will then seal the hole with a temporary filling. A dental crown may be used to protect the tooth and make it usable.

aftercare
After the procedure, it is normal to experience some discomfort or sensitivity for a few days. You may be recommended over-the-counter pain medication to help manage any discomfort.

Your Smile
It is important to follow the dentist's instructions for aftercare, including avoiding hard or crunchy foods and maintaining good oral hygiene habits.
Contact Us
retreatment
In some cases, a tooth may require a second root canal surgery, known as retreatment. This may be necessary if new bacteria have entered the tooth. Retreatment is like the initial procedure but may require additional steps to ensure the tooth is properly cleaned and sealed.

Frequent questions

No. Root canal treatment is usually carried out under local anaesthetic so you won’t feel any pain. You may experience some tenderness afterwards, which will gradually disappear over time.

The alternative is to have the tooth removed. When the blood or nerve supply is destroyed it will not be able to heal and leaving the mouth infected can lead to an abscess, which can be painful. It is always recommended to have as many natural teeth as possible, so removing the tooth entirely is not preferred over root canal treatment.

When the blood or nerve supply becomes infected, it may spread throughout the root canal system, which can lead to an abscess. The infected area of your mouth starts to collect pus and leads to swelling of the tissues, as well as varying amounts of pain from dull to severe.

The treatment is usually very successful at preserving the decaying tooth and preventing further infection.
