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.
First time at Dentist in over a year due to Covid-19. I must say the young lady I saw was excellent. Very thorough examination and gentle to, she explained in detail the results of my consultation and made me feel relaxed. Highly recommended.
I managed to get an emergency appointment as was in severe pain. Pia diagnosed a cracked tooth and an infection and I returned today for an extraction. I was very nervous but Pia reasurred me all the way and was so kind and professional and put me at ease. Excellent service. Thank you so much.
I had the pleasure of meeting Pia with my daughters. She was welcoming and caring. With 3 children with disabilities she made them feel so welcome and at ease without even knowing they had disabilities. Highly recommend visiting dental beauty and seeing Pia. The team are all welcoming and friendly.
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.
