Root Canal Treatment Greenwich, london

 

Dentists use root canal treatments to save teeth when the pulp at the centre of your tooth becomes severely damaged or infected. It is a relatively simple procedure and one that will alleviate your discomfort.

What is dental pulp?

Dental pulp is the soft tissue in your tooth containing the blood vessels, connective tissue, and nerves that keep your teeth healthy.

Frequently Asked Questions

You may experience some mild irritation or ache. If so, over-the-counter medications will relieve the symptoms.

Your dentist will always attempt to save your tooth when possible, especially since root canal treatment has a high success rate of 90%. Saving your natural tooth can prevent bite problems from your teeth shifting position, difficulty eating, and loss of jawbone volume and density.

Although the advancements in dentistry are incredible, extracting, and then replacing a tooth is more expensive than a root canal.

You are completely numb when you have a root canal treatment so the process should be painless. It is quite common to have a little discomfort for a week after. Pain relief could involve taking paracetamol (dependent on your medical history).

After a root canal treatment on a back tooth the tooth is significantly weakened so it is often necessary to place a supporting structure in the form of a crown or an onlay to stop the tooth fracturing.

The best way is to go to the dentist to have an examination. In some cases pain can mean you need a root canal treatment, however sometimes a tooth can be completely asymptomatic yet need a root canal treatment.
