Root Canal Treatment
Toothache is dreadful. It more often than not stems from inflammation and infection in the soft tissue (dental pulp) at the centre of the tooth. This can occur after tooth decay, leaky fillings, gum disease and damage to teeth as a result of trauma, such as a fall. Leaving a tooth untreated can be painful and lead to an abscess (collection of pus).
Root canal treatment is a dental procedure used to treat and clear infection at the centre of a tooth. It is a procedure that can save a tooth that might otherwise have to be removed completely.
Procedure for a root canal treatment usually requires more than one visit:
More often than not, a tooth which has been root filled will require a crown to protect it from breaking in the future. Your dentist will discuss this with your treatment options.
At Red House Dental, we practice the latest techniques using high quality rotary endodontic instruments.
More complex root canal treatments can be performed by Dr Anand Mistry (Practice Limited To Endodontics), who has undertaken further education and training in this field. Over the years he has gained a high degree of competence in the successful management of difficult endodontic cases.
