Are you experiencing intense, spontaneous pain in your teeth? Is it paired with bad breath, swelling or sensitivity to hot and cold foods?
According to our specialist endodontist, you might be experiencing symptoms of pulpitis, and if that’s the case, you might require a root canal to save your tooth and stop the pain.
Suppose you’re experiencing tooth pain or are worried about your oral condition. In that case, it’s best to get in touch with us – we’ll be able to diagnose what’s happening and prescribe the next best treatments to alleviate any discomfort.
Has a dentist told you that you need a root canal but are not sure this is the best next step? Please consult with our specialist dentists, who have undergone additional training to take on and handle complex cases.
Endodontic procedures are often necessary when the pulp (the soft tissue inside the root canal) becomes infected – this inflammation or infection causes various issues that can cause the tooth to chip or crack.
Additionally, injury or trauma to the teeth can cause pulp damage, even if your tooth has no visible chips or cracks.
When the pulp becomes infected and is left untreated, patients can often further develop abscesses and be left in a lot of pain.
Root canal symptoms:
Root canal treatment is often successful at clearing out the infection and saving the tooth. When combined with dental crowns, the outcome of your root canal treatment can be more successful and extend the tooth’s life for a further 8 to 10 years.
Pursuing this route means that patients can avoid losing a tooth, which comes with its own extraordinary problems like bone loss and tooth movement.
The chance of your tooth surviving for a long time will increase if you keep your teeth clean.
However, the survival of the tooth will also depend on several factors, including:
Following a few days from the procedure, our specialist will invite you in to take X-rays to ensure the infection has gone.
If all looks good, we will replace the temporary filling with a permanent one, with some patients preferring a permanent crown as a final restoration. Dental crowns are artificial teeth often constructed from porcelain and are hailed for their realistic appearance to natural teeth.
Car parking spaces are available near the practice (Colnbrook Street).
