At Manor Lodge Dental Practice, our skilful and gentle dental team can perform root canal treatments on teeth suffering from an advanced infection of the dental pulp.

What is a root canal treatment?

Root canal treatments are one of the most commonly performed endodontic treatments and are used to treat teeth that have an advanced infection in the dental pulp.

Why might I need a root canal treatment?

A root canal treatment is necessary when an infection is present at the root of the tooth, in the dental pulp. This can happen as a result of a cracked tooth, a deep cavity, or some kind of dental injury or trauma. In these cases, bacteria can sometimes enter into the tooth, causing an infection and inflammation. Some symptoms associated with needing a root canal treatment include:

  • Increased sensitivity.
  • A loose tooth
  • Pain when chewing or biting down
  • An abscess

If you are currently experiencing any of the symptoms mentioned above, we would encourage you to get in contact with us here as soon as possible. However, not all patients experience any of the symptoms mentioned here. Regardless of whether you’re experiencing symptoms or not, we’ll be able to diagnose the need for a root canal treatment from an X-ray either during a regular check-up or at an emergency appointment.

What is the treatment actually like?

We understand that there are some common misconceptions about root canal treatment among some patients, and that many patients approach it with nerves and trepidation. With our highly-skilled, gentle, and compassionate team, along with our cutting-edge technologies and modern-day techniques, there is nothing to be worried about.

Most root canal treatments will take place over two appointments. A local anaesthetic will be used so the treatment will be pain free and comfortable throughout, and we’ll carefully remove the infected pulp, cleaning the internal chambers and canals of your teeth. We’ll then use a special filling material to repair and protect the tooth from further damage. At this point, we may well also recommend the application of a crown or permanent filling in order to restore the tooth in question to full function.

Thanks to our professional endodontic treatment provision here at Manor Lodge Dental Practice, we’re also able to perform more complex treatments. This includes re-root canal treatments to treat prior root canal treatments that may have failed, as well as multiple or curved roots.
