Root canal, also called endodontic treatment, is the process of removing injured, infected or dead pulp from the tooth. It is a dental procedure used for treating infection at the centre of a tooth. It helps to repair and save a badly damaged or infected tooth. The infection is caused by bacteria that stay within your mouth. This may occur after:
Our dental surgeon will:
Consult our root canal specialist in London if you are looking to undergo the treatment. The bacteria will have to be removed for treating the infection and the affected area. This may be done by either extracting the tooth or trying to save it by removing the bacteria by performing a root canal treatment.
After the bacteria get removed, the root canal will be filled and the tooth will be closed with either a crown or a filing. The inflamed tissue present at the end of the tooth will cure naturally in most cases. Before opting for a root canal treatment, you will be given local anaesthesia to reduce the discomfort and ensure that the process is not painful. The treatment may require several visits to the endodontist in London depending on your case. After the treatment, your new teeth should look like the natural ones.
Most root canal treatments are known to achieve success; however, a tooth may last for nearly 10 years after the therapy is done.
It is extremely important to take proper care of your teeth after you undergo a root canal in London. Try not to bite or chew hard foods on the treated tooth until it is restored permanently. Excessive pressure on the tooth being treated may lead to a further crack or fracture. You can prevent the need for a root canal treatment in the future by:
Practice good oral hygiene that includes brushing twice and flossing once in a day to remove any food particles that may have accumulated within your teeth.
