Root Canal Treatment Leicester & Loughborough

1.What is Root Canal Treatment?

This procedure involves the removal of the infected nerve and bacteria from the tooth. This is required when the nerve or blood supply of the tooth (termed the pulp) is infected through decay or injury.


2. Why is Root Canal Treatment needed?

Sometimes the pulp becomes infected and the infection may spread through the Root canal system of the tooth. Eventually, this may lead to an abscess. If no treatment is carried out then the infection would spread.


3. Is it painful?

A Local anaesthetic is used and therefore you should feel no pain during the procedure. For the next 24hrs after the procedure, you may suffer with slight discomfort. This discomfort can be relieved by painkillers, if required.


4. What does the The Root Canal Procedure involve?

During the procedure all infection is removed from the canal system. The canal is then shaped and cleaned to prevent any further infection. A temporary filling is then put in and the tooth left to settle.
The Root canal filling is then completed at the next appointment. A permanent filling would also be required. In some cases a crown may be required. Root canal treatment is a skilled and a time consuming procedure. Most courses of treatment can involve two or more visits. The total time required for the procedure can be up to 2 hours.


5. What is the alternative?

The alternative is to have the tooth extracted and replaced with a bridge, implant or removable partial denture to restore chewing function and prevent neighbouring teeth from shifting.

Let’s talk Root Canal treatment 🆘 Here one of our Dentists Vikesh answers the most commonly asked questions 📹 .......
1️⃣ “is Root canal treatment painful?” There should be very little/no pain during the RCT process. We always aim to make our patients feel as comfortable as possible, so much so we have had numerous patients fall asleep during the appointment.
2️⃣ “How many appointments does it take?” At least one appointment is required (approximately 90 minutes) sometimes multiple appointments are required depending on the complexity of the case and the condition of the tooth beforehand.
Many people worry about having Root canal treatment but when done successfully it can prolong the life of the tooth for many years.
If you wish to book in or find out more please DM us with your name and number and we will call you back! ⌨️📞😀 #dentist #Dentalsuite #Nottingham #Loughborough #Leicester #Rootcanaltreatment #painfree
