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.

Vikesh in the Loughborough Suite made my epic root canal treatment a breeze. His calm informative gentle manner had me completely relaxed. I was so at peace in his hands I possibly even fell asleep during the treatment. Root canal with Vikesh is nothing to be scared of. Thanks for looking after me so well. … READ MORE

I’ve been very impressed with my whole experience at the Dental Suite after joining as a new patient to the practice recently. The customer service levels expressed by members of their team were second to none and as a fairly anxious and nervous patient I was made to feel comfortable as soon as I entered the practice. During the initial consultation my treatment options were explained to me thoroughly by both the dentist and the nurse who followed up with me after my appointment. Having my treatment plan explained to me in such a way calmed my nerves and I felt at ease at my next appointment. I will not hesitate to return to the practice in 6 months time for my routine check and hygiene appointment thanks to the dental suite. … READ MORE

Michelle Derbyshire reviewed The Dental Suite 5*

I’ve always had issues trusting dentists. I found a dentist I loved but he retired last year so I was putting off finding a new one. I was recommended to see Neel in Nottingham and felt in really safe hands. Felt very welcomed by all the staff and I’m pleased to have found somewhere I can go and not feel nervous. Thanks guys! … READ MORE
