First the damaged or infected nerve and structure is removed then we cleanse and shape the inner canal to prevent reinfection and seal fully.
It is a skilled and time-consuming procedure that can require two or more visits. We have an in-house endodontist specialist who will be able to treat your infected tooth to the highest standards, to ensure your tooth has the best long term prognosis.
I had a dental checkup, a wisdom teeth extraction and a dental hygiene treatment at Dental Beauty Mottingham. I am very happy with all of the services. All the members of staff are friendly and professional. I will regularly visit them going forward.
From the reception service to meeting with my dentist, it was a welcoming staff, with great efficiency, not a lot of waiting around. Dr Amrit and her assistant Juliana were very warm , reassuring and professional with their service. I felt very confident and relaxed in their care. Would strongly recommend this dental practice.
I received near perfect treatment from the receptionist the dentist and his assistant. I was treated with respect and understanding. Clear explanation given about my treatment, professional at all times. I would recommend this dental practice for excellent service and treatment.
There are several reasons why you may need root canal treatment including:
You may experience some mil discomfort or tenderness when biting down on the affected tooth. This usually only lasts a couple of days and can be treated with an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory pain reliever like ibuprofen.
Root Canal treatment can have a bad reputation for being painful but actually most people report the procedure is no more painful that having a filling placed. We’ll make sure your tooth is numbed so you won’t feel any pain during the procedure.
Firstly, our dentist will numb the area to ensure the procedure is as pain free as possible. Once numbed, a small opening is made in the top (crown) of the tooth to access the pulp chamber and canal. The infected tissue is then removed before being filled with a biocompatible material and sealed.
