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 cannot praise Grange Street Dental Practice enough. I am a nervous patient and have found all the staff to be extremely professional and very reassuring. I have always been able to get appointments on the day of calling or the following day. My children have also attended the practice and the staff were brilliant with them.
Mr Rawal and his team are changing my serious fear of any dental intervention, including the hygienist, into confidence. Never before in over sixty-five years of dentistry have I experienced such painless treatment - and my pain threshold is high. All the staff are friendly, informative and reassuring and I can thoroughly recommend the practice on every level.
I visited this dentist recently as an emergency as I had extreme pain in my tooth. After being 2 weeks on antibiotics which weren't working I found this dentist and contacted him immediately. It was late on Saturday evening and it was no bother for him to see me. He was very nice and made me feel very comfortable and relaxed straight away. After taking X-rays he extracted the tooth pain free and so fast. I cannot thank him enough. Would definitely recommend.
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.
