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.
Started coming to Dental Beauty Swanley at the beginning of the year. Always feel welcomed as soon as I walk in the practice. I'm a very nervous patient so this dental practice is great. The dentist talk you through every part of your treatment and answer any question you may have.
Started coming here a few years ago, I have never had better treatment. All the staff are so friendly, the reception staff are warm and welcoming. Every time I go in the atmosphere is just so lovely. Couldn't recommend more.
Excellent in all areas. Our children are seen by the dentists here and the staff are always cheery and enthusiastic with them. I have also had several different treatments and have always felt in good hands. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this practice.
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.
