A root canal treatment can become necessary if a tooth experiences severe infection, advanced decay or because of injury or trauma. We carry out a root canal treatment to save a tooth from removal and will always do everything we can to prevent this from happening.
During a root canal treatment we will:
At this point, we will then restore the tooth to full function by placing either a filling or a crown to cover and restore the tooth. We will talk through both options with you, but the decision will ultimately depend on how much damage is present at the start of the treatment.
Many patients may not even know that they need a root canal treatment until we diagnose it for them during a routine dental check-up. This is because an infection can spread slowly and without any signs or symptoms over a period of time. This is why it is so important to keep up to date with your dental visits and why we are passionate about promoting preventive dentistry to all our patients.
In some cases, however, patients in need of this treatment will be experiencing severe discomfort and pain. This could be because an abscess has formed at the root of the tooth. If this is the case, then we would recommend you get in touch with us here at Wimbledon Dental Wellness as soon as possible, so that we can provide you with the urgent care and treatment that you need.
