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 saw Dr Meriam Khawam for replacement of missing filling of one of my molars. Her administration of the local anaesthetic and the rest of the work was outstanding. She did not forget to examine and give me advice on my gum health which so many dentists overlook. Overall my experience was very positive.
I visited Dr Ankit Patel for ongoing issues with my sensitive teeth. I was extremely nervous and worried as I don’t visit the dentist often, but Dr Patel ensured I was comfortable throughout and explained the treatment in detail which put me at ease. Overall great service and really friendly staff.
First consultation went beyond all my expectations. Dr Meriam was not only pleasant but extremely professional and had answers and advice for all my points of discussion. No treatment done on this date but an overall assessment and I left the practice feeling I was in good hands.
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.
