What is a Root Canal

A root canal is a dental procedure specifically designed for addressing a tooth afflicted with an infected or damaged pulp; the innermost section containing nerves and blood vessels.

In the course of this procedure, we eliminate the affected pulp, meticulously cleanses and disinfects the root canal system, and subsequently seals it to prevent any further infection. This particular treatment is important for salvaging a tooth that would otherwise necessitate extraction.

Root canals effectively mitigate severe toothache, reinstate regular tooth function, and conserve the inherent tooth structure.

The application of modern techniques and the utilisation of anaesthesia ensure a relatively comfortable process, rendering it a prevalent and exceptionally successful dental service.

Do You Need a Root Canal?

If you’re grappling with persistent toothache, heightened sensitivity to temperature, or notice swelling and tenderness in your gums, these could be signs indicating the need for root canal treatment.

Discolouration of a tooth, particularly a change to a grey or dark yellow hue, may also suggest issues with the pulp inside. Additionally, a cracked or chipped tooth, prolonged pain following dental procedures, or the presence of a bad taste or odour in the mouth could be indicators of underlying problems requiring attention.

If you’re experiencing any of these signs, seeking prompt dental consultation is crucial. Root canal therapy can effectively address these issues, alleviate pain, and preserve your natural tooth, preventing further complications.

Don’t delay seeking professional care if you suspect you may need a root canal, as timely intervention will contribute to a healthier, pain-free smile.

I attended a hygienist appointment at Diamond Smile, I usually request a hand scale due to my phobia of water collecting at the back of my throat however I decided to go for the usual scale and polish and the nurse Chloe collected the water very well making the whole procedure go smoothly which made the whole experience more pleasant. Many Thanks πŸ’“πŸ’“

Frequently Asked Questions

A root canal is a dental procedure designed to treat a tooth with an infected or damaged pulp. You might need one if you’re experiencing persistent toothache, sensitivity, or signs of pulp infection.
Signs include persistent tooth pain, sensitivity to temperature, swelling or tenderness in the gums, tooth discoloration, and prolonged pain after dental procedures. If you notice any of these, consult with our dental team for an evaluation.
Modern techniques and anaesthesia make root canal procedures relatively comfortable. The goal is to alleviate pain caused by pulp infection, not create it.
The procedure involves removing the infected pulp, cleaning and disinfecting the root canal, and sealing it to prevent further infection. This helps save the tooth and alleviate pain.
The duration depends on factors such as the tooth’s location and the complexity of the case. In general, a root canal can often be completed in one or two appointments.
