Are your teeth keeping you awake at night?
Pain is never a good sign when it comes to teeth. Persistent pain from a single tooth is usually an indication that you need root canal treatment. At The Dentist, we use the latest techniques and tools to ensure you’re pain-free in a blink of an eye!
What is a root canal treatment?
During root canal treatment we clean the inside of a tooth and its roots, mechanically and chemically. Once this is done, the roots and the visible part of the tooth (the crown) are filled with resin and rubber filling and ultimately covered with a long-term ceramic or gold restoration or a crown.
How many visits do I need for root canal treatment?
Root canal treatment usually takes two visits to complete but may take more or fewer visits depending on the problem. Once the root canal treatment is completed a permanent filling is required on top to protect the tooth.
Occasionally, we may recommend specialist Endodontist care for teeth that may be more complex to treat. A painful tooth may require re-treatment or surgery by an endodontist (Root canal specialist). If all else fails the tooth may require removal, as a last resort.
