At Brigstock Dental, we understand the anxiety associated with Root Canal Treatment.

We want to aim to make you feel as comfortable as possible when choosing to have treatment with us.

What is Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal treatment (also known as Endodontic treatment) is needed when the nerve inside your tooth becomes injured or damaged due to decay or trauma. This can cause symptoms of pain and swelling. The infected nerve is removed and the root canal system is cleaned and filled to restore the tooth.

To keep your mouth in tip-top shape, we recommend you come in for regular hygiene appointments and dental check-ups.

FAQs

What happens during the Root Canal Treatment?

First, your Dentist will explain the procedure and all your options to ensure you are happy to go ahead. Our highly skilled dentists can perform root canal treatment to stop the infection from spreading and will aim to preserve as much of your tooth as possible.

This treatment will be carried out under local anaesthetic and, therefore, overall, should feel similar to having a filling. The aim of the treatment is to remove all the infection from the root canal system. The canals are then cleaned and filled to prevent any further infection. The tooth is then restored, often with a permanent filling or crown.

Root canal treatment is a skilled and time-consuming procedure and may require multiple dental visits. After the treatment is complete, it is normal to experience some pain in the area, so we recommend taking pain medication, allowing time for healing.

What happens if I don’t have Root Canal Treatment?

The infection may spread through the root canal system, which could eventually lead to an abscess, potentially causing a great deal of pain, swelling and discomfort. If root canal treatment is not carried out, the tooth may need to be taken out.
