Root Canal Treatment

STOCKTON-ON-TEES

 

A root canal is a procedure that is used to treat infection at the centre of the tooth. Root canal treatment is needed when the blood or nerve supply of the tooth (known as the pulp) is infected through decay or injury. If the pulp becomes infected it may spread through the root canal system of the tooth eventually causing an abscess or infection.

The aim of root canal treatment is to clean and sterilise the canal to remove the bacteria which is the source of the infection. The pulp is then sealed up and the tooth is restored with a filling or a crown.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do Root canal treatment hurt?

You are completely numb when you have a root canal treatment so the process should be painless. It is quite common to have a little discomfort for a week after. Pain relief could involve taking paracetamol (dependent on your medical history).

After Root canal treatment do I need a Crown or Onlay?

After a root canal treatment on a back tooth the tooth is significantly weakened so it is often necessary to place a supporting structure in the form of a crown or an onlay to stop the tooth fracturing.

How do I know if I need a Root canal treatment?

The best way is to go to the dentist to have an examination. In some cases pain can mean you need a root canal treatment, however sometimes a tooth can be completely asymptomatic yet need a root canal treatment.
