Root canal treatment is the most common form of endodontic therapy, and at Broseley Dental Practice we can provide this highly skilled and delicate procedure to resolve the pain and swelling that can arise from this type of infection.
The soft tissue or dental pulp inside a tooth becomes vulnerable to infection if the outer layers have cracked or been damaged.
Your dentist will ensure the area being treated has been numbed with local anaesthetic prior to starting the treatment.
They will then remove the top of your tooth to access the internal tissue and clean the infection from the soft tissue, using files and disinfectant. The dentist will end the procedure by using a crown to strengthen and protect the remainder of your natural tooth.
If our dentist has problems accessing the root of the tooth, or the site of the infection, we may refer you to an endodontist – a specialist in treating internal dental problems. You may also be referred to a specialist if you have recurrent root canal infections.
