When decay spreads into the nerve of a tooth it can cause the nerve to become inflamed, die or become infected. Sometimes this can cause bad tooth ache and sometimes the nerve can die without any pain. When this happens – root canal treatment is required to save the tooth.
At Deddington Dental we use rotary root canal systems available to treat your teeth. Using this latest technology we can provide pain free root canal treatment and aim for the best quality and success rates possible.
Root canal treatment usually takes 1-2 appointments to complete. Local anaesthetic is used and the decay in your tooth is removed – similar to how a filling is done. The dead or inflamed nerve is cleaned out and disinfected. The nerve is replaced with a filling material to seal it off to bacteria and to prevent problems in the future. A crown will usually be recommended after this treatment to protect the brittle tooth.
