Smile More Dental Care understands the importance of maintaining a high level of oral health. All our dental treatments are designed to improve your oral health by creating a strong, healthy foundation.
Our root canal treatment can help remove infection and the damaged nerve that’s located deep inside the root of your tooth.
The root canal is a tube that’s located inside each tooth, which a tube connecting the root of the tooth to a small chamber inside the crown. The root canal holds the tooth’s blood and nerve supply which is commonly referred to as the ‘pulp’.
Our root canal therapy focuses on removing bacteria that can get inside the root canal. Bacteria build-up can affect the nerve of the tooth and can cause it to deteriorate and die. Root canal treatment is designed to remove the infection and the dying nerve inside the canal.
If left untreated, the tooth may have to be extracted altogether and replaced with a natural-looking, long-lasting crown.
At Smile More Dental Care, our root canal treatment involves thoroughly cleaning the canal once we’ve removed the damaged nerve tissue. This makes sure that the bacteria has properly been cleaned, removing the risk of further infection to the tooth.
What are the oral health advantages of Root Canal Treatment?
Root canal treatment offers a wealth of oral health benefits. Before treatment, a member of our experienced dental team at our London practice will explain why root canal treatment is ideal for you. The benefits of root canal therapy include:
- Saving the tooth from extraction. If treatment is done as soon as possible, it’ll eliminate the need to remove the tooth.
- Root canal therapy prevents the bacteria inside the canal from spreading to neighbouring teeth.
- It’ll remove any pain associated with the infected tooth. As the bacteria build up, it can lead to a toothache, root canal treatment will stop this.
If you’ve noticed swelling in the gum area, constant toothache or pain when chewing or even opening your mouth, you may need root canal treatment.
Smile More Dental Care is based in London and by booking an appointment with us, we can thoroughly assess your current oral health and the tooth that may be affected.
