Root canal treatment (also called Endodontics) is required when the blood or nerve supply of the tooth (known as the pulp) is infected through decay or injury.

If the pulp becomes infected, the infection may spread through the root canal system of the tooth. This may eventually lead to an abscess.

If root canal treatment is not undertaken the infection will spread and the tooth may need to be taken out. Once the pulp is destroyed, the tooth cannot heal and it cannot be left in the mouth. Although some people would prefer an extraction, it is usually best to keep as many natural teeth as possible.

Root canal treatment is a routine and painless dental procedure. A local anaesthetic is used and it should feel no different to having an ordinary filling.

Urgent root canal treatment

I recently needed an urgent root canal treatment, where I had a long-standing infection under a crown which my previous dental practice had not spotted. Pav at Crown Wood did a fabulous job of carrying out the root canal without damaging the original crown.

Very professional whilst managing to keep me relaxed throughout treatment, including step by step information on what he was doing which was very reassuring.

I've now switched dentists to the Crown Wood practice and would definitely recommend them to anyone!

Root canal, capping and an implant

I have been attending Crownwood Dental Practice for over 9 years traveling from SW London. I have always experienced a professional and brilliant customer focused service from all of the team, including Dr Wong and Dr Gogna.

At the practice I have had root canal work, teeth caped, and an implant. I have now joined the dental plan scheme which entitles me to regular check ups and hygienist appointments.

I would have no hesitation in recommending the practice to: my friends, family and or anyone .

The Root Canal Treatment Process

The aim of the treatment is to remove all infection from the root canal. The root is then cleaned and filled to prevent any further infection. Most courses of treatment will involve two or more visits to your dentist.

During the first appointment, the infected pulp is removed. Any abscesses, which may be present, can also be drained at this time. The root canal is then cleaned and shaped ready for the filling. A temporary filling is put in and the tooth is left to settle, a crown is usually required at this point to prevent the tooth from fracturing.

The tooth is checked at a later visit and when all the infection has cleared, the tooth is permanently filled.

Tooth Appearance

In the past, a root filled tooth would often darken after treatment. However, with modern techniques this does not usually happen. If there is any discolouration, there are several treatments available to restore the natural appearance.

Post Operative Care

Root canal treatment is usually very successful. However, if the infection comes back the treatment can be repeated. After treatment, it is better to restore the tooth with a crown to provide extra support and strength to the tooth.

Root-treated teeth should be treated just the same as any other tooth. Remember to clean your teeth at least once a day, preferably with a fluoride toothpaste. Cut down on sugary snacks, and keep them only to mealtimes if possible. See your dentist for regular check-ups.
