What is a Root Canal?

The root canal is the natural cavity lying within the centre of a tooth. Within it sits the pulp chamber and the nerve. Root canal treatment is undertaken when tooth decay or infection has advanced and it is the only way to fix or repair the tooth. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. Without treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected and abscesses may form.

If the nerve of your tooth has been damaged, not only can it cause you a lot of pain, but you will be more vulnerable to serious problems such as infection. You may even experience severe toothache because the nerve has become inflamed. At this stage, antibiotics are unlikely to help and a root canal filling may be recommended.

What is the treatment?

When you visit Manchester Dental Practice, you can have the peace of mind of being in the capable hands of a highly professional and dedicated team. We are passionate about giving you a first-class experience with results to boost your confidence and the vitality of your smile. As with every treatment we offer, our award winning clinicians will carefully talk through your options to ensure you can make the best choices about looking and feeling good about your smile.

The first step, to make you feel as comfortable as possible during a root canal procedure, will be to receive a local anaesthetic from one of our expert dentists. When that has fully taken effect, a small hole will be made enabling our expert dentists to assess the tooth, remove decay and fully treat the disease to prevent further damage from happening. The final stage is to shore up the repaired tooth. At this point, your dentist will decide whether you require a dental crown to be placed on the tooth, as is often the case. This is because your natural tooth may now be weaker. Our expert dentists will be able to discuss any additional treatment options with you for the best outcome.
