Treatments

Endodontic Treatment

Endodontic Treatment, more commonly known as Root Canal Therapy, removes infected pulp from a tooth, and, in the process, both relieves painful symptoms to save the tooth. Common causes of infection include:

    • Tooth decay
    • Dental trauma
    • Improperly fitted restorations such as crowns

Left untreated, the infection may spread to other teeth or even the rest of the body, causing oral abscesses and jeopardising your overall health. So if you suspect that you require Endodontic Treatment it is important to act quickly.

How is endodontic treatment performed?

After applying a local anaesthetic to the treatment area and ensuring that you are completely comfortable, we will open the tooth’s canal to clean out the infected tissue. We will then fill the root canal and chamber with a biocompatible material before sealing the tooth to deter re-infection. We usually recommend that you be fitted with a crown after endodontic treatment, to fortify the tooth and prevent any further damage. You may feel some tenderness around the newly filled tooth afterwards, but any discomfort is easily treated with over-the-counter medication.

Endodontic retreatment
Sometimes surgical intervention is necessary for more complicated procedures like the following:

An especially complicated root canal anatomy
Saliva-based re-contamination
Fractures or broken restorations that let in new infection
If you are especially anxious and / or undergoing a more complex procedure, sedation therapies will be provided to make you more comfortable. At Cobbins Brook Smile Clinic we will help you get past the pain and enjoy a bright and healthy smile once again.

Endodontic surgery
Occasionally a tooth may have problems healing after root canal therapy. This can happen for a number of reasons:

      • Cleaning and treating hidden root canals
      • Removal of built-up calcium in the root canal
      • Treating roots with damaged surfaces

If this happens to you, we will reopen the tooth, clear away any infection or old root canal filling, then put in new filling materials. The opening will then be closed and sealed with a temporary substance until the tooth is strong enough to be fitted with a crown or similar restoration.
