Endodontics is the diagnosis and treatment of disease of the tooth root. It prevents infection, relieves pain, and preserves teeth. At Audley Dental Solutions, our in-house Endodontist, Dr James Fitton, with extensive experience in complex root canal treatments whilst maintaining the utmost comfort for patients.
What is root canal treatment and why you might need one?
Teeth look like hard, solid substances, but they are really a complex system of tissues. When the centre of the tooth becomes infected, root canal treatment can help avoid having to remove the tooth completely.
Bacteria in the mouth works its way into the centre of the tooth because of decay or fillings which become infected or after an accident that involves hitting your teeth. If you have toothache and do not see a dentist because you think it has gone away, it is still possibly working its way through your tooth, later causing the need for root canal treatment. It is always recommended that you see your dentist whenever pain is experienced to help protect your teeth.
What’s involved in the treatment process?
Endodontic treatment is a way of saving your tooth. It is a complex procedure, usually split over two appointments - two to three weeks apart. You will have a full or partial crown or other restoration placed on the tooth to protect it from fracture and restore it to full function.
Your tooth may need to be examined periodically, usually after 12 months, to make sure the tissue around the tip of the roots has healed or is healing properly.
Occasionally a tooth that has undergone endodontic treatment fails to heal or pain continues despite therapy and may require re-treatment; this can occur with any dental or medical procedure.
