Root Canal Therapy

This is a routine process carried out to be able to retain teeth that have developed deep decay and which now involves the middle of the tooth where the pulp and nerve are situated.

This is a technique developed by the dental profession to retain a lot of teeth that otherwise would be extracted due to the extent of the decay. There is a mis-conception that “ the roots “ are removed during this treatment . What actually happens is the canal or canals inside the tooth are thoroughly “sterilised” and all debris removed before filling the canal with a rubber based material called Gutta Percha and a sealant.

Root treated teeth are either then restored with a filling material or if more coverage required then a crown will be prepared and placed over the core.

Case Study

Patient SY (Root Canal)

Background

Patient SY was in severe pain with one of his molar  teeth for several weeks and was unsure about  seeking help from his local practice due to convincing himself he would have to have the tooth extracted. .

What We Did

We are very focused on helping anxious patients with specific dental needs. The option was given to retain the tooth by carrying out a Root Canal Treatment , we explained the benefits of this approach and carried out the procedure with no discomfort for the patient. SY has been able to retain an important tooth as a result

Feedback

“It took a lot to get me to a dentist after years of ignoring problems with my teeth but once I persuaded  myself to get it sorted the team at Park Practice were very reassuring. I had a root canal treatment and, can't believe how straight forward it seemed after my concern !  The dentist and nurse have made me realise they are there to help my dental needs and I'm now a regular patient.”
