Your root canal explained

Signs & symptoms: Root canal treatment is necessary when the nerves inside a tooth’s pulp tissue are infected or diseased. It is important to take sudden toothache, swelling, pain when biting, or sensitivity to hot and cold seriously, as they can develop into an abscess. Please do not delay seeking assistance from us and come see us as soon as possible.

Treatment: The process of root canal treatment is a sophisticated and gentle one, generally carried out under local anaesthesia, or with the option of sedation if required. To remove the infected pulp, your dentist will isolate the affected tooth by using a rubber dam. After the removal of the pulp, the tooth will be disinfected and sealed with a flexible material known as gutta percha.

Follow-up: After having a root canal treatment, your natural tooth may become weaker, which may require you to get a dental crown in the future. Kindly note that we may need to schedule another appointment for this purpose.

Keeping your teeth for life

If you are experiencing dental pain, it may be due to gum disease or tooth decay, which can develop over time without noticeable symptoms. It is advisable to visit one of our emergency dentists in Haslemere to address the issue and relieve the persistent discomfort. However, if the pain resulted from an injury, this may not necessarily be the case.

Your hygienist can help you prevent gum disease and tooth decay, which are major causes of tooth loss. Controlling the buildup of plaque in your mouth is key to this prevention.

We’ll provide a thorough teeth cleaning to remove plaque, and give you advice on how to maintain good oral hygiene at home. We’ll recommend tips, methods, and products that best suit your needs. Additionally, we can address concerns about bad breath and advise you on dietary and lifestyle choices.

Why would I need root canal treatment?

There are lots of reasons your tooth might become infected – deep decay due to cavities or gum disease, cracked fillings or crowns, and damage as a result of trauma, or even teeth grinding. Root canal treatment will prevent the need for tooth extraction, which in turn can prevent further oral health problems.

What are the symptoms?

Early signs that you might need root canal treatment include toothache, acute sensitivity to hot and cold foods or liquids and discomfort when chewing. When the infected pulp dies, these symptoms may temporarily subside – but don’t be tempted to put off seeing your dentist. When the infection spreads to the root canal, those early symptoms return more aggressively, often including an abscess. If this happens, contact Stricklands Dental Fitness Centre for an emergency appointment.

Will I need to take time off for a root canal?

You can carry on as normal once your local anaesthetic has worn off, though the full healing period will take around a week – just be careful with what you eat and maintain an excellent oral hygiene routine.

Does root canal treatment hurt?

Not if it’s carried out to a high standard. Our root canal dentist, Maslinda, uses electronically delivered anaesthesia to ensure instantaneous and effective numbness to ensure your treatment is as comfortable as possible.
