Your root canal explained

Signs & symptoms: When the pulp tissue containing nerves inside a tooth is infected or diseased, it is necessary to undergo root canal treatment. If you experience a sudden toothache, swelling, pain when biting, or sensitivity to hot and cold, it’s important to take them seriously as they could progress into an abscess. Please don’t hesitate to come see us as soon as possible.


Treatment: Root canal treatment is a gentle and advanced procedure that’s typically performed under local anaesthesia or sedation if necessary. Before removing the infected pulp, your dentist will use a rubber dam to isolate the affected tooth. Once the pulp is removed, the tooth will be disinfected and sealed with a flexible material called gutta percha.


Follow-up: After getting a root canal treatment, your natural tooth may become weaker. This might require you to visit us again for a dental crown.

Keeping your teeth for life

Typically, a toothache is the first indication of a dental issue, which indicates that gum disease or tooth decay may have been developing unnoticed for a while unless it resulted from an injury. It’s often best to have one of our emergency dentists in Haslemere examine your teeth to alleviate the constant pain and discomfort you are experiencing.


Gum disease and tooth decay, which is one of the main causes of tooth loss is entirely preventable if you take measures to control plaque in your mouth, and that’s where your hygienist comes in.


We will not only give your teeth a professional deep clean to get rid of plaque, but we will also help you understand how essential it is to maintain good oral hygiene at home. We will offer tips, methods, and products that are best suited to your requirements. We can also assist with concerns related to bad breath and advise you on diet and lifestyle choices.

Frequently asked questions

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.
