Root canal treatments from Ascot Dental Clinic
Root Canal treatment is needed when the ‘pulp’, the blood and nerve supply of the tooth, becomes infected. If left untreated, this infection can spread, leading to a painful abscess. In some cases, the tooth may even need to be removed. So it makes sense to get treatment straight away, as soon as you become aware that your tooth hurts.
Root Canal treatment is usually carried out under a local anaesthetic; the root canal is thoroughly cleaned to remove all traces of the infection before being restored to prevent further infection.
Sometimes this can take more than one visit but rest assured you’ll have a wide range of natural looking restorations to choose from. Ensuring that your treated tooth will blend in beautifully with your existing teeth.
Essentially, a root canal treatment is similar to having a tooth restored so it’s not as bad as some people would have you believe!
