Root Canal Treatment

Repair the damaged inside of your tooth and prevent tooth loss with our outstanding root canal treatment.

If your tooth is severely damaged due to decay, damage, infection or wear and tear, your dentist will recommend a root canal treatment.

At Cotteswold House Dental Care, our team of gentle and attentive dentists will provide you with the highest standard of care so you can beat the infection and protect your natural smile.

What is root canal treatment?

Root canal treatment will help you save your tooth when its core has become infected. This can happen due to:

  • Deep decay
  • Damaged or cracked tooth due to trauma
  • Excessive wear of the enamel and dentine
  • Severe gum disease

If you need root canal treatment, you may experience symptoms such as a bad taste in the mouth, pain, tenderness of the gums surrounding the tooth and prolonged periods of sensitivity.

How is root canal treatment carried out?

Root canal treatment is a painless procedure that can help you save your tooth. It is usually carried out in two appointments.

First, your dentist will take an x-ray then give you a local anaesthetic. They will then open the top of your tooth and use a tool to remove any infected pulp. Once this has been done, your dentist will clean and enlarge the root canal and apply a temporary fitting.

At your second appointment, your dentist will remove your temporary filling and replace it with a permanent root canal fitting. You may also be offered a crown to protect your tooth.

Does root canal treatment hurt?
No. Your dentist will use a local anaesthetic to numb the area before carrying out your root canal. The area may temporarily feel sensitive or tender immediately after treatment, but this will resolve within a short period of time.
What will my tooth look like after treatment?
Here at Cotteswold House Dental Care, we use modern techniques to ensure your tooth retains its natural appearance after root canal treatment.
What if I don’t have root canal treatment?
If you don’t have the treatment, you could suffer from a severe infection that could spread. This will affect your overall health and eventually cause the loss of your natural tooth. The only alternative is to have the tooth removed.
How should I care for my tooth after root canal treatment?
After you have a root canal treatment, you should take care of your teeth as normal. This includes regular brushing, flossing and dental check-ups.
