Root canal treatment

A root treatment is generally required when a patient is in acute pain or has a chronic infection at the apex of the tooth root. The pulp can become infected due to decay, a deep filling or trauma to the tooth. Symptoms can include pain, increased sensitivity to temperature, discolouration, a metallic taste, gum tenderness or swelling.

Root canal treatment sounds daunting to patients, however we at Wargrave Dental Clinic operate with the intention of a successful and pain free procedure. For best long term success we recommend that premolars and molars are best crowned following root canal treatment to help protect the tooth from fracturing.

“I came in for emergency root canal treatment and felt no sense of panic or discomfort at any point. Excellent service.
