The name may strike fear into many, but root canal treatment is often a necessary procedure to prevent tooth decay and tooth loss. It can go a long way to assuring the integrity of how your mouth looks and functions.
Root canal treatment is needed when the dental pulp inside of your tooth becomes infected. This is often caused by tooth decay and is unlikely to go away on its own. This infection is likely to spread to your other teeth and gums if left untreated, so it is of utmost importance to receive root canal treatment in Leicester or Corby before more damage it caused.
First a local anaesthetic is given to numb the area in need of treatment. Once this is completed the inside of the tooth is thoroughly cleaned and then sealed with a crown or a filling to prevent further infection.
About 9 out of 10 root canal treatments in Leicester are successful and you can expect to keep the saved tooth for over 10 years once it has been treated. If treatment is unsuccessful the tooth will be removed and replacement options will be offered, including dental bridges and dental implants.
