First the damaged or infected nerve and structure is removed then we cleanse and shape the inner canal to prevent reinfection and seal fully.
It is a skilled and time-consuming procedure that can require two or more visits. We have an in-house endodontist specialist who will be able to treat your infected tooth to the highest standards, to ensure your tooth has the best long term prognosis.
I have no hesitation in recommending this dentist to anyone. I am an extremely nervous patient, but they made me feel completely at ease during and after my treatment. All of the staff at Dental Beauty Benfleet are very professional and helpful.
Great business with great people. The receptionists are very welcoming and friendly and so is my dentist. I have gone ahead with Invisalign treatment and she has been extremely transparent, helpful and reassuring throughout the whole process. Couldn't recommend this dental practice enough!
Excellent dentist, highly recommend. Family run, superb professionals. Saw them for an emergency appointment over Xmas/New Year and are now my dentist of choice.
There are several reasons why you may need root canal treatment including:
You may experience some mil discomfort or tenderness when biting down on the affected tooth. This usually only lasts a couple of days and can be treated with an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory pain reliever like ibuprofen.
Root Canal treatment can have a bad reputation for being painful but actually most people report the procedure is no more painful that having a filling placed. We’ll make sure your tooth is numbed so you won’t feel any pain during the procedure.
Firstly, our dentist will numb the area to ensure the procedure is as pain free as possible. Once numbed, a small opening is made in the top (crown) of the tooth to access the pulp chamber and canal. The infected tissue is then removed before being filled with a biocompatible material and sealed.
