If you have a tender and swollen tooth, and are experiencing sensitivity to hot and cold foods, one of our experienced clinicians in Leeds may recommend a root canal treatment. Relieving your discomfort and removing the infection found at the root of your tooth, a root canal treatment is a simple procedure that will protect your smile for years to come.
What is a root canal treatment?
A root canal treatment is an endodontic treatment that seeks to treat issues with the dental pulp - the soft inner tissue found within a tooth. When a tooth is infected, it can damage the dental pulp. A root canal treatment will remove any infection found at the root of a tooth, protecting it from further damage or decay.
Our professional clinicians in Leeds may recommend a root canal procedure because, without treatment, your infection could grow and spread, resulting in tooth loss. We aim to save your tooth and restore your breathtaking smile.
What happens during a root canal treatment?
Step 1. You will be warmly welcomed to our dazzling practice in Leeds by our warm and welcoming front desk team.
Step 2. Our clinicians will diagnose your tooth infection. We will then assess the extent of the damage and discuss with you whether a root canal would be an appropriate treatment.
Step 3. You will then be invited back to our practice for your root canal treatment. Our experienced team will skilfully numb the area with a local anaesthetic and then apply a dental dam to keep the tooth dry during your procedure.
Step 4. After this, we will remove the infected dental pulp and carefully disinfect your tooth.
Step 5. Your dentist will then seal the area with a temporary filling to prevent reinfection.
