Root Canals Treatment

Root canal treatments aim to save badly decayed or infected teeth with minimal pain using the latest techniques and local anesthetics. Root canal procedure involves removing infected tissue, cleaning, and sealing the root canals to prevent further infection. Symptoms of needed care include tooth pain, swelling, and sensitivity. The treatment typically requires one or two visits, starting with X-rays and local anesthesia, followed by careful cleaning and sealing of the tooth to ensure long-term health.

We at Cheadle dental practice always try to devise a treatment with the aim to repair and save a badly decayed or damaged or infected tooth instead of removing it. We use all the latest in root canals treatment and therefore there is minimal pain due to our methods and local anesthetics. In fact, it is probably far more painful living with a decayed tooth.

Dental care is needed in the case when a tooth is cracked or has a deep cavity and bacteria enter the pulp. if this is left untreated bacteria and decaying materials can cause serious infections or a tooth abscess. The dental problems may lead to pulp death, bone loss, and loss of the tooth itself. Some telltale signs and symptoms would be swelling around your face and neck, a hole in your tooth, toothache or tooth pain, gum swelling, and temperature sensitivity.

Root Canals Treatments Techniques

Having a root canal done can allow you to keep a tooth that might otherwise have to be extracted and replaced with an implant, crown, or bridge. Dental treatment normally takes place over two sessions, starting with the removal of dead or infected tissue from the tooth and then cleaning out the root canals. 

Once this is done, the canals are sealed off to prevent further infection and the cavity is filled to aid healing and prevent further damage. A local anesthetic is normally used, although we also offer other dental procedures such as sedation to alleviate discomfort and anxiety during the procedure.

How to get started with a Root Canal Procedure?

At Cheadle, Root canals procedure is routinely done by an expert endodontist or a general dentist. This treatment usually takes one or two visits, however, some treatments could prove difficult to complete in that time, so we advise having additional visits.

Our staff will first, conduct dental X-rays to check the extent of the damage. You also receive a local anaesthetic to control pain, which may be more severe if the tooth is abscessed. Then a rubber-like sheet called a dental dam is put in your mouth to keep the tooth clean, protected, and free of saliva. 

After this, our specialsts proceed to remove decay, and often an opening is made to gain access to the decaying pulp chamber. Carefully using small dental instruments the infected or diseased pulp is then removed.

After the diseased pulp is removed, the pulp chamber and root canals are flushed and cleaned. The root canals may be reshaped and enlarged to allow better access for filling later. Before permanently filling the root canals, they should be clean of all infections and dried, with all the provided medication. 

If the root canal requires multiple visits, a temporary filling is placed in the crown to protect the tooth and keep out debris and saliva. Avoid biting or chewing on the tooth until it’s been treated and restored by our experts at Cheadle

After the Treatment

After you have been treated by our staff, your restored tooth with the new crown should work normally and look cosmetically pleasing. We advise you to follow good dental and oral hygiene as your restored tooth could last a lifetime. In case your tooth is too sensitive and you feel some painful sensation, over-the-counter medications can help, however in the case that the pain persists, we invite you for a consultation with our dentist or endodontist.

Root canals are carried out when a tooth has a particularly large cavity in it that reaches the nerve chamber, or when the tooth breaks. Such cavities cannot be sorted out with a regular amalgam or composite filling and often cause a severe toothache due to bacteria reaching the nerve or an abscess forming beneath the roots, deep in the jawbone.

What Our Patients Say?

Dear Dr Shabs. This is just a note to say thank you SO MUCH for everything you’ve done for me and my disasterous teeth! Ever since I smashed my front teeth in freshers week I felt like I’ve been in the best possible hands! However, I’ve just finished a teaching course and am going to go and teach English in Jordan in two weeks time and therefore have had to register somewhere else 🙁 Whenever I’m back living in Manchester again though, I’ll be back. Cheers again, Helen (the one who does Arabic)
