Our priority is always to save natural teeth whenever possible. Our friendly and highly experienced Ascot root canal team can effectively restore infected teeth with root canal treatment from £420.
The procedure is painless and the treated tooth can go on to function perfectly for many years.
The internal nerves and pulp of teeth can become infected as a result of fracture or serious decay. This can be extremely painful and lead to inflammation and swelling.
If the affected tooth doesn’t receive the relevant treatment then it is likely that it will ultimately have to be removed. Thankfully this can be avoided with appropriate Endodontic treatment.
This involves gently removing the soft tissue from within the tooth and cleaning the internal canals. These are then filled with a replacement material known as gutta-percha.
Finally the tooth is sealed to protect it from any further damage.
Some of the warning signs that Root Canal Treatment is required are pain, sensitivity to hot or cold, tenderness/swelling in the gums and an unpleasant taste in the mouth. Sometimes, however, there are no indications at all. You should make an appointment with your dentist as soon as possible if you are experiencing any symptoms or suspect that you may require treatment.
The procedure is painless as it is carried out under anaesthetic. There may be some moderate tenderness or sensitivity for a few days after treatment. Common painkillers can be used to relieve this, though you should contact your dentist if the pain is more serious or continues for a longer period of time.
Root Canal Treatment has a very high success rate and the restored tooth should last for many years. However, some cases are more complex than others and treatment may not always be possible if there are certain complications. Your dentist will carefully assess your teeth to determine the best course of action.
We aim to make our treatments as affordable as possible and ensure our prices are competitive compared to other local dentists. Our Root Canal Treatment costs from only £420. Please call 01344 297 001 for more details.
