Sardinia House Dental Practice is a trusted endodontist in London. We perform root canal treatments, which is still one of the most cost-effective ways to save a tooth.
When you have a tooth decay, it may eat through the layers of the tooth and reach the pulp, which is the fleshy inner tissue of the teeth. When this happens, the pulp may become infected and form an abscess. To save the tooth, we may suggest that you undergo root canal treatment.
Sardinia House Dental Practice has highly experienced endodontists in London. We do our best to minimise discomfort during your treatment and make you feel as comfortable as possible. In most cases, it should not be more uncomfortable than a regular filling.
Friendly and understanding, we are committed to providing you with the highest quality of dental care.
What is a Root Canal?
A root canal is an endodontic treatment. Endodontics is the medical field that pertains to the inner tissues of the tooth, such as the pulp. When a cavity is deep enough, it could end up infecting the pulp. Infections are serious, as they lead to the loss of the tooth, and can infect the tissue around it.
A root canal will help remove the infection and may be a viable alternative to tooth extractions.
How Does a Root Canal Work?
During a root canal, we use specialised tools to clear a tooth of infected pulp. After completely cleaning the area, we fill the tooth and seal it up, and may even apply a crown to strengthen the tooth.
Even without the pulp, the tooth will continue to survive because it is still nourished by the tissues around it. You will retain a normal chewing and biting sensation, as the tooth will be virtually unchanged with the exception that it lacks pulp.
