- Root Canals
Root canal treatment (also called Endodontics) is needed when the pulp (nerve) inside your tooth becomes infected through decay or damaged by an injury to your mouth. This infection may spread through the nerve system, which could eventually lead to an abscess, causing a great deal of pain and swelling. If root canal treatment is not carried out, the tooth may need to be taken out.
Treating Root Canal
Our dentists can perform root canal treatment to stop the infection from spreading and will preserve as much of your tooth as possible. Using specific techniques and advanced equipment, you will receive a local anaesthetic and the treatment overall should feel no different to having an ordinary filling placed. The aim of the treatment is to remove all infection from within the nerve system. The root is then cleaned, shaped and filled to try to prevent any further infection. A temporary filling is placed and the tooth is then left to settle. The tooth is checked at a later visit and when all the infection has cleared, the tooth is definitively filled. Root canal treatment is a skilled and time – consuming procedure and most courses of treatment will involve two or more visits.
To keep your mouth in the best possible shape, we recommend that you attend regularly for dental check-ups and hygiene appointments. So why suffer any more pain? Call Navan Dental today on 046 9021203 to book your appointment for affordable cheap Root Canal Treatment in Navan, Dublin and Co Meath.
