WHAT IS ROOT CANAL TREATMENT?  

A root canal treatment is an endodontic procedure designed to address issues with the dental pulp, the soft inner tissue of a tooth. When a tooth becomes infected, it can damage the pulp. A root canal removes the infection from the root, protecting the tooth from further damage and decay. 

The early signs of a root infection typically start with mild discomfort and a dull ache, which can quickly escalate to swelling and severe pain if not treated promptly. 

ROOT CANAL AT SPRINGMOUNT

If any of these symptoms sound familiar, we can help. It’s important to see a dentist as soon as possible to prevent or minimise the infection. 

At Springmount Dental & Aesthetics, we strive to see all our registered patients promptly when they experience pain and discomfort. By choosing Dr. Bingham for your endodontic treatment, you can rest assured that you are receiving expert care from a dentist with advanced qualifications and expertise in this field. 

The first step is a thorough assessment by Dr. Bingham to determine if the tooth is suitable for root canal treatment and to plan the best course of action. The treatment involves gently removing any infected tissue from within the tooth and then resealing it to protect against further infection. Local anaesthetic is provided to ensure the procedure is as comfortable as possible, allowing you to relax and even catch up on your favourite Netflix drama while Dr. Bingham works his magic. 

After the tooth has healed, it is likely that you will need a crown to protect the tooth and prevent breakage.

UNDERSTANDING ROOT CANAL TREATMENTS

Root canal treatments are intended to alleviate pain and preserve your tooth, ensuring you maintain a healthy, beautiful smile. While it’s understandable that the thought of this procedure can cause anxiety, there’s no need to worry. Here’s why it’s nothing to fear:

STRAIGHTFORWARD

Although it may sound complex, root canal therapy is a routine dental procedure. It's quite similar to getting a filling and can be completed in one to two appointments.

PAIN RELIEF

Contrary to popular belief, this treatment is relatively pain-free due to the use of local anaesthesia and modern techniques. Patients often feel a sense of relief after undergoing the procedure, as the pain they initially experienced subsides.

YOUR TOOTH IS SAVED

Preserving your natural tooth helps maintain your natural chewing function and is often more aesthetically pleasing. Root treatments can prolong the life of teeth that would otherwise likely need extraction. 

HIGH SUCCESS RATE

This treatment boasts an excellent success rate and the results can last a lifetime.
