Root Canal Treatment in Solihull
The aim of root canal treatment is to save a tooth that has been badly damaged due to decay, disease, painful cracks or injury. Most people prefer to save their tooth because it generally will function better than an artificial denture tooth. Root canal is successful in most cases. If you take care of the treated tooth it will last many years.
We use the latest technology – lasers to clean the dental root canals to give you better results. It is cheaper to treat you at Eternal Smiles than going to a specialist!
Infection or inflammation of the pulp can be caused by : repeated dental work to the tooth, breakdown of a filling or crown, a deep cavity, trauma gum disease and extreme wear. Symptoms may include pain, sensitivity to heat or cold, tooth discolouration and swelling or sorness in the gums surrounding the tooth.
Different anitbacterial and antiinflamatory medicines are used to clean and help stop the inflammtion and infection in the canals of the root. Some are left in the canal from 3-4 weeks and sometimes needs to be replaced if infection persists. At the final visit a root canal filing is placed and the crown is filled.
Sometimes the tooth is at risk of root fracture and Dr Singh can recommend you to have a cosmetic crown placed to strengthen the tooth. We will keep the procedure as painless and comfortable as possible.
