You can rest assured that DB Dental can provide root canal work by our own qualified Endodontists
Root canal treatment is required when there is disease or injury to the dental pulp in the centre of the tooth, which contains nerve endings and blood vessels. This work, which can usually save the tooth, is performed by an Endodontist.
An Endodontist is a dentist with additional specialist postgraduate qualifications. At DB Dental our qualified Endodontists use the very latest state-of-the-art technology to perform a variety of procedures including root canal therapy, oral surgery and the treatment of dental trauma.
Advances in technology and endodontics mean that root canal work today is much less daunting than it perhaps was even five years ago. The treatment is usually less expensive and traumatic than extracting a damaged tooth and replacing it with an artificial one which may require an implant or bridge work.
If you are experiencing pain, the first step is to make an appointment using the Book Now button above to see your DB dentist who will examine you. If necessary, they will refer you to one of our qualified and experienced Endodontists. They will review your options and costs with you prior to any treatment being carried out.
What does Root Canal Treatment really mean?
Root canal treatment (also called endodontic treatment) is a procedure that specifically treats the nerve of the tooth and tissues surrounding the root of the tooth.
How can this improve my dental health?
The aim of root canal treatment is to save a tooth that has been damaged by decay, disease or injury. The dead tissue is removed from the canal, medications such as antiseptics and localised antibiotics are used to clean the inside of the tooth, and the canals are filled. Root canal treatment is successful in most cases and if you take good care of the treated tooth, it can last for many years – possibly for the rest of your life. However, your tooth will not be treated unless the treatment is likely to succeed. In some cases, root canal treatment may not be appropriate and extraction may be the best option.
