Root Canals

Root canals are not widely understood, but people fear them anyway. When a patient hears the words root canal, they might expect pain. But it’s important to remember that the aim of the root canal is always to relieve pain, not cause it. Root canals relate to the nerves of the teeth. When there is a problem with these nerves, it can cause all sorts of other painful problems. That’s why it’s so important to have the root canal procedure carried out as soon as possible. At Club Dental, we offer root canal procedures that are affordable and top-quality.

When a tooth becomes infected, the infected nerves need to be removed. This is what the root canal procedure will do. It might sound very complex, but it’s not nearly as painful or unpleasant as you might be imagining. The alternatives are much worse. Because infections spread and become worse when they’re not treated, an untreated infection in your tooth can spread to your jaw bone. That’s what we want to avoid. The vast majority of cases are solved before they get to that stage, so you shouldn’t worry about that. All you need to do is head to us as soon as you start to feel a pain that won’t go away.

In the short-term, the problem will develop into an abscess if it’s not treated. During the root canal procedure, the infected tissue is removed, and the canal is cleaned to ensure that the infection can’t come back. In many ways, the process is not dissimilar to having a routine filling fitted, and this is something that lots of people have experienced before. The modern techniques we employ mean that root canal procedures are painless and simple.

There are plenty of advantages of getting your problem fixed sooner rather than later. As was already mentioned above, untreated problems of this kind just lead to worse problems, so it makes sense to act quickly. When the process has been completed, you will immediately notice that it becomes much easier for you to chew your food and bite. This isn’t the case when the infection is still present. Being able to do those day to day things without any pain and discomfort is a real relief. It can also take the excess strain off the other teeth; they often have to pick up the slack when you have an infection in one of your teeth.

Without a root canal procedure being carried out, it will eventually get to the stage where the tooth can’t be saved. It’s always our main aim to save your tooth. This is done by removing any of the infected tissue and the area is disinfected. But if you leave it too long, the only cause of action might be to have the tooth entirely removed. That’s probably not what you want, so come to us and let us treat the problem for you. When the infection has been removed, it’s common procedure for a crown to be fitted on the tooth to keep it safe and protected. You’ll then be able to use the tooth as normal without worrying about its potential weakness.

If you are worried about pain, don’t let this fear put you off. We will numb the area around the offending tooth before the procedure has started. This allows us to carry out the job properly, and you won’t feel any pain during the process. The time will fly by, and the procedure will be done before you know. You will probably only have to pay us two visits before this is all done. Many people assume that the procedure takes a long time, but that’s not necessarily the case. Our methods make it quick for you, which is good for everyone. Why hang around and spend longer fixing this problem than you need to?
