Root Canal Treatment Droitwich

Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic treatment, is a dental procedure used to treat a tooth with infected or inflamed pulp, the soft tissue inside the tooth that contains nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue. Root canal treatment aims to save a tooth that would otherwise need to be extracted due to extensive decay, infection, or trauma.

Root canal treatment is the only treatment to save your tooth if the nerve within it is dying or dead.

A nerve can be dying or dead due to deep decay, trauma, deep fillings or gum disease. You will likely get to know this by intense pain, swellings or discomfort.

The nerve is contained in the core of the tooth extending into canals which are based in the roots of the teeth. Root canal treatment involves delicately disinfecting, shaping and filling the middle of the tooth where the nerve and blood supply naturally was.

The success rates are generally very high, at times over 90%.

The alternative to root canal treatment is to pull the tooth out. Our dentists are specially trained to perform this intricate procedure, which will save your natural tooth from being pulled out and replaced with a dental implant, bridge or denture. You can rest assured that you will receive the best care possible at our local private dental practice in Droitwich Dental Studio.

Signs You Need Root Canal Treatment

If you’ve been experiencing any of the following symptoms, it may be time to get root canal treatment from Droitwich Dental Studio:

Severe tooth pain: Persistent and severe toothache or pain, especially when biting or applying pressure to the tooth, can be a sign of infected or inflamed pulp that may require root canal treatment.

Prolonged sensitivity: Teeth that are overly sensitive to hot or cold temperatures and the sensitivity persists even after the stimulus is removed may indicate an issue with the tooth’s pulp that may require root canal treatment.

Gum swelling or tenderness: Swelling or tenderness in the gum tissue around a tooth can be a sign of an infected tooth root that may require root canal treatment.

Discolouration of the tooth: Darkening or discolouration of a tooth can indicate changes in the tooth’s pulp due to infection or inflammation, which may require root canal treatment.

Dental abscess: The presence of a dental abscess, which is a pus-filled swelling around the tooth or gum, can be a sign of an advanced tooth infection that may require root canal treatment.

Persistent bad breath or bad taste: A persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth, even after oral hygiene practices, can be a sign of an infected tooth that may require root canal treatment.

Tooth mobility: If a tooth becomes loose or mobile without any apparent cause, it may indicate an issue with the tooth’s root that may require root canal treatment.
