The pulp consists of specialised dental cells, blood vessels, tissue fibres and some nerve fibres located in the hollow space in the central part of the tooth. If this area becomes infected the tooth would then require root canal treatment, where each nerve (pulp) of the tooth is removed, this involves dental files that clean out the infected area and a filling material is then placed.
Root canal treatment usually requires three appointments and has a success rate of about 80%. Once treatment has been completed the treated tooth should last a very long time, that is if you maintain good oral hygiene and generally look after your teeth.
A dentist is always the best option to determine whether you require a root canal treatment. Some symptoms or signs can include a large cavity, which extends to the nerve, severe sensitivity or pain in the tooth and area, a cracked tooth, or the result of a traumatic injury.
Contact us and we can assist you in determining if a root canal treatment is right for you.
Our team are gentle and apply the utmost of care while performing the treatment for you!
We use local anaesthetic to ensure any pain or sensitivity is limited, and in most cases you will not experience any discomfort.
