Tooth decay and pulpitis are root canal problems.
Root canal treatment is one of the many forms of dental treatment available. Root canal treatment may be necessary when we irreversibly lead to nerve damage. Endodontic treatment, i.e. root canal treatment is very often the last resort that allows you to save a tooth damaged by caries. This procedure aims to kill the bacteria and stop the disease from developing.
Untreated caries, periodontal disease and other oral problems often result in bacteria entering the tooth, causing pain, dying, color change and weakening of the tooth structure. If we delay the treatment and the inflammatory process is not stopped in time, the damaged tooth must be removed. Thanks to modern technology and the possibility of using a special dental microscope and digital X-ray system during testing, Doctors working in the Eskulap clinic in London are able to look into the dental canals and successfully treat them.
When a patient sits down in a dental chair, he is often accompanied by pain due to damage to the enamel and dentin. Such a tooth needs to be treated mechanically and chemically to get rid of the bacteria. Endodontic treatment is a less invasive procedure than removing a tooth and replacing it with an implant or a bridge. Thanks to the use of radiovisiography, it is possible to conduct accurate root canal treatment using digital technology. The procedure is monitored using X-ray images.
At the clinic we use local anesthesia, which is widely used in dentistry and means that the procedure is much more comfortable for the patient. Call today to arrange a consultation 07747474755.
