ROOT CANAL

TREATMENT

Tooth can not be healed in time but gives signals to be treated. Sensitivity or any pain gives you an idea for a dental check-up. We can stop a tooth loss with a simple composite filling. In case of any infection on the roots, root canal treatment can save your natural tooth. 

Both treatment is effective for both keeping your natural tooth and aesthetics. An untreated tooth will go for a tooth loss which can only be fixed with an implant or bridge.

SENSITIVE TOOTH: WHITE FILLINGS

A regular dental check-up is best to see if you need a new filling or if your existing filling should be renewed. But if you feel a sensitivity on your tooth it means it's time to visit your dentist. If your tooth has hot, cold or sweet sensitivity this can be because of a decay in dentin level. Decay should be cleaned first and then a white composite filling will be placed to the cavity.  

Sometimes, a tooth may deteriorate as a result of decay or issues with the root canal and may need to be restructured as a result. In such cases, the tooth is measured using digital technology, a replacement section is prepared from porcelain or fiber-reinforced composite materials in the laboratory and then applied with special adhesives into the mouth. Inlay-onlay fillings are designed to take account of contact with teeth on either side, form, hygiene and function.

White fillings takes half an hour and 50 GBP per tooth. In case of a mercury removal or cavity sealer operation it takes more time and material which effects additional costs with the range of 10-20 GBP.

PAINFUL TOOTH: ROOT CANAL TREATMENT

If you have a constant pain or a pain which is waking you up at night time. This means that your decay is at pulp level. This requires a root canal. The nerves of the tooth will be taken out and the root canal will be filled with root filling. 

The rest of the tooth will be restored or rebuilt by a white filling or crown. 

Root canal treatment costs change due to number of roots treated. Anterior teeth have 2 roots and posterior teeth have there or four roots.  Total cost will change between 150 GBP and 200 GBP per tooth. White filling over the tooth costs 50 GBP in addition to root canal treatment. At the end of the treatment your natural tooth will be saved which will be the cheapest treatment in proportion to having a n implant. 

Each patient and each tooth is different but mostly, one visit will last 60-90 minutes and you will need one or two visits depending on your need. Your dentist can inform you better on this once she sees the tooth.

What is endodontic treatment?

Endodontic treatment, also named as a root canal treatment is a procedure we carry out to save  a tooth from extraction. It is performed mostly when a  patient has severe pain or infection, sometimes in the form of swelling or abcess and sometimes sympomless but diagnosed with an xray.

 

When do I need a root canal?

If your tooth is sensitive to hot or cold that doesn’t go away,
If you have severe spontaneous pain, and no pain medication helps or this pain wakes you up at night
If there is swelling or a continuous discomfort in your chewing function, you might want to get your tooth checked.

 

Is root canal treatment painful?
Treatment is done under local anesthethic and proper anesthesia you should not feel pain. When tissues are very inflamed, causing severe tootache, we may need more than one dose or try combined methods to achieve good pain control.

 

How about after the procedure?
When you leave the office, you may feel some discomfort in chewing for a few days. This is not uncommon and can be solved by a pain medicine prescribed by your dentist if necessary. Some infected teeth might take some more time to heal, please contact your dentist if you experience any unexpected pain.

 

If you already removed the nerves, why does it stil hurt?
Removing the infected pulp tissue eliminates the source of infection, but the resolving of the inflammation in the surrounding tissues takes some time. Usually the body can do this by itself but sometimes antibiotics and antiinflammatory medicine is needed.

 

How long does the treatment take and how many visits will I need?

Each patient and each tooth is different but mostly, one visit will last 60-90 minutes and you will need one or two visits depending on your need. Your dentist can inform you better on this once she sees the tooth.
