The best course of treatment for a severely infected tooth has previously been its extraction. Newtown Dental Care believes it to be more beneficial for you to retain your original tooth, opposed to an artificial one. Endodontic or root canal treatment is way to salvage these severely infected teeth to keep your natural, quality smile.
Infection usually occurs at the ‘pulp’ of the tooth where the nerve tissues and blood vessels which are needed for the tooth’s sustenance and development are found. Infection here is notoriously painful and often requires efficient treatment and depending on the severity of the case, options may vary.
Firstly, the infect pulp is removed and the root is cleaned and sterilised. To prevent any further infection or discomfort it is then sealed with a white willing that is tailored to match your existing tooth colour to leave your smile looking seamless and natural. Our dedicated team recommends some follow up consultations to ensure that you teeth heal correctly and without complication. In the majority of cases the tooth retains full functionality, is durable and aesthetically pleasing. However, if required a crown can be fitted over the tooth to enhance its strength and appearance.
