WHAT IS ROOT CANAL TREATMENT?

The root canal consists of blood vessels and nerves extending to the bottom of the root of the tooth.

If a tooth becomes badly decayed, bacteria can infect and damage this area. In some cases, the tooth will become darker, which could mean the tooth’s nerve is dying.

Root canal treatment deals with the infection and, for most patients, saves teeth that would otherwise need to be taken out.

With root canal treatment at Wytes you can:

  • Enjoy the benefits of a procedure that deals with infection and can often save the tooth

  • Experience a treatment that gives the patient no more discomfort than having a filling

  • Take away the pain

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Root canal treatment at Wytes

Step 1
X-rays

We can analyse the damage to your tooth and prepare for treatment by taking x-rays.

Step 2
Remove infection

Under local anaesthetic, we’ll remove the infected areas and drain abscesses.

Step 3
Temporary filling

Your dentist will fit a temporary filling and we’ll book you in for your next appointment.

Step 4
Second appointment

We’ll fill and seal the tooth. For some patients, it’s best to fit a crown.

We perform these procedures under local anaesthetic so you should feel no pain. The treatment should give you no more discomfort than having a filling.

Arrow
Answer icon

There will be some discomfort. We can prescribe painkillers to ease your pain.

Question iconWill the structure of my tooth be weakened?

We remove the tooth’s inner section, so it will be structurally weaker than your existing teeth. In some root canal cases, we’ll use a crown to reinforce your tooth.

With a good daily routine and regular dental check-ups, your treated tooth should last for many years.
