Infections can occur when the outer layer of a tooth is damaged or a restoration such as a crown or filling is compromised. Bacteria can then make its way into the central system of a tooth and cause infection.
It is important to treat root canal issues as quickly as possible so that we can stop the infection from travelling through the root canal system. Without treatment, teeth can die and become discoloured, painful, and form an abscess.
Root canal therapy (also known as endodontics) is a delicate and precise treatment which our dentists at Bank Cottage Dental Practice can offer, or in some circumstances refer you to a specialist endodontist where appropriate.
While we will try to resolve the issue at a single appointment, depending on the severity of the infection, multiple appointments may be needed.
