Root Canal Treatment
Saving your tooth with a Root cancel at the Fresh Smile Clinic
1. First Appointment
Removal of the infected pulp, which involves a number of X-Ray to size the treating canal and shape. Before beginning you will be given local anesthetic to numb the tooth and surrounding area.
We often use the Wand for pain free injection before starting.
Using only specialist root canal treatment, the Dentist Dr Brufman will begin by creating an opening of the tooth to access the infected pulp and clean it away. In the process the canal will be shaped for a better fill towards the end of the treatment finally, root filling will be used to fill the space which has just been cleaned.
Now we need the tooth to settle down and will aid with a temporary filling more often the filling will include medication which helps destroy any germs and protects against further infection.
2. Second Appointment
At your second appointment we examine the tooth thoroughly making sure all infection has now cleared.
The Dentist will then begin by replacing the temporary filling with a permanent one. Although every attempt is made root canal treatment does weaken the tooth and in some cases, it will need strengthening by a support crown.
At Fresh Smile Clinic we use only the finest specialist materials and cutting edge techniques to ensure a highest standard of care.
