(Root Canal Dentistry)
We provide exceptional endodontic treatment at Quorn Dental Practice and Implant Clinic. Also known as root canal treatment, endodontics is concerned with treating the inside of the tooth. This form of treatment is required when the nerve of a tooth has been infected through either decay or injury. If a root canal treatment is not performed, the infection can spread, resulting in an abscess and/or possible tooth or teeth extraction.
Root canal treatment is a highly skilled and precise procedure and more than one appointment may be needed.
In all cases, state of the art equipment, including high powered microscopy, digital radiography, rotary/ultrasonic preparation and thermal obturation are used at Quorn Dental Practice and Implant Clinic.
How long does the treatment take?
It depends upon the case in question, however, most root canal treatment cases are completed over the course of a couple of dental visits.
Is endodontic treatment painful?
With our hi-tech equipment and skillful dentists there is little to no pain involved. Your treating dentist will also use a local anaesthetic to numb the tooth and gums so you remain comfortable during the procedure.
How long does recovery take?
Recovery from an endodontic treatment is quick and mild tenderness will alleviate within a few days.
