faq's

A root canal treatment, also known as endodontic therapy, is a dental procedure used to treat infections or damage within the inner pulp of a tooth. You may need a root canal if the pulp inside your tooth becomes inflamed or infected due to factors like deep cavities, cracks, fractures, or dental trauma. This treatment helps save your natural tooth and relieve pain.

Root canal treatments have come a long way in terms of comfort. While some patients may experience mild discomfort, the procedure itself is performed under local anaesthesia, ensuring you feel minimal to no pain during the treatment. Afterwards, any residual discomfort can often be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.

The duration of a root canal treatment varies based on factors such as the tooth's location and the complexity of the infection. On average, the procedure can take one to two hours. We prioritise thoroughness and precision to ensure the best possible outcome.

After a root canal, you may experience some sensitivity and discomfort, but it's generally safe to eat and drink normally. However, it's advisable to avoid extremely hot or cold foods and beverages immediately after the procedure while the anaesthesia wears off. Be cautious with chewing to prevent any discomfort.

In many cases, a dental crown is recommended after a root canal treatment. The crown helps protect the tooth, which may have been weakened by the procedure or by the initial damage or infection. It also restores the tooth's appearance and function, ensuring long-lasting results.
