Root Canal Treatment in Middleton, Manchester
Root canal treatment, also known as Endodontics, is a specialist dental procedure required when the pulp inside a tooth becomes infected. The tooth is saved by thoroughly clearing the root canal and removing bacteria.
When teeth are fractured, decayed or weakened over time, bacteria can enter the inside of the tooth and infect the soft tissue and nerves. This can be extremely painful. Root canal treatment is highly effective at eliminating the problem and also preventing the infection from recurring or spreading.
Before treatment, the area will be numbed by local anaesthetic. The dentist will then clean, disinfect and seal the root canals of the affected tooth. The procedure can be complex and may take some time. This depends on the individual case but typically the treatment takes from one to two hours. A second visit may be required.
