Root Canal

Here at The Barn Dental Clinic, we believe in preserving your natural teeth for as long as possible. That’s why our dental experts often advise root canal treatment in preference to removing an infected tooth. We have a very high success rate within our practice for root canal treatment. This is because we only proceed with root canal if we are confident that it has a high chance of being a success and is the right option for you.

How does root canal treatment work?

The aim of root canal treatment is to get rid of the damaged, dying or dead nerve. To remove damaged pulp and the bacteria that are causing the infection. It is a skilled procedure that involves removing inflamed or dead nerves and blood vessels from the centre of your tooth. This is done by drilling a hole through the top of your tooth to the root canal and removing the dead tissues. The empty root canal is then cleaned, a temporary filling is put in and the tooth left to settle usually advised one week. The tooth is checked at a later visit and when all the infection has cleared, the tooth is permanently filled.

What if my existing root canal is failing?

Once the tooth has undergone the root canal procedure over time the tooth can become brittle. It is sometimes advised a plastic fibre post is drilled into the largest canal of the tooth and a strong core foundation built up. In such cases, it will also often be recommended that the tooth is protected with a crown, enabling you to preserve your natural tooth for as long as you can.
