If a tooth becomes infected by tooth decay or gum disease, we are able to help patients save their infected tooth using root canal therapy. This process requires the removal of the nerve tissue that is contained within the root system of the tooth. Once the nerve has been removed, the tooth no longer has any feeling, and the remaining tooth structure can then be restored with a filling or dental crown.
Do I need Root Canal Therapy?
Do you suffer from any of the following symptoms?
- Discomfort when chewing or biting
- Dull ache or severe tooth pain
- Sensitivity to hot or cold
- Discomfort that wakes you up at night
If you answered yes to any of the above, you might very well need root canal therapy. Please call us on 020 7229 8716 and schedule for an evaluation.
Be aware not all teeth that are in need of root canal therapy will cause pain. It is possible to not have any pain but still need a root canal.
