Root Canal in Steyning Sussex - Down House Dental PracticeAbout Root Canal Treatment

Teeth that are extremely damaged, or decayed, are an infection risk. To prevent infection entering your blood or nerve supply, our root canal treatment is carried out. During the root canal treatment, our dentist will thoroughly clean your problem teeth, remove any infection present and administer a filling to restore the tooth shape.

Avoids the need for tooth extraction

If you have painful toothache and believe that your tooth may be infected, please get in touch with us as soon as possible. Any delay may lead to you losing your tooth and further pain, which a root canal can usually prevent. An anaesthetic will be used to ensure that our root canal treatment is comfortable. Once complete and healed, your tooth will be pain-free, with a discreet, white filling, porcelain inlay or crown on top.

A root canal treatment is required when the soft tissue inside your teeth becomes infected by decay or injury. The infection needs to be removed before it spreads, causing you more pain and future dental complications. Your dentist will access the soft tissue of your root canal by making a tiny hole in your tooth. The canals are then refilled and a filling applied.

It’s worth bearing in mind that root canal treatment is made in an attempt to save a tooth, however, not all root canal treatment is successful. It all depends on the tooth involved. There’s still a chance the tooth may fail following the procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it painful?

You won’t feel any pain due to the local anaesthetic which will be administered prior to the treatment. If you have slight pain following the treatment, you can use over-the-counter painkillers.

How long does the treatment take?

The treatment may be over in 30 minutes, or it may take up to an hour. The length of the treatment time depends on the severity of the case.

How do I know if I need a root canal?

If you are experiencing severe pain in your tooth, a dull ache in your mouth, discomfort when you wake up at night, discomfort due to biting and extreme sensitivity to hot or cold, please give our practice a call. Our dentist will examine your mouth to see whether the root canal is necessary.

What happens during treatment?

A local anaesthetic will be administered. When the tooth is numbed, an opening will be made in the top of it. The canals will be cleaned and space made for the filling. A filling will be fitted immediately after the treatment.

What are the advantages of root canal treatment over extraction?

The major advantage of root canal treatment is that you get to keep the tooth and avoid all dental problems associated with tooth loss such as drifting teeth, bite problems and jawbone deterioration.

What happens if I don't have the treatment?

If you need root canal treatment and you try to ignore the problem, you will find yourself in increasing amounts of pain and your chances of getting an abscess are increased.

This review is for Tesh the hygenist. I honestly can't recommend Tesh more highly. He is incredibly thorough and clearly knows what he's doing. Tesh is so good I have upped the amount of times I see him to every four months rather than every six. He keeps detailed notes of every visit so he can carefully track how I'm doing and help me target specific areas of concern. As I am getting older keeping my gums healthy becomes more important as I really want to keep as many teeth as possible in old age! Tesh is always upbeat, very encouraging and also keen to know how I and my family are doing.
