Questions about root canal treatments at Crouch Hall

  • What to expect during root canal treatment

    Our Crouch Hall dentists gently open the tooth, remove the infected nerve, flushes out the cavity, treats it with medication and seals it off to prevent reinfection. We administer a local anaesthetic so it feels no different to getting a regular dental filling. At a later date, we may restore the tooth with a dental crown. 

  • What’s the alternative to root canal treatment?

    Without root canal treatment, the only option will be to extract the tooth and replace it with an implant, removable denture, or a fixed bridge. Wherever possible, we will seek to preserve your tooth through root canal.  

  • Why is a crown often necessary to restore the tooth after a root canal?

    Root-filled teeth can break more easily than healthy teeth, so we often use a crown for protection after treatment.

Good news about root canal treatment 

For a long time, many people have mistakenly associated root canal treatment with discomfort.

However, root canal treatment actually relieves pain. Most people who come to Crouch Hall for this treatment are in significant pain when they arrive. This treatment takes the pain away!

This is how it works. When a tooth is infected or damaged, the nerves send out distress alerts. Often, the only way to relieve severe discomfort is to remove the nerve and seal the tooth to prevent reinfection. This resolves the pain.

At Crouch Hall Dental Care, we perform essential root canal therapy to rid you of debilitating pain and save your teeth from extraction.
