When a tooth becomes badly decayed or infected a root canal treatment can be recommended to repair and save the tooth, removing risk of abscesses and serious infection. The root canal procedure involves the removal of the nerve and pulp of the tooth, before the tooth is cleaned and sealed.
At Kincorth Dental Practice we ensure the materials and techniques, we offer to our patients, give immediate positive results and pain relief from the first root canal appointment. We will clean the infected area so the tooth can be used again, as before, with no pain or any other symptoms.

A filled or decayed tooth with an abscess. The filling is removed to access the cavity. The root canals are reamed to remove the tooth nerves. Gutta-perchas are inserted to fill the root. These are then cut-off, sealed and the tooth filled. The abscess will reduce. A crown may be necessary later.
Root Treatment (Multi)
Root treatments on back teeth can be more complicated because they have a number of roots. The root canals are exposed. All roots then need to be excavated making sure that the entire tooth nerve is removed. The cavity is then filled with gutta percha and the tooth then filled.
