Emergency Root Canal Treatment
& Same-Day Appointments in Byford
Root canal treatment eliminates the infection and protects the decontaminated tooth. In short, the dentist at our Byford clinic removes the damaged tissue to cease the infection from spreading and also puts an end to the pain. Common signs that one needs an emergency root canal are as follows:
- Intolerable pain: A person suffering from unbearable tooth pain related to the pulp chamber requires an immediate dentist consultation.
- Pus from the tooth: The infected tooth releases pus; when this is left unattended, the infection spreads and may result in horrible situations
- Severely damaged tooth: At times, trauma results in a damaged tooth; at this time root canal becomes necessary from losing the tooth.
- Tooth discolouration: A discoloured tooth is the result of nerve damage. Such a situation with pain and sensitivity (to hot or cold) requires root canal therapy.

What Happens If I Don't Get a Root Canal?
Have you been suggested root canal therapy by a local dentist? Then do it instantly irrespective of any situation you are in, like fear, pain, lack of time, inability to afford the treatment. This may help in saving the tooth and losing it.
Like other infections in our body, the infected pulp should also be treated on time without delay. If not treated at the correct time, then the situation may get worse. At times, the pain or symptoms may fade away, but the problem persists with the sign of dead nerves inside the tooth. In the worst case, if this problem is left untouched, then the infection would spread to blood, jaw, and other parts of the body too.
