Root Canal Treatment Byford: Delivering a Painless Experience

A root canal saves the disturbed tooth by cleaning the pulp and moulding the canal, i.e., reshaping. The root canal is a boon for the Byford dentists dentist’s patients to smile openly, without getting self-conscious, thus saving the tooth. The root canal therapy takes about 30 minutes to 60 minutes, with 2 dental visits. In the worst and complex cases, the treatment continues for about 90 minutes to 1 hour.

What is Root Canal Treatment and why do I need it?

A badly affected or decayed tooth is repaired and saved by a treatment called the Root canal. The nerve and the pulp of a tooth are affected for reasons like decay, frequent dental procedures, fillings, crack, and even trauma to the face. In the course of a root canal procedure, the tooth nerve and pulp are pulled out to clean the inside area, and finally, it is sealed.

Without this treatment, the tissues surrounding the tooth start decaying and at last die. So, one needs the root canal treatment to be done to avoid the following effects like:

  • Swelling in the face, mouth, and even neck.
  • Bone wears out at the root.
  • Damaged nerves and pulp cause bacteria to breed and thus forming abscessed teeth.
  • In case of infection in the tooth, a pus-like substance is released. If it is unattended, the infection spreads and may result in difficult situations.
  • At times, a tooth looks yellowish or in some weird colour resulting from nerve damage. Such a situation with pain and sensitivity (to hot or cold) requires root canal therapy.

Frequently Asked Questions About Byford Root Canal Procedures

Cost of Root Canal Treatment in Byford?

The cost of root canal treatment in Byford depends upon several factors like:

  • Number of canals that needs to be filled
  • Requirement of crown

Is Root Canal Treatment Safe?

Should you rest after a root canal?

The concerned tooth is more sensitive during the recovery process. So, using the teeth for biting, chewing should be reduced as it would increase the existing pain. So, it is necessary to be extra careful with at least a couple of days without eating hard foods.
