Kathryn is a fantastic dentist who really cares for her patients. Always takes her time to explain what you should expect and options available. I just had root canal and she was brilliant as always.

Root canal treatment is also known as root fillings or endodontic treatment.
The procedure is needed when the nerve or blood supply of the tooth becomes infected from decay or injury. Sometimes tooth decay can make its way to the nerve of the tooth causing pain and sensitivity. The treatment involves cleaning out the infected tissue and in most cases, saves the tooth so preventing the need for dental implants or bridges.
When the blood or nerve supply becomes infected, it may spread throughout the root canal system, which can lead to an abscess. The infected area of your mouth starts to collect pus and leads to swelling of the tissues, as well as varying amounts of pain from dull to severe.
The treatment is usually very successful at preserving the decaying tooth and preventing further infection.
No. Root canal treatment is usually carried out under local anaesthetic so you won’t feel any pain. You may experience some tenderness afterwards, which will gradually disappear over time.
The alternative is to have the tooth removed. When the blood or nerve supply is destroyed it will not be able to heal and leaving the mouth infected can lead to an abscess, which can be painful.
It is always recommended to have as many natural teeth as possible, so removing the tooth entirely is not preferred over root canal treatment.
