We can help to relieve dental pain

Root canal treatment, otherwise known as Endodontics, is carried out in order to relieve dental pain caused by inflamed or infected nerves inside the tooth, which can happen due to dental decay, trauma, or even a deep filling placed inside the tooth.

Endodontics can seem scary, but our specialist Endodontist will make it as comfortable as possible. A root canal involves removing the pulp chamber and nerves of the tooth and cleaning the root canal system to remove the causes of inflammation and infection, which is then filled to prevent bacterial re-infection.

Benefits of a root canal

  • Relieve dental pain
  • Save an infected tooth
  • Treat gum inflammation
  • Remove infected tissue

I was terrified but the whole experience has changed my perspective of what a dental practice is.Dr Ravi and the whole team where kind and understanding and made me comfortable and safe.The environment was very clean and all COVID precautions were very well observed. I went for a root canal treatment... which I wasn't prepared for I was thinking just get the tooth out and be done. But I cant thank Dr Ravi enough for helping me make the decision to save the tooth.  I would highly recommend them to anyone like me nervous of the dentist chair. A very professional service which is delivered with care and compassion.

Root canal treatment at Brookside

Endodontics is more commonly known as ‘root canal treatment’.

Root canal treatment is carried out in order to relieve dental pain and allow you to save your tooth. This treatment becomes necessary when the nerves inside a tooth become inflamed or infected by bacteria, which can happen due to dental decay, trauma, or a deep filling placed inside the tooth. The nerve chamber, ‘dental pulp’, lies in the centre of the tooth and nerves travel from the chamber through the roots inside ‘root canals’ to exit at the tip of the roots. During root canal treatment, the pulp chamber and nerves are carefully removed and the root canal system is cleaned, shaped and disinfected to remove the causes of inflammation and infection that are responsible for the dental pain or abscess. Filling material is then placed inside the root canals to fill the spaces and prevent bacterial re-infection.
