Dr. Cheong

After avoiding a dentist for 10 years, through fear and bad experiences, I was recommended by a friend who had been treated with sedation at Twickenham Dental Care. For anyone who can't face dental treatment, sedation was a fantastic option

Before receiving treatment with Dr. Cheong, I was concerned about pain. Not only was the treatment painless, I did not feel ANY pain afterwards. I highly recommend Twickenham Dental Care to anyone interested in receiving professional and painless Implants.

Root Canal in Twickenham

Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment (also called endodontics) is needed when the pulp inside your tooth becomes infected through tooth decay or damaged by an injury to your mouth. This infection may spread through the root canal system and could eventually lead to an abscess, causing a great deal of discomfort. If root canal treatment is not carried out, the tooth may need to be taken out. Root canal therapy involves the following:

  1. First, local anaesthetic will be administered to ensure no discomfort is felt during treatment.
  2. The tooth will be prepared with a drill, allowing access to the root canal system.
  3. The root canal system will be thoroughly cleaned out to remove all infection and pulp.
  4. The root canal system is then filled and sealed temporarily with a crown.
  5. The tooth is checked at a later visit and when all the infection has cleared, the tooth is permanently filled.

Root canal treatment is a skilled and time-consuming procedure and most courses of treatment will involve two or more visits.
