Digging out the rot in South East London

18 / 05 / 2013

Plaque is one of those really irritating things in life that just won’t go away in South East London; as soon as you’ve brushed it away, it simply returns to cause havoc. Sometimes it gets through and then once this has happened, it starts to attack the surfaces of the teeth. From this, caries breed and then full-on tooth decay that infects the inside of the teeth: you have two choices here; let it carry on and you will lose your tooth, contract gum disease and the jaw bone will begin to degenerate. Or, you can try and save the tooth and avoid all of these issues by having root canal treatment. When decay breaks into the tooth, the pulp and the roots become infected and in order to prolong the life of the tooth, it’s imperative that the pulp and the roots are taken out and then disinfected. Once-upon-a-time, this could be a complex operation because of the way roots can grow, today’s root canal treatment though has been refined thanks to laser techniques such as Waterlase, making the procedure fast and painless. Once the tooth is empty, it can be refilled and then crowned: but this is a warning and not only have you threatened your tooth and your oral health, but you have also run the risk of an abscess developing.
