Saving your teeth with Root Canal Treatment in London SE1

30 / 09 / 2011

Some of the greatest problems that arise in the mouth in London SE1, as with anywhere in the world, is that of tooth decay. It’s a villain that never goes away and even our best efforts to avoid it can often fall on barren land. Thankfully however, we have our dentist to fall back on to bail us out of trouble. Deep decay in the tooth leads to the pulp and the roots becoming infected and in order to save the tooth completely, the tooth will require a root canal. Now, this treatment of removing roots from inside the tooth has always had a lot of bad press and out of it has come some very frightening tales. But, although folk-lore never seems to move on, modern dentistry has. Once the tooth has gone beyond the realms of a simple filling, the dentist will have to remove all of the rotten matter from deep inside the tooth; the pulp has to be removed and then the roots also in order to fill the restore the tooth to its former glory and at least, give it a further ten years of life. The older ways of doing this, were by using a drill that could leave the mouth very sore indeed for days afterwards, but the modern use of lasers, digital imaging and computers have radically changed this procedure to the point that the whole operation is no more painful than a filling. Once this has been done, the tooth will then require a crown to ensure that it can operate in a natural way inside the mouth.
