Root Canal Treatment (Endodontics)

Root Canal Treatment (Endodontics) is needed when the nerve inside the tooth becomes infected through decay or trauma.

You may not feel any pain in the early stages of the infection. In some cases, your tooth could darken in colour. This can mean that the tooth has died or is dying.

If the root canal is left untreated, a painful abscess may develop, and the infection could spread. A tooth with dead pulp will usually have to be removed.

The Treatment

Our Root Canal Treatment clears up the infection by thoroughly cleaning out the root canal and sealing it. We can usually save the tooth this way.

It is a skilled and time consuming procedure which can take two or more visits. We will provide you with an estimate and treatment plan at the start of your treatment.

The Results

The treatment has a high success rate and usually lasts many years. However, if the infection does return we can repeat the treatment.

In the past a tooth would often darken after Root Canal Treatment, but Smile Studio Penarth uses modern techniques to reduce the risk of this. If there is any discolouration we can offer a number of treatments to restore the natural appearance of your teeth.
