Sunshine Dental Root Canal Treatment

Sunshine Dental Root Canal

What is a Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal treatment is a dental procedure used to treat infection at the centre of the tooth. A tooth can become infected when the bacteria that lives in your mouth invades the network of tissue fibres, nerves and blood vessels. This can happen if a tooth is badly decayed or is damaged as a result of trauma.

If left untreated the pulp of the tooth will begin to die, allowing the bacteria to then multiply and spread causing symptoms such as pain when eating or drinking hot or cold foods. As the infection progresses these symptoms may disappear and you may think the tooth has healed itself when in actual fact the infection is spreading through the root canal system.

You will eventually experience symptoms such as:

  • Swelling of the gum near the affected tooth
  • Pus oozing from the affected tooth
  • Facial swelling
  • The tooth becoming darker in colour

It is extremely important that if you are experiencing toothache or any of the above symptoms that you visit a dentist as an infected tooth cannot heal by itself. If you need help, call us on 0115 9733591.

My experience with Sunshine Dental has been wonderful. They’re always really cooperative, and are really patient with me. My dental hygiene has always been something I’ve struggled with, but I have never felt judged at all by any of the team as I have at other practices before. On top of having an ongoing dentist phobia (which has improved thanks to Sunshine), I’m also autistic and very sensitive to sound and light in particular. The team at Sunshine Dental have always been really patient with me when I’ve visited, letting me have breaks so I don’t get overstimulated. Last time I went, I was expecting to have a load of cavities (shockingly, I didn’t - guess I just have strong teeth and have been lucky) but Vishal was really caring and explained everything so that nothing was a surprise to me. Although I haven’t been for an appointment for a while due to being away at university, I’m always happy with the service when I do go. And although I still have a way to go with my phobia and anxiety, I’m definitely a lot better considering it took a while to even get me through the door when I first came! These days I find that it’s a lot less scary than I think, and my dental hygiene is slowly improving.
