The advantages of root canal treatment

Root canal treatment (also known as endodontics) is used to save a tooth when the internal pulp tissue has become infected. The procedure involves the cleaning out of the tooth canals and filling them with a special replacement material called gutta percha, before the tooth is securely sealed.

If the condition is left untreated then it can lead to the tooth having to be removed. At Hoddesdon Dental Surgery we aim to save natural teeth wherever possible. Root canal treatment is generally more cost-effective than extraction in the long-term, as it avoids the need for a prosthetic replacement such as a dental implant.

About the procedure

At the first appointment, the infected pulp is removed along with any abscesses that may be present. The root canal is then cleaned and shaped in preparation for the replacement material. A temporary filling is inserted and the tooth is left to settle. The tooth is checked at a later appointment and, if all the infection has cleared, it is permanently filled and sealed.
