At our 5-star rated clinic in Guilford, our highly skilled root canal treatment specialists can work deep inside your damaged teeth to return them to good health and ensure they do the job they were designed to do. How root canal treatment is done To treat the infection in the root canal, the bacteria need to be removed. This can be done by either:

  • removing the bacteria from the root canal system (root canal treatment)
  • removing the tooth (extraction)
But removing the tooth is not usually recommended as it’s better to keep as many of your natural teeth as possible. Before having root canal treatment, you’ll usually be given a local anaesthetic. This means the procedure should be painless and no more unpleasant than having a filling. After the bacteria have been removed, the root canal is filled and the tooth sealed with a filling or crown. In most cases the inflamed tissue near the tooth will heal naturally. youtube link
