How to know if you need a root canal?
Endodontic treatment is necessary when the pulp, the soft tissue inside the root canal, becomes inflamed or infected. The inflammation or infection can have a variety of causes: decay repeated dental procedures on the tooth or a crack or chip in the tooth. In addition, an injury to a tooth may cause pulp damage even if the tooth has no visible chips or cracks. If pulp inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can cause pain or lead to an abscess.
What are the signs of needing a root canal?
There are a few symptoms that mean you might need a root canal—
How does endodontic treatment save the tooth?
The endodontist removes the inflamed or infected pulp, carefully cleans and shapes the inside of the root canal, then fills and seals the space. Afterward, you will return to your dentist, who will place a crown or other restoration on the tooth to protect and restore it to full function. After restoration, the tooth continues to function like any other tooth.
Will I feel pain during or after the root canal?
Many root canal procedures are performed to relieve the pain of toothaches caused by pulp inflammation or infection. With modern techniques and anaesthetics, most patients report that they are comfortable during the procedure.
For the first few days after treatment, your tooth may feel sensitive, especially if there was pain or infection before the procedure. This discomfort can be relieved with over-the-counter or prescription medications. Follow your endodontist’s instructions carefully.
Your tooth may continue to feel slightly different from your other teeth for some time after your endodontic treatment is completed. However, if you have severe pain or pressure or pain that lasts more than a few days, call us.
If anyone is nervous about getting fillers don’t be!! Dr Dinah Naasan is professional, caring and takes everything you say into consideration, including your fears and expectations. The entire process was completely painless. For someone who has a low pain threshold I never felt a thing! The results were instantaneous and with no bruising whatsoever. I was so self conscious about my lips before and now I couldn’t imagine my life without fillers. It has given me so much confidence.
Great dentist n I’m a big scardy cat.. make you feel at ease and always ask if I’m ok throughout the treatment.. highly recommend
Really lovely dental practice. Did everything possible to fit me in for an emergency appointment today. Receptionist Lindsey and Dr Naasan are excellent. Glad I’ve found a dentist that I actually don’t mind visiting!
I had wanted fillers in my nose for a long time to fix the bump I had- (non surgical nose job)- and I am so happy I had Dinah do it and I love the results! She is professional and easy to chat to which made me feel at ease. There was no bruising after the treatment and the results were instant. You can tell she has been doing injectables for a long time as it wasn't uncomfortable when she was doing the fillers- will 100% be coming back to Dinah to get this done again in the future!!
I have been going to Dinah now for almost two years for both Botox and Fillers . The results have been amazing and she has helped me achieve the natural results I was looking for , with the procedures being quick and pretty painless. I would highly recommend her services and her aftercare is first class also.
I can’t say enough good things about Dinah and would recommend her to anyone!
I wanted to straighten my two upper front teeth especially and, after consulting with Dr Dinah Naasan, I decided to go with a see through retainer clear align. I had my appointments every two weeks, no delays, everything went according to plan. I am very happy with the results and with the treatment overall. You can see the difference straight away and that’s what I wanted. I would definitely recommend this option for anyone who doesn’t want their retainer to be visible and want fast and effective results.
Excellent service, Dee puts you at ease and let's you know exactly what each procedure she is going to do in the most polite and knowledgeable manner. I would highly recommend.
