Root Canals 


Root Canals

Root canal treatment is one of the most complex dental procedures carried out. It is a skilled and time-consuming procedure.

Our caring staff is accomplished in treating the most difficult root canal treatment cases. We often have great success in treating patients who are experiencing pain or want to save their natural tooth, which might otherwise need extraction. By choosing Root canal treatment, you are choosing to keep your natural teeth. If left untreated, you could experience greater discomfort and it could lead to a serious infection. 

Treatments are performed to the highest standards using the latest techniques and materials. Our Dentists have extensive experience in this treatment and will ensure every possible step is taken to make you feel relaxed and at ease. A local anesthetic is also used to assist in your comfort. 

Signs you may require root canal treatment:  
  • Tooth sensitivity to sweets or hot and cold liquids.
  • Pain with biting pressure.
  • Constant or intermittent throbbing toothache and pain.
  • Tissue swelling of the face.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms or suspect you may require root canal treatment, please make an appointment with Guildford Dental Practice as soon as possible and we will take care of this urgent dental treatment.

After the Treatment

After root canal treatment is over, a temporary filling is placed over the tooth which needs to be replaced with a crown as soon as possible. Tooth becomes brittle after root canal treatment. The purpose of the crown is to restore the tooth's strength and protect it from cracking. If the temporary filling is left too long, there are chances that bacteria from your mouth will reinfect the tooth.  

The tooth may be sore for two to three days after the treatment. The worse the infection and inflammation you had, the more sensitive the tooth will be after treatment. Avoid chewing on the affected side.

The pulp which is removed during root canal treatment is the part that responds to temperature. After the removal of infected pulp, your tooth will no longer be sensitive to hot or cold.
