ROOT CANAL TREATMENT
Dr. Maurer is one of the top dentists in the UK with a special interest in Root Canal Treatment, qualified to offer you the best solution available based on your needs.
The procedure is intended to treat or instantly alleviate pain and save the involved tooth from extraction. Not all teeth can be saved, particularly those which are decayed or broken deep underneath the gum line, compromising the future prosthetic restoration after the root canal in terms of long term retention, performance, and bone loss caused by to close crown margin in relation to bone level.
During a Root Canal procedure, Dr. Maurer will painlessly remove the infected or exposed pulp, will clean and shape the inside of the root canal, and then will fill and seal the space. Complex root canal systems in back teeth and inflammatory processes at the tip of the root can make the procedure stretch over 2 to 3 appointments. A very high percentage of root canal patients will experience immediate pain relief. Even pain while biting could still be present due to inflammation in the surrounding bone area at the tip of the root, this will gradually disappear. If the tooth is severely compromised, the suitable restoration for the root treated tooth is a crown or an overlay.
