Root Canal in St Neots, Cambridgeshire

What is a Root Canal Treatment?

A Root Canal Treatment, commonly referred to as a root canal, is a dental procedure aimed at saving a severely damaged or infected tooth. It involves the removal of the infected or inflamed pulp tissue from the tooth’s interior, followed by thorough cleaning, disinfection, and sealing of the root canals. This procedure is crucial for relieving pain, preventing further infection, and preserving the natural tooth. After a successful root canal, the tooth is typically restored with a dental crown to ensure its strength and functionality are maintained. Here at Priory Park Dental Practice, root canal treatments are performed by our skilled dentists, and they are a valuable solution for retaining teeth that might otherwise require extraction.

Who Needs Root Canal?

Severe Tooth Pain

Persistent, intense toothache or discomfort, especially when chewing or applying pressure to the tooth.

Sensitivity to Hot and Cold

Extreme sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, which can linger even after the temperature stimulus is removed.

Swelling and Abscess

Swelling, tenderness, or the presence of a pimple-like bump on the gums near the affected tooth, which can indicate an infection.

Deep Tooth Decay
