Root canals


Root canal dentist treatment at Didsbury Dental Practice, Manchester

Endodontics is the study of the dental pulp and supporting tissues and any disease or injury to it usually requires specific treatment in order to save the tooth.

In root canal treatment the teeth are treated by isolating them under a protective barrier (rubber dam) and enhanced optics and magnification are employed. The procedure normally takes 1-2 visits with each lasting about an hour.

The best option for most patients is to retain their natural teeth rather than have a replacement, and the long-term success of root canal treatment can equal or surpass implants in some cases. It is also often more desirable to save the tooth than have it removed and replaced with a dental implant.
