You may need root canal treatment if you have fractured a tooth, allowing the nerve to be exposed or if you have an infection at the centre of the tooth and the team at GDC Liverpool are on hand to help. Root canal treatment isn’t as foreboding as it sounds; the treatment is carried out with the latest technology and we can assure you that it is a painless procedure.
Our team at Gentle Dental Care understand that a trip to the dentist may be daunting but we are confident that you will feel at ease when visiting us for your dental care.
When performing a root canal treatment, the nerve is removed and the canal is flushed out to allow it to be widened for treatment. Using a special rubber filling material, the canal is filled and the root canal is covered, either by placing a filling or porcelain inlay/onlay on the crown surface of the tooth. This treatment is done over a series of appointments and if several teeth are affected, additional canals may have to be filled.
