Root canal treatments are used to treat and remove infection in the interior of the tooth – often also called the ‘dental pulp’.

At Deansgate Dental Studio, our highly skilled team are able to perform endodontic treatments in-practice, allowing our patients to receive the treatment they need in a comfortable and relaxing environment. Dr Jabir Kazi has built a great reputation with his root canal work to the extent other dentists send him the cases they feel might be beyond their current skill set. He also runs teaching sessions for dentists wanting to improve their root canal work – so you can be sure you’re in good hands and receiving the highest quality of care.

What is a root canal treatment?

Root canal treatments are the most commonly performed endodontic treatment, and probably also the most well-known. In fact, they used to have something of a ‘bad’ reputation among patients, but thanks to advanced techniques and technologies, not to mention our highly trained and gentle team, root canal treatments at Deansgate Dental Studio are nothing to be worried about. Designed to remove infection from the root/interior of the tooth, root canal treatments can prevent the spread of infection and save a tooth from extraction.

What are the symptoms related to needing a root canal treatment?

If you’re experiencing increased sensitivity, or pain or difficulty when chewing or biting down, then this could be a sign you’re in need of a root canal treatment. In advanced cases, infection of the interior of the tooth can also cause the tooth to become loose or even cause an abscess. In such cases, pain can manifest as a dull throbbing ache or as a sharp shooting pain

How long does the treatment take?

Most root canal treatments can be carried out over 1-2 appointments. In more advanced cases, we may need to extend treatment across three or more appointments.

What happens during the treatment?

We pride ourselves on being thorough at Deansgate Dental Studio so we will take a number of X-rays which may also include a 3-dimensional CBCT scan to plan our work before we even touch the tooth. This ensures you are fully informed of the risks and benefits and also how likely the treatment is to work, as well as how long you can expect the tooth to last.

During the treatment appointment, we’ll first apply local anaesthetic, so you don’t feel any pain while you’re being treated. We’ll then clean the root canals thoroughly and remove any infection that is present before applying a rubber-type material to fill in the area and seal it back up.

Will I need a crown after my root canal treatment?

In some cases, we may need to place a crown at the end of the treatment. This is to ensure the tooth is restored to full function and is dependent on the extent of infection, and how much of the natural tooth has been damaged. By placing a crown, we can help to safeguard the root canal work that has been carried out. Most failed root canal treated teeth occur due to the tooth fracturing, and placing a crown can greatly reduce this risk.

Will the area be painful after treatment?

It is normal to experience some short term discomfort in the area that has been treated, especially once the anaesthetic has worn off. If this happens, then over-the-counter painkillers such as ibuprofen or paracetamol are recommended.
