Root Canal Treatment
If the nerve has died within a tooth (due to trauma, decay etc) then the nerve needs to be removed and the channel filled to preserve the tooth and to prevent abscess formation.
Sometimes existing fillings or cavities in teeth have become so large that there is not an option to refill it. In this case we can usually crown the remaining portion of tooth.
In cases where there is a space, we can place a conventional bridge (a false tooth joined together by crowning teeth either side).
Sticky bridges can replace a space by attaching a wing from the false tooth to the back of a sound tooth.
Crowns and bridges are made by our dental technician colleagues in local laboratories, who work closely with us to achieve the best result.
As with all work sent outside of the practice, all have the British standards approval. They are not made abroad. They are all given a warranty against failure.
Patients who are covered by our care plan only pay for any laboratory charges, not the dentists time.
All patients are given an estimate of cost before work commences.
