Dentists who specialise in treating teeth where the pulp has been harmed by trauma or decay are known as endodontists.
What is an endodontist?
The pulp chamber and roots of the tooth can be cleaned and preserved, maintaining both the tooth's function and the patient's appearance and bite.
Although all dentists are qualified to treat and identify straightforward pulp illnesses, patients are referred to endodontists when the situation is more complex in order to ensure the best predictable outcomes.
Endodontist specialists have further post-graduate training that ranges from 2-3 years, as well as greater experience.
Our endodontist possesses cutting-edge tools that regular dentists might not have access to. The best chance for salvaging your tooth is to visit an endodontist.
Endodontists are effective and precise since they specialise in endodontic therapy only. This translates into a quicker healing process, a happier, pain-free experience, and more predictable results.
We can treat patients quickly and comfortably because to cutting-edge technologies like operating microscopes, digital imaging, CBCT scans, ultrasonic, and Ni-Ti rotary instrumentation.
The therapy may be carried out with a great degree of accuracy thanks to the microscope utilised. High magnification also makes it possible for endodontists to treat the intricate interior anatomy of teeth without removing excessive amounts of tooth structure or causing further harm.
Evidence-based research demonstrates that endodontists are more successful because of their training, tools, and experience.
Many patients are concerned about having a root canal, but today's root canal procedures are no more painful than receiving a filling. We are experienced at making sure you are at ease during your treatment.
Why do I require Root Canal Treatment?
If the soft tissue in the centre of your tooth has gotten infected or damaged, you will require root canal therapy. This can occur for a variety of causes, but typically occurs when there has been a break in the tooth's hard exterior caused by decay or trauma, allowing germs to enter and infect the pulp's delicate tissues.
Although the indicators of an infected tooth might vary, they include:
- Persistent sensitivity to cold or heat
- Unexpected pain
- Discomfort is preventing sleep because of it
- Swelling of the tooth's surrounding gums
- When you bite on a tooth, there may be pain or tenderness.
- Changing the colour of the tooth
Make an appointment with your dentist if you believe you have an infected tooth. To find out if the pulp has gotten irritated, we can use x-rays. We will set up an appointment if you need a root canal to relieve the symptoms.
Thank you so much to @smilehubhubdentalclinic for sorting me out with a last minute cracked tooth! 💕🙏
Sunday morning dentist needed badly and they had one! Amazing service!! Thank you so much. Everyone's so kind.
Dr. Laura Fee and the entire team are amazing, so friendly throughout and really reassuring! I recently had a wisdom tooth extraction under sedation and didn’t feel a thing. Everything was explained very clearly and I felt totally comfortable - would recommend this dental practice to anyone, they really do go above and beyond!
Thank you Smile Hub for the caring experience that you gave to me yesterday. I was nervous but your team were amazing at calming me and doing the wisdom teeth extractions super quick with no sedation. I really appreciate it! I couldn’t recommend Smile Hub highly enough.
Brilliant service- dealt with me on a bank holiday at 10pm when I couldn't get an appointment anywhere else- staff are lovely & dentist amazing- highly recommend.
