Skilled endodontics in Hampstead
Root canal treatment is also known as endodontics, referring to when the pulp and nerves of the tooth have succumbed to infection. This kind of infection can cause a lot of pain and discomfort, but it may also cause no symptoms depending on the person. With or without symptoms, if no treatment is completed, the infection will get worse and will eventually kill the tooth which will then require extraction.
The nerve is inside the tooth in an area called the pulp chamber which also holds soft dental tissues, blood and the canals which hold the nerve. When we complete root canal treatment we seek to remove all infection from the pulp chamber which can take just one treatment, or several treatments depending on the complexity of your case.
It is extremely important that root canal treatment is completed in order to save the tooth. A root canal infection can also cause all kinds of unwanted symptoms including deep pain, signs of infection in the body such as a fever and nausea, and in some cases an abscess may occur which is extremely painful.
