Root Canal Treatment in London

Do you complain of tooth pain often? Is there a bacterial infection developing in one of your natural teeth? If yes, you might want to visit an endodontist to get it checked and take a measure to eliminate your nerve pain.  Extraction is not the only option for cavity-infected teeth, , now you can restore your smile with root canal treatment.

What is a Root Canal?

One of the most common procedures, a root canal saves your natural teeth and prevents the need for dental implants or bridges. It is needed when the nerve of the tooth is infected Your tooth comprises a living tissue inside it called pulp which is made up of a collection of nerves and blood vessels. To save the tooth, bacteria and the infected pulp tissue, and decay are removed from the root canal system which is then thoroughly cleaned, disinfected and sealed with special dental materials.


It is done using local anesthesia at the patient’s tooth to eliminate discomfort during the process. Once done, you can return to your home or business with a renewed tooth.

Symptoms of a Tooth Infection

  • The common symptoms of a pulp infection include:

  • Pain while eating or drinking hot or cold food and drinks

  • Discomfort while biting or chewing

  • Severe toothache pain

  • Swelling in gums near the affected tooth

  • Pus oozing from the infected tooth

  • Facial swelling

  • Tooth discoloration


Sometimes the symptoms subside as the pulp dies away. Your tooth might appear to have healed but the infection within the tooth is still present and can creating bigger risks and problems, such as an abscess. So, it is recommended to see a dentist if you develop any of the above symptoms as infected pulp can’t heal by itself and leaving the infected tooth inside the mouth makes it worse.
