ENDODONTICS

Root fillings or re-root fillings to treat infections of the roots and bone around the teeth.

 

At our Teddington dental practice, we provide expert endodontic care to preserve the health of your teeth and gums.  We also offer emergency dental care should you need urgent treatment.

What is endodontics? 

Endodontics is a branch of dentistry focused on diagnosing and treating conditions related to the dental pulp and tissues surrounding the roots of the teeth. Our skilled dentists are dedicated to helping you maintain a healthy smile and alleviate any discomfort associated with root canal infections. 

Endodontic treatments typically involve root canal therapy, which is performed to treat infections or inflammation within the dental pulp, the soft tissue inside the tooth. When bacteria penetrate the pulp due to deep decay, trauma, or cracks in the tooth, it can lead to infection, pain, and abscess formation. Root canal therapy involves removing the infected or damaged pulp, cleaning and disinfecting the root canal system, and filling it with a biocompatible material to seal the tooth and prevent further infection. 

In cases where a previous root canal treatment has failed or complications arise, re-root canal therapy may be necessary to address persistent infection or reinfection of the root canal system. Our experienced dentists are skilled in performing re-treatments to ensure the success and longevity of your tooth's health.
