Saving damaged or painful teeth

Dental care for
root canal treatment

When you are suffering from a damaged, infected, or painful tooth, we will always endeavour to save your natural tooth before we think about extraction. Treating and saving is always better than replacing, which is why we offer root canal treatment.

A root canal treatment is necessary when the pulp within your tooth is irreversibly damaged through a developed cavity. This pulp can be very painful, but we can successfully save the tooth using root canal treatment. We do this by removing the infected pulp and sealing the cavity with a strong dental material, helping to prevent further infection and restoring comfortability and function to your tooth.

  • Save your natural tooth rather than removing it
  • Treat the pain and discomfort of infection
  • Seal off the tooth to restore form and function
  • This treatment only requires a local anaesthetic
  • Attentive dental team will ensure your comfort and trust

Don’t grin and bear it, receive the expert treatment of our dental team at Claregate Dental in Wolverhampton and ensure the continuation of your dental health.

Frequently asked
questions…

Find the answers you’ve been searching for your questions about root canal treatment in Wolverhampton!

We believe an informed patient is a happy patient, so do get in touch if you would like to find out more about our treatments.

  1. How is root canal treatment performed?

    Once we’ve made certain of your suitability, your root canal treatment is performed by first administering a local anaesthetic to the area. Once in effect, we then remove the damaged pulp from the tooth using a series of dental files. When we are satisfied with the pulp removal, we then seal off the cavity from any further infection or interference.

  2. What are the symptoms of needing a root canal?

    If you experience severe toothache and pain when chewing or biting, prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, discolouration, and swollen and tender gums, you might need a root canal. You could even notice an abscess on the gum. In any case, you should seek out a dental professional’s advice.

  3. What is dental pulp and how does it become infected?

    The pulp is the nerve tissue, blood vessels, and connective tissue that extends from the crown of your tooth to the tip of the root in your jawbone. If food and bacteria are left to build up on your teeth, they will eventually eat away at your protective enamel and reveal the more sensitive layers beneath. When these cavities are left untreated, the bacteria continue to burrow until they reach and infect the pulp at the centre of your tooth.

  4. Does this treatment hurt?

    Living with an infected tooth actually hurts far more than this reparative treatment does! Your treatment may feel a little uncomfortable, but it should not be painful after receiving the local anaesthetic and in comparison to the infected nerve tissue of the pulp.

  5. Can I have root canal treatment on the NHS?

    Yes, you may receive this treatment as one of our NHS subsidised treatment. This is partially funded by the NHS, with your subsidising the remaining balance in order to keep essential dentistry affordable.
