Root canal therapy in Hounslow, West London.

    Endodontics, also known as root canal treatment, is a dental procedure designed to treat infection or irreversible inflammation of the nerve of a tooth. This may be caused by decay, a fracture, an existing deep filling or severe gum disease.

    If the nerve tissue becomes infected by bacteria it will begin to die, which could result in the loss of the tooth. There is also the risk that the infection could spread leading to a painful dental abscess (a pus filled swelling). The infection could then spread to your gums or the tissue and bones that support your teeth. Root canal treatment is designed to save the tooth and prevent the spread of infection.

    The infected tissue is removed from the tooth and the root canal is then cleaned of all bacteria. After the bacteria have been removed, the root canals are then filled using a rubber filling material, before being sealed. Root canal treatment is commonly perceived as being a painful procedure. In fact, in the hands of a properly trained dentist, root canal treatment is relatively painless, and it should be no more unpleasant than having a filling done.

    Your dentist will explain the procedure to you and will also discuss with you how many visits the treatment is likely to take as well as any treatment may be required on completion of the root canal treatment.

    An excellent practice

    “I have been attending this practice for a few years and would highly recommend it. The treatment, communication and clarity of information during the consultation are all excellent. I never get the impression that treatment is done unnecessarily and discussion of options and prices is always very clear. It would be good to get the old waiting room back again though and the only thing I do not like is the TV blaring away – there is not enough room for this! A great practice in every other way though!”

    kind and caring dentist

    “I registered with ivory dentist for my 5 years old son who has very bad toothache. As my son is scared to his previous dental clinic, I decided to switch the dentist. This was the best decision I made. He was seen on the same day. The dentist was very kind and patient and caring. The dentist is the best dentist so far I have seen. The dentist explained thoroughly. Not only the dentist, but also the receptionist is super sweet and helpful. I will recommend all my friends to this dentist. The best NHS dentist in Hounslow. Thank you Ivory clinic.”
