What to Expect During a

ROOT CANAL

 

N

Xray – if a dentist suspects you may need a root canal, he will first take X-rays or examine existing X-rays to show where the decay is located.

N

Anesthesia – local anesthesia is administered to the affected tooth. Contrary to popular belief, a root canal is no more painful than a filling.

N

Pulpectomy – an opening is made and the diseased tooth pulp is removed

N

Filling – the roots that have been opened (to get rid of the disease pulp) are filled with gutta-percha material and sealed off with cement.

Root Canal Treatment

A root canal is a treatment to repair and save a badly damaged or infected tooth. The procedure involves removing the damaged area of the tooth (the pulp), cleaning and disinfecting it and then filling and sealing it. The common causes affecting the pulp are a cracked tooth, a deep cavity, repeated dental treatment to the tooth or trauma. The term “root canal” comes from cleaning of the canals inside the tooth’s root.

What to Expect During a ROOT CANAL
If you think you need a root canal, consult your dentist. There are a number of steps that occur over a few office visits.

 

OUR CLIENTS TESTIMONIALS

 

 

" I would like to congratulate Siobhan on having a first class Dentistry Practice in Donegal Town. My wife while out eating her lunch broke a crown at the front of her mouth. She phoned Blue Poppy right away & within two hours Siobhan and her team had the problem sorted. Its at times like this that we really appreciate such a fantastic service. We will certainly be recommending your Dental Practice. "

Eddie McGaffery - E&J Oil Services Ltd.

"My daughter & I recently attented Blue Poppy Dentistry. Our patient experience was exceptional. From the aura of the scented candles as you climb the stairs, to the very warm & welcoming greetings from Pauline at reception. I felt relaxed. Coming from an era of the dreaded 'School Dentist', I had a certain apprehension of what was to come. With Siobhan, you not only get a dentist but also an Orthodontist. She is a very caring, sensitive, gentle person and extremely competent as an Orthodontist. We are delighted to recommend Siobhan & her great team to our family & friends. ”
