Root Canal Treatment in Leixlip

Should your blood or nerve supply be infected by decay or damage you may require root canal treatment. If not treated, any infection has the potential to spread through the root canal system and can result in a painful abscess ultimately requiring a tooth to be removed. If a root canal treatment is deemed necessary, please relax. Dr.Browne has undergone extensive post graduate training in the provision of these treatments.

All treatments will be carried out completely painlessly, under the isolation of rubber Dam using only brand new single use instruments for each individual procedure. It must be understood that in many cases following root canal procedure a crown or some other extensive restoration will be needed

No. We provide our patients with local anaesthetic which will make the procedure painless and feels no different to having an ordinary filling installed.
Any infection present in the root canal will be removed by your dentist who will then clean the root. Finally, the root will be filled to prevent any further infection taking place.
Despite being a painless process, the procedure is a lengthy and complex one requiring at least two visits to the dentist.
The first visit will involve the removal of any pulp that has become infected. If there is an abscess present, this will be drained. We will then shape and clean the root canal before installing a temporary filling. A period of settling is then required.
The following visit (or visits) will involve checking the progress of the tooth. Once all the infection has cleared the tooth will then be permanently filled.
The advancement of modern dental methods means the treatment should not leave the tooth with any discolouration. However, should any discolouration take place there are a number of different methods to alleviate this. The treatment of a root canal tends to be a successful procedure. Should any infection recur the process can be repeated.
Should you make the decision not to have root canal treatment your other option is to have the tooth removed. The reason for this is that once the pulp is destroyed it doesn’t have the potential to heal again. We do not recommend that patients leave a tooth that has become infected in situ. An extraction can be a worthwhile option but we believe that retaining your natural teeth is always the best option and would recommend Root Canal treatment as the go to option.
Yes. We do, however, recommend strengthening the tooth with a crown to give it extra strength.

As with any teeth, Root-treated teeth should be cleaned no less that once every day. The use of a fluoride toothpaste is recommended and other means of dental hygiene techniques should be practiced. We advise all our patients to avoid sugary drinks or snacks and that you maintain regular dental check-ups with your dentist.
