Root Canal Treatment In Stockport
Treat infection & stop pain from getting worse.
We offer root canal treatment to preserve teeth that have become damaged due to bacterial infection.
A root canal contains the living tissue that creates our teeth called the pulp. If and when this becomes infected – which can occur as a result of decay/damage or due to injury/accident – the tooth will effectively start to die from the inside. When left untreated for a long period of time, the result will most likely be a tooth extraction. Root canal treatment is a common and safe procedure that’s gotten much more sophisticated over the years. Receiving this treatment will significantly reduce the likelihood that you will need to remove the tooth.
We recommend you always have regular dental check-ups because it allows your dentist to identify any signs that the pulp tissue is infected. Symptoms may include:
- Pain when you bite or chew food,
- Sensitivity, which causes pain when you eat or drink,
- The tooth may appear to be coming loose,
- Swollen gum tissue around the affected tooth,
- Pus emerging from the affected tooth,
- Facial swelling.

Our highly-experienced dental hygienists will be able to confirm if a root canal treatment is the best option, and explain the procedure in detail to reassure you.
Root canal treatment aims to remove bacteria from the root canal system. The procedure is carried out under local anaesthetic, so you shouldn’t feel any pain or discomfort. Your dentist will then access the root canal system through the tooth’s crown. The infected pulp is removed and the tooth cleaned. If you have a dental abscess, then this will also be drained. Once the root canal has been cleaned, your dentist will enlarge the canal so that it can be easily filled. This process can take quite a long time to finish, so you may be asked to come back for another appointment if necessary.
We recognise that a trip to the dentist may be a daunting prospect for some people, and the idea of having root canal treatment may fill a few with dread. But we are fully trained and have supported countless nervous patients. We will do everything in our power to help you feel as relaxed as possible during treatment.
If you are nervous or worried, please do not hesitate to speak with our friendly team.
Following the treatment, it is vital that you take care of your teeth as they are still recovering from treatment. Any further trauma or damage could lead to further complications.
Try to keep your teeth as clean as possible, eat less sugary food or drinks like chocolate or coffee, and give up smoking as it will only aggravate the tooth.
Avoid hard foods such as apples or nuts until your treatment is completed. It is also common for there to be some temporary sensitivity. Taking regular painkillers can relieve any discomfort.
Schedule an appointment with us if you still have pain or swelling even after using painkillers.
