A great treatment for saving teeth

Here at Teeth & Smiles, we want to ensure that you have all the information with regard to opting for root canal treatment over having the problematic tooth extracted.

In this month’s blog, we focus on the benefits of root canal treatment.


Reduces PainRoot canal treatment will help to alleviate the pain and discomfort, by removing the infected pulp and nerve.Prevents abscess forming


Prevents abscess forming – in the early stages an infection can be painless, by undergoing root canal treatment at this stage it is possible to prevent the formation of a painful abscess.


Saves tooth – if left untreated the infection in the pulp can cause the tooth structure to deteriorate. This means that the tooth will eventually become unsalvageable and will need to be extracted.

Maintains biteImproves oral health – If left untreated the infection in the tooth can spread from the mouth into other parts of your body. Undergoing root canal treatment is a proactive way to protect your health and maintain your smile.


Maintains biteroot canal treatment maintains the natural bite. A few days after treatment you will be able to eat, drink and speak as normal. With an extraction, you will be left with a gap which may make it difficult to eat a varied diet and can affect speech. It also ensures that the biting pressure remains evenly spread across all teeth, protecting them from damage caused by uneven biting pressure.


Maintains confidence and self-esteem – with root canal treatment there is no need to worry about an un-slightly gap or expensive implant treatment to replace a missing tooth. Your smile will remain intact and looking its best.Maintains confidence and self-esteem
