Root canal treatment typically takes 1 or 2 appointments: the severity of the infection will determine how many visits are required.
During the first appointment, the living tissues inside your tooth (this is called the pulp), is removed, and the root canals are thoroughly cleaned. The tooth is then given a temporary filling. This is to ensure the infection is fully eliminated before the process is completed. So that we can create a bespoke crown to cover your tooth, we will take digital scans to obtain an exact model of your tooth.
At a second appointment, we will check that the infection is no longer present and shape and fill the root canals of the previously infected tooth. We can then place your bespoke crown over the top.
