Treatment for infection within the tooth

To prevent or reverse infection of badly damaged and decayed teeth, it may be necessary to carry out a root canal treatment. Though possessed of a fearsome reputation, the procedure is now well understood and produces excellent long lasting results with minimal discomfort.

What is Root Canal Treatment?

Tiny canals in your tooth become infected and can cause quite severe pain. The purpose of a root canal is to save a badly infected tooth. If not performed extraction of the tooth is commonly required. The infected canals are cleared then filled. It is quite common for the tooth to require a crown or a filling.

You might need a root canal if one or more of your teeth have become infected and there is severe damage to the pulp of your tooth.

Things to look out for include:

  • Although simple root canals can be performed by a general dentist, more complex root canals (such as those on your rear teeth) may require a specialised Endodontist.
  • Commonly a root canal treatment will require a crown as well. Be aware of this potential additional cost
  • Hugh advances in root canals have been made over the last decade,  so make sure your dentist is up to date
What is the procedure like?

The tooth has small canals filled with what is known as pulp: these reach right down into its root. The tooth’s canals may become infected and the pulp within them is first removed in a procedure referred to as a pulpotomy. The canals are then temporarily filled with an alkaline paste and the tooth is left to settle during which time the paste thoroughly disinfects the tooth.

A second appointment about a week afterwards is necessary to complete the procedure. The pulpotomy should remove any discomfort related to infection within the tooth. In the follow up the temporary paste is removed. The canals are filled with an inert material and the tooth should be given a protective crown to protect the work. The procedure is spread over two or more dental visits.

What affects the price?
  • The dentist selected
  • If a specialized endodontic is required
  • The position on of the tooth
  • The type of crown required (if any)

HappyDental

(01) 525 5323 1 Woodlawn Terrace, Upper Churchtown Road, Dublin, D14 F5W6
Felt relaxed and pain free during bridge treatmentWilliam, Ireland, 06 Oct 15

I didn't go to Happy Dental to have this treatment but I did go to research and observe the whole surroundings and take in whatever form of relaxation I would feel knowing the consultation was free and I could walk out and decide I was not going to have anything done here and that was my choice and that reassured me. The lady dentist and lady receptionist were so vivacious and were dressed in whites which did not show the spills of a previous war. The Happy Dental logo was in orange. It was and is important for me to feel relaxed and I needed to feel this element of reciprocity and it was there immediately. I told them my name was William and wished to be addressed so. How do want me to call you and both said by their christian names. I was beginning to meet friends. I needed friends working on me to the extent the procedures was going to entail. It was invasive when it did happen but I knew I had friends on my side who now were beginning to understand me and I them. The waiting room and surgery rooms and I have used both with a predominant orange colour, the skirting board at the bottom of the walls and a similar broad line of orange just below the ceiling. The easy chair was also orange in colour and the walls were white. The place was so cheery. Can you imagine a dentist's surgery cheery with my fears. When I decided to commence the implantation I was feeling very relaxed with the addition of sedatives. We had gone through the patient's consent form at an earlier stage and the dentist told me what exactly what was going to happen. Some of the points on the consent form were in the form of questions where I would have to explain on the form what my interpretation of the aspects of the procedure were. This was a very simple way of showing my level of understanding of what was going to happen. On our first day of procedure the dentist asked me if I had any questions and if I wanted her to tell me what exactly she was doing as she progressed. I said no please, don't give me a running commentary. Ok she said but if you need me to stop for any reason just raise your hand. I had a script for pain killers, antibiotics and anti inflammatory drugs. I was not in pain during the procedure but the following week I was sore and restricted to liquid food. Looking back, now that the procedure is nearly completed, I was never fearful of what was about to happen. Dr. O’ Connor is such a kind lady, she is full of good humour and there is something mothering about her. Although I has taken some relaxants before hand, towards the latter part of the procedure I was relaxed enough without and medical intervention. On the contrary the following days were memorable because of some swelling, a fair amount of oral pain and discomfort and my diet was reduced to cold fluid meals for the best part of a week. But nothing in the procedure itself deterred me from returning. Advice to other potential patients? Well I did a fair bit of research for about a year before I decided on Happy Dental. One dentist in Galway suggested extracting all my upper teeth, all of which were good. Another suggestion was to bridge the gap supporting it on the tooth each of the bridge. By the time he had correlated the cost it price had doubled at the final consultation. And it was the final consultation. I did some research with a dentist in Drogheda. I think that when I met the right implant dentist, the questions I asked and the manner she answered, quality of the information and the personality of the professional, I knew Dr. O’Connor was a safe bet. I paid Dr. O’Connor 9,800 euro. I had joined the dental plan which gives a number of perks and with a discount. It was the most economical on the market and the amount may seem a lot but remember I had three independent implants + post + crown on the lower jaw. I had a root canal treatment on a molar and a crown on the upper jaw and a bridge of seven crowns seated on four implants and posts. Now I have a full compliant of teeth permanently in position and I will look after these. I recommend Happy Dental to anyone who have a fear of dentists and this says everything.

Excellent value and careAine, Ireland, 12 Apr 15

Had the pleasant experience of being seen by a lovely dentist at this clinic last Friday evening! For a late night slot at 7:30pm. I was very impressed with the thorough and friendly service I received! Very genuine team where I felt I got excellent value and care for the price I paid. I will definitely be going back and recommending them to my friends!!

I would not go anywhere else in futureTony, Ireland, 22 Jan 10

I have had 2 root canal treatments with Dr Jarleth Loftus at the Gate Clinic and I would not go anywhere else in future, despite the price! :-) My previous experiences with 3 other dentists were not good. In fact the most recent treatment with Dr Loftus was to fix up a root canal job that had been botched by another dentist. Thankfully Dr Loftus managed to properly fill all the canals and saved my tooth in the process.

Was hugely impressed with his gentle mannerNicola, galway, 13 Jan 12

As I have a terrible fear of dentists I was extremely nervous going to this appointment and had only picked the clinic as the reviews had been so positive. Had an initial consultation with Dr. Woods re. a root canal procedure. Was hugely impressed with his gentle manner, explanation of the procedure and his patience in answering all of my questions. Wish that I had found this clinic years ago !

Root canals €450  -  €650
When a deep cavity, decay or crack destroys the protective layers of enamel and dentine on your tooth, the hollow space within your tooth which contains the nerve tissue, is exposed to the bacteria in your mouth. This can result in inflammation, infection and death of the nerve tissue (pulp). During a root canal procedure a hole will be made in the top or back of your tooth to access the nerve tissue. X-rays and electronic instruments are used to determine the length of the canals. After the canals have been measured, your dentist will use specially designed nickel titanium instruments to clean out the diseased pulp. When the pulp has been removed, the canal is cleaned with an antiseptic solution, which helps to treat the source of the infection. Once the canals have been thoroughly cleaned and the dentist has made sure that the infection has been removed, the roots are sealed using the most up to date methods. A temporary filling is then placed to cover the new root filling. The crown of the tooth should then be restored with a permanent filling or crown as soon as possible.

Cheaper than other quotes i receivedcaroline, Ireland, 13 Mar 10

I was really happy with the treatment that I received from David. I was told my brace would be on for 18 months and the treatment only took 12 months. Anyone considering having braces should go for a consult. I think they are half price at the mo aswell. Plus the cost was alot cheaper than other quotes i received.

Was a very good experienceSharon, US, 04 Aug 14

Went for a check up and cleaning and was really happy with the level of care and service I received here. The practice is modern and friendly and warm. The waiting room is warm and comfortable. For anyone with children there were plenty of toys and distractions. Everyone was friendly. The place was easy to find & parking was no bother. The dentist was calm and assuring in her manner. She put me at ease and I relaxed straight away. I'm usually fairly nervous at the dentist so this was a big plus for me. The dentist explained everything she did and gave me a chance to ask questions about my teeth brushing habits. The prices are reasonable and fair and overall this was a very good experience. Value for money and I have no trouble highly recommending this dentist to anyone.
