Root canal specialist (Endodontist)
Inside the tooth is a nerve (aka pulp). The pulp can become damaged due to tooth decay, trauma, or previous restorative treatments etc. This in turn can lead to pain, swelling and infection of the nerve and surrounding tissues. The aim of the root canal treatment (RCT) is to remove the inflamed or infected tissue from inside the root canals. Once treated, the root canals are sealed with a special material. Afterwards, the tooth is restored with a filling or crown. Local anaesthetic is used, making the procedure pain-free. The RCT allows you to save a tooth that would otherwise have to be extracted and replaced. At Swedish Smile Clinic we have Endodontist (root canal specialist dentist) who is happy to help you.
