As a Surrey practice is keen to emphasise, root canal treatment no longer hold the ‘evil’ stigma that has been built up around it in Worcester Park, though even now, it’s not pretty reading. It is very likely your own fault that you have to go through it anyway, because having this done is caused by tooth decay, borne out of lazy oral hygiene. The problem is that the pulp and roots within the tooth have become infected and in order to save the tooth, the rotten bits have to be removed. Now conventionally, the pulp and root would be drilled out, however, an awkward root would have to be removed by cutting the gum and drilling through the side of the tooth…nasty. Once done, the tooth could be filled and capped with a crown. Fortunately, such an act of atrocity has been rendered almost painless do to the introduction of the laser to dentistry. Being used in many areas, it is perfect for removing roots and pulp in seconds, hence, little discomfort.
