Root canal treatment

Root canal treatment is a skilled and time consuming procedure carried out in one or two visits. The aim of the procedure is to remove all the infection from the root canal. Root canal refers to the space at the core of the tooth that holds the nerves and blood vessels that supply the tooth.

 

If the tooth becomes infected with decay or injury, the infection may spread to the root end causing an abscess which is a localized collection of puss that forms around the tissue surrounding the root. The dentist removes the infected pulp with instruments, cleans shapes and fills the canals. After a tooth has had a root canal, it can become dry and brittle and easy to break. A crown (cap) is usually recommended to restore the tooth properly.

White fillings

White fillings are tooth coloured fillings that can be used to restore decayed, chipped or broken teeth or to close small gaps to improve appearance and boost self confidence. Here at Widnes Dental Practice our skilful dentists can safely replace unsightly silver fillings that may show when you laugh or smile with white coloured fillings.

Extractions (Oral Surgery)

Although permanent teeth are meant to last a lifetime, there are a number of reasons for why tooth extractions are needed. Extraction is a simple procedure to remove the infected tooth.

Jaw problems

Jaw joint problems describe the diseases and conditions that may cause pain signs and symptoms of jaw conditions vary depending on the specific type of jaw of jaw disease disorder or condition. Tooth grinding and clenching can cause many problems such as broken teeth, jaw pain, headaches, toothache and muscle pain. When teeth are ground from side to side, particularly during sleep, this can wear down the front teeth and the molar cusps can be chipped and damaged. Clenching also tenses the jaw muscles, which are some of the most powerful muscles in the human body. This repeated tension can cause severe pain and headaches.

 

We are able to assess the jaw muscles and record how your teeth meet, to see if you would benefit from an occlusal splint. An occlusal splint is usually worn only at night. It is used to protect the teeth and prevent muscle tension, reducing or eliminating the source of pain completely.
