Tooth Structure

A tooth is made up of two parts. The crown is the part of the tooth that's visible in the mouth. The root extends into the bone of the jaw, anchoring the tooth in position.

Teeth also consist of:

  • enamel – the hard outer coating
  • dentine – a softer material that supports the enamel and forms most of the tooth 
  • cementum – a hard material that coats the root's surface
  • dental pulp – the soft tissue at the centre of the tooth

The root canal system contains the dental pulp and extends from the crown of the tooth to the end of the root. A single tooth can have more than one root canal.

Infection

The pulp is made up of soft tissue that includes nerves and blood vessels. The pulp will begin to die if it's infected by bacteria. Bacteria can then multiply and spread.

The bacteria and the substances they release will eventually pass out of the end of the root canal through the small hole where the blood vessels and nerves enter.

This process will continue because there's nothing to stop more bacteria passing down the root canal, which causes the tissues around the end of the tooth to become red and swollen. This can make your tooth painful and, in extreme cases, your face may become swollen (known as a dental abscess).

Read more about when root canal treatment should be carried out.

Root Canal Treatments

To treat the infection in the root canal, the bacteria need to be removed.

This can be done by either removing the tooth (extraction) or attempting to save it by removing the bacteria from the root canal system (root canal treatment).

After the bacteria have been removed, the root canal will be filled and the tooth sealed with a filling or crown. In most cases, the inflamed tissue at the end of the tooth will heal naturally.

Before having root canal treatment, you will usually be given a local anaesthetic. This means the procedure shouldn't be painful, and should be no more unpleasant than having a filling.

Root canal treatment is usually successful. In about 9 out of 10 cases, a tooth can survive for up to 10 years after root canal treatment.

Read more about how root canal treatment is performed.

Aftercare treatment

It's important to look after your teeth when recovering from root canal treatment.

Avoid biting on hard foods until all of your treatment is complete.

In most cases, it's possible to prevent the need for further root canal treatment by:

  • Maintaining good oral hygiene 
  • Avoid too much sugary food
  • Quit smoking (if you smoke)

"My experience with Rock dates back to 6th April 2010. Since that time I have very much appreciated improved dental health due in my humble opinion to the regular (3/6 month) treatments by my dentist and very professional hygienist".

"Recently, I have had a new upper denture fitted as it was giving me trouble beforehand. In the event, when the new denture was fitted , I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly and without endless modifications, that it had become comfortable. That experience to me was confirmation that my overall dental health was in safe hands. Thanks very much"

"I have total confidence in my dentist at Rock Dental. He explains every aspect of my treatments diligently and the reasons why it is either necessary or advised. Good advice led me to make informed decisions about the care of my implants". 

Please tell us about your experience with us...

"Having had bad dental experiences since a child, I was nervous about every visiting a dentist again. Having seen an advert 'Nervous Patients Welcome' I plucked up the courage and called. Once I managed to get myself to the surgery Dr Anoup and his team worked hard to provide 1-2-1 comfort and help me to relax. It took a number of visits before I felt at ease as I was embarrassed by the look and condition of my teeth but now I no longer dread my dental visit. After intrusive work with implants I smile with confidents as much as possible. So glad I visited Rock".
