Root canal treatment is needed when the soft tissue under the root of the tooth becomes inflamed or infected causing high sensitivity and pain when eating and drinking or with air making contact with the affected tooth. This soft tissue called the “pulp” contains blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue and helps to grow the root of your tooth during tooth development stage and is no longer needed once the tooth is fully developed. The inflammation or infection can have a variety of causes such as deep decay, faulty crowns, a crack/ chip in the tooth or in some cases due to possible trauma to a tooth causing pulp damage even if no visible damage can be seen on the tooth.. Non treatment of this inflammation or infection can cause abscess and result in the eventual extraction requirement of the tooth whereas a tooth canal treated tooth can often last as long as all other natural teeth.
Contrary to the belief that “Root canal treatments are painful and that it would be easier to have the tooth removed” Root canal treatment actually relieves the existing pain by treating the source whilst saving the natural tooth which can be used for a life time.
Tourmedical was recommended to me by a friend of my Wife’s. In May of this year myself, my wife and sister in law came out and started our treatment. Initally I was only interested in having functionality of all my teeth, so my molar teeth were worked on, bridge work done to close my gaps and got all the mercury out of my body. But of course, then when I saw and felt my lovely back teeth, wanted the Cosmetic side too. We came back again this week, my wife for her check up and all 100% and me for my smile. It was easy this week, as all to the front of my mouth. The dentist and staff were all so friendly and smiling. The Clinic is the cleanest dental clinic, I have ever walked into and the care and attention to detail is amazing. I now have a full set of teeth, like I had when I was young and a smile, I never thought id own again.
I would highly recommend the clinic to anyone thinking of travelling abroad.
