Endodontic treatment

Here at Leyland Implants, we understand there’s nothing like your real teeth, which is why we will aim to preserve them at every opportunity.

We take enormous pride in offering you a high standard of endodontic (root canal) treatment – a branch of dentistry that works to save teeth by treating them from the inside and removing damaged pulp.

The benefits of endodontic treatment

The chances are that if your tooth has become infected right at its very core, you will be in pain. Contact us immediately so that we can help. The danger of not doing so could lead to the infection travelling down the root canal and forming an abscess, which can be extremely painful.

Wherever possible we will always try and save a tooth rather than extract it – even when the heart of the tooth has become infected. Endodontics or root canal treatment prevents the tooth from having to be taken out and it is a treatment that Dr David Quinn is highly skilled at performing. David has a reputation for high success rates and a gentle approach, and is often referred to by other dentists.

Our top tips for looking after your dental implants

Caring for your investment is important to achieve the best long-lasting results and to ensure your new teeth always look their best.

“At Leyland Implants, we advise our patients to brush their teeth as normal as soon as possible with a soft-bristled brush after implant placement, but to avoid the surgery area for the first week. Brushing will prevent infection and stimulate tissue healing.”

“On a daily basis, it’s important to use special brushes designed to reach the area where your implants meet your gums, as well as interdental brushes and floss to clean between your teeth and your new implant tooth, bridge or denture.”

“We highly encourage our patients to attend regular annual hygiene appointments, so our team of highly trained therapists can give your teeth some extra care and a thorough professional clean.”
