The importance of seeing our dentist in Coppull

Oral health is an essential part of ensuring good overall health and wellbeing. We may not realise it, but issues with our dental health can affect our overall health if not identified early enough. This is why we recommend that alongside your normal oral regime, you book routine appointments with our dentist in Coppull every 12 months to maintain good oral health.

If you are based in Coppull and would like to book a routine dental appointment, why not book an appointment with us at Coppull Dental Centre? At Coppull Dental Centre, we understand how important having good dental health is, which is why we strive to deliver to our patients an incomparable dental experience, using the latest techniques and dental technology.

Having regular dental appointments with our dentist in Coppull comes with a number of benefits. First, through regular appointments, our dentist in Coppull can spot any issues that may be detrimental to your overall dental health if not treated early enough. An example of this is the development of a small cavity, which can be treated using a filling. If you have no noticeable dental issues, having regular appointments will also assist you in maintaining a good oral hygiene regime, and our dentist will provide you with insight on how to maintain a good regime and monitor your oral health.

There are also instances during a routine dental appointment where a more complex dental issue is identified, like a decayed tooth or swelling in the gum. This may be the case if a patient has not had a dental checkup in a while. When you attend a routine dental treatment with us, our dentist will be able to create a bespoke treatment plan to provide a solution and some pain relief should you experience any discomfort.

If you are currently dealing with an infected tooth due to tooth decay or your tooth is damaged as a result of an injury to your mouth, a dental treatment that can treat this issue that we offer at our practice is root canal treatment.

Root canal treatment at Coppull Dental Centre

As a restorative dental treatment, root canal therapy is a complex but effective treatment that aims to replace a tooth that has been damaged due to decay. The procedure is carried out over at least two appointments and is needed when the pulp is infected, which results in symptoms such as a loose tooth or pain when consuming either hot or cold food and drink.

This procedure is carried out under a local anaesthetic, with the first step being the removal of the bacteria from the root canal system. A small hole is drilled into the damaged tooth for the infection and pulp to be thoroughly cleaned out. Following this, the root canal is filled, and a temporary crown is placed to seal the canal. This will allow the inflamed tissue near the tooth to heal. During your next appointment, our dentist will check to see whether your tooth has healed and the infection has cleared before permanently fitting a crown.
