At Lifestyle Dental, we have extensive knowledge and experience in root canal treatment.

Root canal treatment, also known as endodontics, is need when the blood or nerve supply of the tooth, known as the pulp, is infected through decay or injury. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed.

Why would I need root canal treatment?
The tooth’s nerves lie within the root canal and when this gets infected, it can be extremely painful. Without root canal treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected and abscesses may form. Swelling that occurs can spread to other areas of the face, neck or head.

How does a tooth’s nerve get damaged?
A tooth’s nerve and pulp can become irritated, inflamed and infected due to deep decay, repeated dental procedures on one tooth, large fillings, a crack or chip in the tooth or trauma to the face.

What are the symptoms that I should look out for?

  • Pain when eating or drinking hot or cold food and drink
  • Pain when biting or chewing
  • A loose tooth
  • Pain when biting or chewing returning
  • Swelling of the gum near the affected tooth
  • Pus oozing from the affected tooth
  • Facial swelling
  • The tooth becoming a darker colour

If you notice yourself suffering from any of these symptoms or suffering from any other pain, it is important to book an appointment to see a dentist.

Dr. Nadim Majid qualified from Liverpool Dental school in 2001 and since then has worked in Lancashire for a number of years. He decided to undertake a career in dentistry as he found it was a good mix of science and art and also gave him the ability to help people and make a difference for them.

This really hit home when he worked in a nursing home for a short time and actually saw the impact upon the health and well being of patients whom had lost their teeth the impact was significant on the general health and well being and this is something Dr. Majid wanted to make sure he helped others avoid.

Dr. Majid is trained in hypnosis, sedation for nervous people, dental implants as well as braces. He lives in Lancashire with his two children (twins) and his wife who is a teacher. Dr. Majid has always and will continue to be focused on producing top quality services that his patients have come to expect and appreciate.
