Root canal treatment
Root canal treatment is required when the ‘pulp’ inside a tooth becomes infected due to injury or decay. The infection can cause damage to the nerve in the root canal and if left to develop, the nerve can die and become extremely painful.
Treatment involves the root canal being cleaned out, disinfected and sealed to prevent any bacteria re-entering in the future. This procedure is generally carried out under local anaesthetic.
Please note: You are strongly recommended to book an appointment with Dr Mulgund should you ever damage one of your teeth. In most cases, if infection is identified early enough, there may be no need for root canal treatment.
While it is your dentist’s job to ensure that your teeth are healthy, a hygienist will be able to deep clean them for you which ultimately means you should have them for longer. A scale and polish is a routine, painless procedure that you are recommended to have to remove any plaque build-up and reduce your chances of gum disease.
As well as providing scale and polish treatments, a hygienist is also able to advise you about how to care for your teeth properly in-between visits to the dentist. They will also inform you about the foods and drinks you should be avoiding and answer any questions you have regarding your tooth and gum care.

Often referred to as ‘false teeth,’ dentures are a popular choice for replacing missing teeth, especially amongst those who have lost teeth due to ageing. However, it’s not just the elderly that can benefit from dentures, but almost anyone.
Dentures can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. Complete dentures provide a solution for those who have lost the majority (or all) of their teeth, whereas partial dentures are designed for those who simply have a gap in their smile.
Today, dentures come in a number of shapes, sizes, colours and materials which means there is a solution for just about everyone. At Densmile Dental Care we are proud to offer a number of different types of denture, including the popular flexi-denture, and chrome cobalt options.
