Our very own Dr Gavin Barry, a wonderful Irishman and an all around nice guy, has just recently completed the Ironman Bolton! It took Gavin a meagre 14 and a half hours. He beat the times of other far more seasoned athletes like Mo Farah and Paula Radcliffe, who did not finish within the time allowance of 17 hours. Apparently, they both hate bikes…
If you’ve experienced any of the following:
- serious pain when eating
- mouth swelling
- extreme sensitivity
- tooth darkening
- pimple-like bumps on the gums
Then you should contact your dentist and arrange a check-up as soon as possible. They may then advise you to have a root canal.
If you were recently informed that you need a root canal treatment, also known as endodontic therapy, chances are the minute you left your dentist’s office you felt a bit worried about the procedure. Dr Fernando Vieira and Georgina Lively are endodontic professionals and have completed countless successful root canal procedures. They understand that even the thought of this necessary dental treatment may make you feel nervous. Don’t worry, this reaction is completely normal. Knowing what will happen ahead of time is more than half the battle. By the end of this blog, you will understand that a root canal procedure is nothing to be worried about. More
