Root canal treatment in Amsterdam

An acute root canal infection is recognisable immediately. It is an intense and severe pain. However, there can often be problems brewing before you notice them. Sometimes your root canal is infected but worse yet, the nerve is already dead. That is particularly nasty, because it means you are not immediately aware of the problem. While you remain unaware of it, the infection bores a way through the tooth to the bone. In this case, a root canal treatment will be necessary.

How a root canal treatment works

Before we start a root canal treatment, we first make an x-ray of your jaw. So we can be sure that the treatment is definitely needed, and are able to locate the infection. Thereafter you get a local anaesthetic. Next we will open the top of your tooth, or molar, this makes it easy to remove the dental tissue that is putting pressure on the nerve. We will then clean the tooth, and fill the resulting space up. If your tooth or molar is in bad shape we will strengthen it with a crown.

How long will the whole treatment take? That depends on the number of infected root canals. Usually the treatment takes between 1 hour and 1.5 hours.

Pain management after a root canal treatment

Don’t worry. Of course we won’t let you go home in pain. We are after all trying to free you from the pain. After the treatment we will give you a good painkiller to take home, that will keep any residual pain in check.

Marije Petersen

Truly a fantastic practice. Been a patient here for years. Normally I always finish the check-ups very quickly, but today during lunch at work I bit a tooth in half. Called Tandartsjordaan, and was able to go straight after work tonight. Treatment was painless and quick. They managed to save my tooth, which had really broken down. Thank you Tandartsjordaan!

Jose Bakker

I was able to go to work in the short term. My front tooth has been repaired very professionally. The dentist and assistant were very involved and the result is fantastic. Thanks again.

Nico Reen

Great dentist. It's not only spring in the eyes of the dental assistant.

Frank Schippers

Top dental practice. Recommended! I am very satisfied! Great team, from the receptionists to the dental hygienists, the assistants and the highly skilled dentists with excellent service with the patient at the center. They think along with you, put you at ease, are also great with children and it is a practice where everything is under one roof. Fast and painless. I am very happy that I came here 4 years ago. I dare to smile again and many of my acquaintances and friends have also enjoyed going to this dental practice for years. Tandartspraktijk Jordaan also has super service, even on Sundays and evenings until 10 pm! to be open! They are exactly the average in North Holland in terms of prices. (Have requested multiple quotes). Not cheap, but logical! Most prices are determined by the government, so no discussion. If you are going for quality, durability and service, then you have come to the right place at Tandarts Jordaan.

Ed Veldem

Fortunately, after an accident, I was immediately able to visit my own dentist on a Sunday. I have never had such a fine dentist before and can recommend everyone to go here. They are incredibly knowledgeable, but also sweet, especially if you are afraid of the dentist like me. They take their time and reassure you. So hereby a big Thank you!

Carlijn Pranger

An extremely professional dental practice, unlike anything I have encountered before in Amsterdam and The Hague. Very knowledgeable dentists, who clearly explain exactly what they perform during a treatment and they know how to put patients at ease.

Rik Hoenselaar

Wat een fantastische praktijk! Het was noodzakelijk drie kronen te plaatsen, boven middenvoor. Echter, als de bestaande kroon als uitgangspunt gebruikt zou worden, zou het rijtje niet het mooist mogelijke resultaat geven. De oude kroon is daarom door tandarts Bakker kosteloos vervangen. Dit stijgt mi ver uit boven klantvriendelijkheid of betrokkenheid en heeft ook te maken met passie voor het vak. De behandeling was geruststellend, duidelijk, plezierig en professioneel. De vier kronen werden voor het afbakken door de tandtechnicus aangepast aan mijn wensen, weer zonder extra kosten. Het resultaat is een plaatje. Allen die hieraan bijdroegen: dank jullie wel!
