What is a root canal?

Root canal treatment (Endodontics) is a fantastic procedure which can help you when you need it most. We perform endodontics when the pulp inside your tooth becomes infected through tooth decay or damage as a result of trauma.

This infection could spread through the root canal system, which could eventually lead to an abscess, causing a great deal of discomfort. If root canal treatment is not carried out, the tooth may need to be taken out.

Our highly experienced team is skilled in performing root canal treatment to stop the infection from spreading. We will preserve as much of your tooth as possible. We use specific techniques and advanced equipment, and you will receive a local anesthetic.

The treatment

Please trust us to ensure that the treatment overall will feel no different to having an ordinary filling placed.

The aim of the treatment is to remove all infection from the root canal. The root is then cleaned and filled to prevent any further infection. A temporary filling is put in and the tooth is left to settle. The tooth is checked at a later visit and when all the infection has cleared, the tooth is permanently filled. Root canal treatment is a skilled and time-consuming procedure and most courses of treatment will involve two or more visits.

Working with our team with regular check-ups and great dental hygiene will limit the likelihood of your having to have a root canal.

“90% of dental diseases are preventable and the main way that we prevent them is with good oral hygiene. Seeing a dental hygienist allows patients to create a custom dental hygiene routine with a dental professional to ensure they are keeping their risk of dental disease low. Regular hygiene appointments also ensures any early signs of gum disease are identified.” Emma, one of our Hygiene Team.

Preventative dentistry plays a vital role in protecting your oral health. During lockdown, our oral health routine has sometimes slipped down our priority list so we are pleased to inform you that we are now able to offer regular hygiene appointments again at a selection of practices.

Ravinder was very unhappy with her smile and had lost her confidence. She wanted something that was quick and unnoticeable which meant Invisalign was right for her.
