First the damaged or infected nerve and structure is removed then we cleanse and shape the inner canal to prevent reinfection and seal fully.
It is a skilled and time-consuming procedure that can require two or more visits. We have an in-house endodontist specialist who will be able to treat your infected tooth to the highest standards, to ensure your tooth has the best long term prognosis.
I honestly cannot recommend this dental practice enough! It is amazing. It was initially recommended by a friend who raved about it and I've done the exact same thing since my treatment too! My dentist is a miracle worker, he is able to put you at ease and after having a filling and root canal, I can honestly say he was brilliant! I felt no discomfort during or after the treatment and at points (dare I say) it was almost relaxing! If you need the dentist, this is the place to go!
Receptionist very helpful when booking appointment and received a warm welcome upon arrive. I’m a nervous patient; the dentist and dental nurse were really reassuring and efficient. All round good service and would highly recommend.
Excellent professional service, I travel here from Essex and continue to do so. The staff are very friendly and welcoming, making the experience one I actually now look forward to as opposed to previous dentists. The lead hygienist is by far the best I’ve ever had five star all the way and reasonable rates.
There are several reasons why you may need root canal treatment including:
You may experience some mil discomfort or tenderness when biting down on the affected tooth. This usually only lasts a couple of days and can be treated with an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory pain reliever like ibuprofen.
Root Canal treatment can have a bad reputation for being painful but actually most people report the procedure is no more painful that having a filling placed. We’ll make sure your tooth is numbed so you won’t feel any pain during the procedure.
Firstly, our dentist will numb the area to ensure the procedure is as pain free as possible. Once numbed, a small opening is made in the top (crown) of the tooth to access the pulp chamber and canal. The infected tissue is then removed before being filled with a biocompatible material and sealed.
