Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment aims to remove all infection and debris from the infected tooth. It is a skilled and time-consuming procedure that can requires 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.

    Root canal treatment consists of the following stages:

    Step 1

    Removing the remains of the infected pulp and, if an abscess is present, allowing it to drain.

    Step 2

    Cleaning and shaping of the root canals ready for filling.

    Step 3

    Checking the tooth to ensure that the infection is cleared and if so, filling the canals permanently.

    Step 4

    Restoring the tooth with a permanent restoration.
