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.
My search for a professional and skilled dentist is finally over. After 5 years in London I have finally found one I can trust. Impeccable work and very personable and friendly. Can’t recommend enough!!!
The people working there are most kind and caring people, Stephanie and Maggie are very lovely ladies, I have done my bonding by Mr Mihir Patel, he is the best, he did everything to make my teeth look fabulous, I'm glad I choose to do my bonding by this dentist.
I joined in 2019 for a gum inflammation issue. I was introduced to Tim, Jessica and Terri, and can say I have received the best care and attention. The staff are brilliant and make you feel welcome and each procedure has gone smooth. I have even moved cities and have not changed practice at all. Highly recommend and worth every penny.
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.
