Root Canal Treatment

Getting to the centre of the issue

Root canal treatment (endodontics) is a dental procedure to treat bacterial infections that occur in the centre of your tooth (known as the root canal). These infections can result from tooth decay, leaky fillings, or tooth damage.

When you need root canal treatment

When the dental pulp at the centre of your tooth becomes infected, it may become inflamed. This can result in a loose tooth and make it painful to bite, chew or eat/drink anything hot or cold.

When the pulp dies, these symptoms will go away, but the infection will have spread through your root canal system. This will cause the pain to come back later, along with:

  • Swelling in the gum and cheek
  • The tooth becoming darker in colour
  • Pus oozing from the tooth

You should never leave an infected tooth, as this can make it much worse. If you suffer from toothache, you must visit a dentist.

If X-rays show that your dental pulp is suffering from infection, you will need root canal treatment.

How root canal treatment is done

This treatment involves removing the bacteria from the root canal, and then filling the root canal and sealing the tooth. This may require multiple sessions, with temporary fillings and antibiotics in between to prevent further infection.

After we have removed the bacteria and any temporary fillings, we seal the tooth with a proper root canal filling and possibly a crown.
We carry out the entire treatment under local anaesthetic, making it completely painless.

Once we have finished the treatment, your tooth should survive for a long time. You shouldn’t require any follow-up treatment, but you should try to keep your teeth clean and healthy going forward. If the infection returns, we may repeat the treatment.

This is an NHS Band 2 dental treatment. Our private price for this service starts at £350.

Amazing staff and so caring :) reception are wonderful, nursing team brilliant and dentist… Roopa you are a star 🌟 I am so anxious when attending the dentist and the thought of having root canal without sedation was overwhelming. Roopa was very reassuring, calm and understanding with me and she did everything at my pace. I tried a new coping strategy of listening to music on my headphones which helped keep me distracted. Roopa and her team were very thoughtful and gentle, keeping me calm throughout. Thankyou so much to a great team! :) x
