When an infection spreads to the internal tissue of the tooth, it can lead to extreme dental pain and may result in extraction if the infection persists. Endodontic treatment, or root canal therapy, is often the last resort to help preserve a natural tooth and avoid surgical removal. It helps to clear away the infection before filling and sealing the structure to restore full function.

Root canal therapy is often the last resort to protect your teeth and keep them functioning correctly. It has a high success rate when there is an early intervention. The procedure starts by removing the infected tissue from the roots of your teeth using special tools. We then fill the canals with a replacement material called gutta-percha. Finally, we seal the tooth and cover it to provide strength and protection. We can use filling material or a new crown if the integrity of the tooth has been compromised.
We recognise that root canal treatment can be scary and you might have some anxiety about the procedure. To help put you at ease, we offer a calm and caring approach to dentistry that will ensure you can relax throughout the treatment. Everything will be explained in detail and we will ensure that your comfort is our top priority so you can feel safe and secure.
