Our approach

Our minimally invasive approach means that our team will always try to restore and save your natural teeth wherever possible.

If a tooth is infected but otherwise strong and healthy, one of the treatment options we offer is root canal treatment.

Does root canal treatment hurt?

We completely understand that the phrase ‘root canal treatment’ can cause many people to feel very worried and anxious that they have to undergo a painful, lengthy procedure, but this is not the case.

Root canal treatment is, in fact, very comfortable and the result will mean you no longer feel any pain from the infected tooth.

Many patients who require root canal treatment report symptoms of toothache, swelling, tenderness and sensitivity to hot and cold. The treatment quickly brings welcome relief to these discomfort and pain.

Root canal treatment is very common, and our dentists are experts at administering gentle pain relief, as well as carrying out the treatment smoothly and efficiently. Our dentists carry out root canal treatment under a dental microscope for improved quality.

If you are feeling worried or anxious, our dentists are able to put your mind at ease during your appointment before you make your decision about going ahead with the treatment or not. We can also offer safe sedation to make you feel more relaxed and comfortable.

Really happy with the service I received. Shannon is so warm and friendly at reception and put me at my ease, and the treatment I got from Manpreet was painless and very clearly explained. A very very positive experience.


What does root canal treatment involve?

The root canal treatment itself involves opening the top of the infected tooth and removing the soft, infected tissue from inside.

The canals of the tooth are then thoroughly cleaned and filled with a safe, inert dental gum. A crown or composite restoration is then used to seal the top of the tooth, so after a day or so, your mouth will look and feel normal again.

In some cases, where a root canal treatment is particularly complex, you may need more than one appointment. If this is the case, the tooth is filled with a medicated material to reduce the risk of further infection, with a temporary filling placed over the top so you can eat, drink and smile normally until the next step of your treatment.

We can also offer re-root canal treatments. A re-treatment may be needed in cases where a root canal treatment has failed, which can happen years after the first root canal treatment.

Once treatment is complete, we would recommend you attend regular hygiene therapy appointments with our dental hygienist. Here, you can get a thorough deep clean of the mouth, preventing further infections, and learn the best ways to take care of your teeth at home.
