Root Canal Treatment

Prices from £695

When most people think of tooth infections, they picture a painful abscess at the gumline. However, an infection that penetrates deep into the tooth’s root can cause all sorts of unpleasant symptoms. The root canal is the innermost part of the tooth, containing nerves and blood vessels. If this area becomes infected, it can lead to pain, inflammation, and even fever.

In severe cases, the infection can spread to other parts of the body, leading to  complications. Root canal infections are usually treated with antibiotics and pain relievers. In some cases, the tooth may need to be extracted. However, with prompt treatment, most patients make a full recovery.

At our practice, we understand that root canal treatment can be a daunting prospect for patients. That’s why we’ve assembled a team of leading clinicians to bring our patients gentle yet effective root canal treatment. Our clinicians are experts in the field and have years of experience performing this type of procedure.

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is one of the most common dental procedures, and it is often performed to save a tooth that has been infected or damaged. The goal of root canal treatment is to remove the infected tissue from inside the tooth and to clean the surrounding area. Our experienced team has extensive training in performing root canal therapy, and we are committed to providing our patients with the highest level of care. In addition to removing the infected tissue, we also gently clean the surrounding area to ensure that all of the bacteria have been removed. Root canal therapy can be an effective way to save a tooth, and it can also help to prevent further damage to the surrounding teeth.

If your tooth is damaged, bacteria can get inside it. This causes irritation, pain and swelling. If the pulp inside the tooth becomes infected, this can spread into the pulp inside the root canal.

The aim of root canal treatment is to prevent your tooth from being taken out by removing the damaged pulp and treating the infection.

You may need root canal treatment for a number of reasons, including:

  • Severe tooth decay

  • Repeated dental treatment on the tooth

  • A cracked tooth

  • A broken crown

  • Cracked or loose fillings

  • Gum disease

  • An injury, such as a blow to your mouth

If the infection isn’t treated, it can spread further and cause an abscess, which is a collection of pus. This can be painful, tender and can cause swelling around your tooth and jaw.

Sometimes your tooth may look darker in colour than your other teeth, which means that the nerve inside your tooth is dead or dying.
