Following the government’s announcement, we would like to reassure all of our patients that we will remain open and will continue to practice safely with the highest level of disinfection control through this second lockdown, and in line with all clinical and government guidelines. Should advice change from our governing bodies, we will keep you informed.

How you can help keep our Dental Practice safe for all:

 We look forward to seeing you soon!

Root Canal Therapy

An advanced procedure

Root Canal therapy can be considered as an advanced procedure to save an infected tooth, which otherwise may have had to be extracted.

Why Root Canal Therapy?

Root Canal Therapy is normally required when a tooth has died, usually as a result of a large amount of previous decay or trauma.

Typical symptoms

The typical symptoms of a dying tooth are pain and swelling, which unless treated will worsen and lead to an abscess.

Intial Procedure?

The tooth is prepared to the ideal shape for the crown. This will involve removing most of the outer surface, and leaving a strong inner 'core'. The amount of the tooth removed will be the same as the thickness of the crown to be fitted. Once the tooth is shaped, an impression is taken of the prepared tooth, one of the opposite jaw and possibly another to mark the way you bite together.

Intial Procedure?

Once the inside of the tooth is infection-free and sealed, a permanent restoration can be placed on top of the tooth.
