Millions of teeth are treated and saved each year with endodontics or root canal treatment.
This procedure is carried out to treat the nerve of a tooth when it has become infected due to decay or injury. This serves to provide pain relief and save teeth which would otherwise have to be extracted. The treatment involves cleaning of the tooth with special files and disinfectants, under a dental microscope. The space inside the root is then filled to prevent further infection. Some teeth may require a crown at the end of the procedure, to provide additional strength and protection.
Treatment is carried out under local anaesthesia, so should be pain free. The duration of the procedure will depend on the complexity of the tooth’s root canal system and individual circumstances. On average, each appointment may last one to two hours, over one to two visits.
We endeavour to provide the best quality of treatment and care, utilizing state-of-the-art equipment and materials. We are dedicated to your comfort and wellbeing during and after your appointment.
Each patient will be assessed on an individual basis and costs will be outlined following diagnosis. Below are designed to indicate costs for endodontics treatments and are subject to change. For more information on fees, please contact us.
