Root canal (Endodontic) treatment is usually needed if your tooth is infected, painful or fractured.

This treatment can save teeth that might otherwise need to be removed - the aim of root canal treatment is to keep your tooth healthy, and to return it to function.

We use the latest technology to ensure comfortable, efficient, painless, and minimally invasive treatment. Our approach with our technology means that the majority of our endodontic treatments are carried out in a single 60-90 minute appointment, although of course more challenging teeth may require additional time and/or appointments.

Treatment is carried out under an operating microscope so that the finest detail can be visualised and considered - this is considered to be essential for all endodontic treatment, but is particularly invaluable for re-treatment procedures.

We were the first Specialist Endodontic practice in Europe to routinely use Cone Beam CT Scanning (a 3D imaging with a low radiation dose) and 3D printed models to help us manage complex endodontic problems. Having a range of CBCT scanners and a dedicated on-site technical team to help us to optimise your care and maximize success with the early identification of problems is unique in endodontic treatments.

When necessary an inter-disciplinary approach with one or more of our in-house specialists is taken to best manage your unique dental problems.
