Root Canal Treatment (also known as Endodontics) is required when the core of a tooth becomes infected. This can be as a result of dental decay, gum disease or an injury. Painful abscesses or loss of the tooth can occur if the infection is left untreated.
Normally, the patient won’t experience any pain or have many major symptoms in the earlier stages of infection, of which the symptoms are a discoloured tooth or an abscess beginning to form. It is important to undergo endodontic treatment if the tooth is to be saved.
Thanks to advances in dental technologies, Root Canal Treatment is a painless and simple procedure to deliver. The infected tissues are removed and replaced with a filling material that blocks the canals, preventing further infections.
During an initial appointment, our dentist will work with the patient to draw up a bespoke treatment plan.
With every patient’s case being different, it’s not possible to provide an accurate indication of costs without a prior consultation. However, for an up to date list of our from prices, please head to our treatment fees page.
