What is Root Canal Treatment?

A root canal treatment is the main method for saving a tooth that has an abscess or that may be fractured, infected or decayed. The purpose is to rebuild the tooth and surrounding tissues to a healthy state, relieving both pains and infection. If you have a tooth with an infected nerve, then a root canal is the treatment you need.

Without root canal treatment, the only other alternative is to have the infected tooth removed and replaced with an implant, a fixed bridge or a removable denture. Of course, none of these alternatives is preferable to being able to keep the original tooth.

Root canal treatment is not only the best treatment option for you as a patient, but it is also a cost-effective way to save a tooth with a damaged nerve.

Chrissie Knight
My partner has been seeing Jo and Gill for years as she had a lot of nervousness about dentists but thinks they are great. I'd not been to a dentist in 10 years but she persuaded me, I saw Dr Shah for a filling and was very happy with his professionalism and manner. I now go regularly like a good patient and would recommend them.
William Davies
I have been seeing Jo for approximately 3 years now. She is very calming and trusting as she works and as someone who is a little nervous at the dentist this is extremely comforting. She has been great with my girls (3 and 5), they in fact LOVE going to the dentist. Her magic wand and chair have them mesmerised!
Beckie Lowe

Dale Ashworth-Brown
I had my first consultation today with Dr Shah. He did a very thorough examination and explained his findings and treatment plan clearly with the aid of photographs and x-ray pictures. Given the quality of the service the fees are very reasonable. Highly recommended.

After an accident to my seven year old boy’s adult front tooth, Jo and Jade are the superheroes in his eyes. Thank you Jo and Jade for making his visit relaxing, stress-free and enjoyable. You are simply fabulous!

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I don't have the treatment?

Once the pulp is destroyed, it can’t heal and it is not recommended to leave an infected tooth in the mouth. The alternative is to have the tooth out. Although some people would prefer an extraction, it is usually best to keep as many natural teeth as possible.

Usually, there is no discolouration, but if this does occur there are several treatments available to restore the natural appearance.

Root canal treatment is a skilled and time-consuming procedure. The aim of the treatment is to remove all infection from the root canal. The infected pulp is removed and the root is then cleaned and filled to prevent any further infection. Any abscesses, which may be present, can also be drained at this time.

A root canal is normally carried out under local anaesthetic and is no different to having an ordinary filling.
