What is root canal treatment?

A root canal treatment is a type of endodontic therapy recommended to treat infected or damaged tooth pulp and nerves. This can occur when decay or an injury reaches deep into the tooth, past the strong outer enamel layer.

Is a root canal painful?

A root canal is a common procedure that is typically performed under local anaesthetic so you should not experience any discomfort.

Following the treatment, the infected tooth and the surrounding soft tissues may feel sensitive and your jaw may be a little sore, but any discomfort quickly subsides.

How much does a root canal treatment cost?

The cost of root canal treatment varies due the location of the tooth and the severity of the case. On average it costs £823.

Root canal step-by-step

Our entire team work hard to ensure your comfort each time you visit our practice. If you are experiencing any tooth sensitivity, we welcome you to call us on 01784 454 899. We are committed to restoring your smile.

  • Tooth is numbed using a local anaesthetic.

  • A protective shield is placed over the patient’s mouth to keep the infected tooth free from saliva.

  • A small hole is drilled into the crown of the tooth.

  • The infection is removed using small files and the canals are shaped to allow space for the fillings.

  • Remaining tooth debris or bacteria are washed away with a cleaning solution.

  • The canals are filled with gutta-percha, a rubber-like biocompatible material.

  • The tooth is filled, or a temporary crown is placed until you can be fitted with a permanent crown.

Who performs a root canal procedure?

The procedure can be performed by a general dentist.

Complex cases are typically referred to an endodontist, a dentist who specialises in treating the inside of teeth.
