Endodontic (Root Canal) Treatment

Root canal therapy in East Village, East London.

Root canal treatment, also known as endodontics, is a dental procedure designed to treat infection or irreversible inflammation of the nerve of a tooth. This may be caused by decay, a fracture, an existing deep filling or severe gum disease.

If the nerve tissue becomes infected by bacteria it will begin to die, which could result in the loss of the tooth. There is also the risk that the infection could spread leading to a painful dental abscess (a pus-filled swelling). The infection could then spread to your gums or the tissue and bones that support your teeth. Root canal treatment is designed to save the tooth and prevent the spread of infection.

The infected tissue is removed from the tooth and the root canal is then cleaned of all bacteria. After the bacteria have been removed, the root canals are then filled using a rubber filling material, before being sealed. Root canal treatment is commonly perceived as being a painful procedure. In fact, in the hands of a properly trained dentist, root canal treatment is relatively painless, and it should be no more unpleasant than having a filling done.

Your dentist will explain the procedure to you and will also discuss with you how many visits the treatment is likely to take as well as any treatment may be required on completion of the root canal treatment.

Very pleased with this practice

“I was sent to this dental practice by 111 as I was having a swelling and infection and couldn’t get to my own dentist on that day. I was very pleased with the whole place and the way staff were dealing with my problem. The practice is new with very clean and new equipment and the people working there are very kind. Since that day I signed up with this practice and have already had a few treatments done. I am an anxious patient but they are very gentle and understanding. They explain everything and are patient. Very happy with this dental surgery and highly recommend it!”

Clean, modern, friendly and calming

“I had tried to have a tooth removed from another dentist but it was too painful and the dentist there seemed annoyed with me. So, it was a complete pleasure and surprise to be treated so well at this practice by the dentist. I was put at ease, it didn’t feel rushed and the dentist took great care to avoid any pain or distress. The tooth was safely removed. I will definitely go back. Highly recommended.”
