Root Canal Treatment

We have an experienced first class friendly team who provide root canal treatment (previously known as endodontic treatment) so that you are able to preserve your natural tooth, where it would otherwise need to be removed. Although we have excellent and well researched ways of replacing teeth, at TwentyOneDental we believe that it’s best to keep your natural teeth if at all possible.

Your teeth are made up of enamel and dentin. Both of these hard layers are designed, in part, to protect the soft tissue inside your tooth called the dental pulp. The pulp is made up of nerves and blood vessels that nourish the tooth.

Root canal treatment can become necessary if the pulp becomes infected or inflamed, or the nerves in the pulp die. This can often result in an abscess developing. The causes of such a situation can be manifold.

The process is usually painless as your tooth is anaesthetised. However, we do provide sedation to those who are either anxious or generally nervous. We also have a post-surgery relaxation suite for patients to recover in.
