First the damaged or infected nerve and structure is removed then we cleanse and shape the inner canal to prevent reinfection and seal fully.
It is a skilled and time-consuming procedure that can require two or more visits. We have an in-house endodontist specialist who will be able to treat your infected tooth to the highest standards, to ensure your tooth has the best long term prognosis.
Amazing Dental Clinic! I should have found this Clinic years ago. I am seen by the very competent and professional Dentist, Dr Raj Patel. His patient skills would leave Florence Nightingale to shame. Go on try it and you will regret you went anywhere else.
AJ is an excellent dentist. When I met him my teeth were loose or had fallen out. Where other dentists were only giving me the option of standard dental plates or wanting to charge over £15,000 , with over 30 years experience AJ put together a plan of treatment that has given me back my smile and confidence when eating.
The best experience I've had in the last 5 years ! Amazing customer service, the receptionist was really nice, she answer all of my questions, is very clean in the dentist's office. Dr. Chandan Mepani is really professional, he explained nicely to me what is more urgent to fix, he didn't try to take as much money from me.
There are several reasons why you may need root canal treatment including:
You may experience some mil discomfort or tenderness when biting down on the affected tooth. This usually only lasts a couple of days and can be treated with an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory pain reliever like ibuprofen.
Root Canal treatment can have a bad reputation for being painful but actually most people report the procedure is no more painful that having a filling placed. We’ll make sure your tooth is numbed so you won’t feel any pain during the procedure.
Firstly, our dentist will numb the area to ensure the procedure is as pain free as possible. Once numbed, a small opening is made in the top (crown) of the tooth to access the pulp chamber and canal. The infected tissue is then removed before being filled with a biocompatible material and sealed.
