WHAT IS ROOT CANAL TREATMENT?

The root canal contains nerves and blood vessels, which extend to the bottom of the tooth’s root.

When a tooth is damaged, bacteria can cause an infection and damage the root canal. For some patients, the tooth will turn a darker colour, which could mean the nerve in the tooth is dying.

Root canal treatment tackles the infection and can often save a tooth that would otherwise have to be extracted.

With root canal treatment from White & Co. you can:

  • Enjoy all the benefits of premium root canal treatment that tackles infection and can usually save your tooth
  • Achieve this outcome with a treatment that is no more uncomfortable than having a filling
  • Return to living a pain-free life

How does it work?

Your root canal treatment

Step 1

Preparation

We may take x-rays of the tooth to analyse the extent of the damage and prepare for treatment.

Step 2

Remove infection

Your dentist will give you a local anaesthetic, remove infected areas and drain any dental abscesses.

Step 3

Fill and seal

We will place a temporary filling into the cleaned area and invite you back for a further appointment.

Step 4

Second visit

Your dentist will fill the tooth permanently and seal it to prevent reinfection. In some cases we will fit a crown.

Patient Stories

GENERAL DENTISTRY

“I have OCD. I struggled for many years to go to the dentist (10+ years) as I have dentist phobia.

"I followed my wife on her visit to the dentist and was so warmly welcomed by Piotr and the other staff members that, after chatting with them about my concerns and them being so understanding, I decided to give it a try. Almost 5 months of my teeth are saved.” Michael Sparrow. Fillings, whitening and gum disease treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

We perform this treatment with a local anaesthetic so you should not feel any pain. The treatment should be no more painful than having a filling.

Arrow
Answer icon

You will feel some discomfort in the days after your treatment. We can prescribe paracetamol or ibuprofen.

Question iconWill my tooth be weakened?

Arrow
Answer icon

Because we are removing the inner section of the tooth, it will be structurally weaker than your other teeth. In some cases, the dentist will reinforce the tooth with a dental crown.

Question iconHow long will the treatment last?

Your treated tooth should survive for many years with a strong oral health routine and regular visits to the dentist.
