I want to save my teeth » Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment (also called Endodontics) is needed when the pulp inside your tooth becomes infected through tooth decay or damaged by an injury to your mouth. This infection may spread through the root canal system, which could eventually lead to an abscess, causing a great deal of discomfort. If root canal treatment is not carried out, the tooth may need to be taken out.
Our dentists can perform root canal treatment to stop the infection from spreading and will preserve as much of your tooth as possible. Using specific techniques and advanced equipment, you will receive a local anaesthetic and the treatment overall should feel no different to having an ordinary filling placed. The aim of the treatment is to remove all infection from the root canal. The root is then cleaned and filled to prevent any further infection. A temporary filling is put in and the tooth is left to settle. The tooth is checked at a later visit and when all the infection has cleared, the tooth is permanently filled. Root canal treatment is a skilled and time-consuming procedure and most courses of treatment will involve two or more visits.
To keep your mouth in tip top shape we recommend you come in for regular hygiene appointments and dental check-ups.

I didn't want to change my identity, just wanted to look less tired and I feel the wrinkle reduction injections helped me to do this.
- Joesephine Smile Essential
I wanted something enhanced my natural beauty and natural to me means that it is a better version of me, but still is me. I did this for me. It only matters that I see the difference.

Thank you for making me feel so relaxed when I came to see you for my fillings. Like many people the dentist is not my favourite place to visit but your calm manner put me totally at ease. I am very pleased with my new white fillings and look forward to my next appointment.
