Does root canal treatment hurt?

We aim to make the procedure as stress and pain-free as possible, as we carry out the treatment under local anaesthetic to carefully numb the treatment area before we proceed. If you are a nervous patient and would prefer to have sedation with the treatment, please inform your dentist during your FREE consultation.

What happens during root canal treatment?

It may be comforting to know that our team are highly skilled in performing root canal treatment and aim to preserve as much of the tooth as possible. During the procedure, we will carefully remove all remnants of the bacteria from the tooth and roots. The root is then cleaned and filled to prevent further infection. We will then restore your tooth to its full shape, strength and function sing wither a permanent filling or crown.

How long does root canal take?

Normally, the procedure will take between 1-2 visits, but the length of time it takes to treat your tooth will depend on how complex/severe your case is. We will be able to give you a more accurate idea of treatment time once we have seen you for a FREE consultation.
