Root Canal Therapy

Save your teeth from getting extracted

Root Canal treatment Liverpool

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.

This dental practice is outstanding. I am informed and involved in every aspect of my dental care. My dentist, is professional and understanding. I have complete faith in them and the rest of the staff. The surgery is modern and spotlessly clean and welcoming. A pleasure to go to the dentist actually!

This dentisit is fantastic with children and adults alike. As soon as you enter the staff are lovely and friendly the NHS dentist took their time with my son who is terrified of the dentist not any more, the dentist explained everything slowly and said to my son it didn’t matter how long it took there was no rush…they made my son feel relaxed, and they did the preocedure successfully, also instead of telling me about the usual sweets drinks etc the dentist directly told both my children. Very professional

This dentist is excellent they are so child friendly my son was terrified of the dentist and this dentist spent ages with them going through everything with my son, they did not rush my son and made appoint of saying they didn’t mind staying all night as long as my son was happy. Both my children are on first name terms with them and they think they are really cool, they make them laugh, but always explains about sugar and drinks and the damage they do. My son has completely changed his diet no fizzy drinks and very little sweet things, this was directly from a dentist visit here a few years ago They are great with adults too as I go their myself. Thanks to all the staff!
