Root canal treatment is required when the nerve inside your tooth becomes infected through decay, trauma or by an injury to your mouth. This infection can spread through the root canal system which can eventually lead to an abscess. Root canal treatment is the last resort to save a tooth otherwise it will need to be extracted.
The treatment procedure involves removing harmful bacteria present within the root canal system of the infected tooth. Once the infection has been thoroughly cleaned out, the dentist will shape and fill the root canal and seal your tooth, which will help to prevent further infection.
A local anaesthetic is used before carrying out the treatment, which should feel no different to having an ordinary filling placed. Root canal treatment is a skilled and time-consuming procedure that can require two appointments, but this will vary according to the anatomy of the tooth.
Following root canal treatment the tooth is weaker and so we may advise you to consider a crown or onlay on the tooth to provide extra support and strength to the tooth. Root filled teeth may also darken after treatment.
If there is any discolouration, there are several treatment cosmetic options to restore the natural appearance of the tooth which can be discussed with the dentist.
To help keep this treatment as affordable as possible we ensure our prices are extremely competitive compared to other Endodontists in Chessington and surrounding Surrey areas.

Most people associate root canals with pain, but modern techniques and anesthesia have made the procedure much more comfortable than it used to be.
You may experience some discomfort during the procedure, but the dentist will numb the area around the affected tooth so you should not feel any pain. After the procedure, you may experience some sensitivity or discomfort, but this can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain medications.
The length of a root canal procedure can vary depending on the complexity of the case, but most procedures can be completed in one or two appointments. A single-visit root canal may take a few hours, while a multi-visit procedure may take several weeks.
Most people can resume normal activities immediately after a root canal procedure, but you may experience some discomfort or sensitivity for a few days after the procedure. You should avoid chewing on the affected tooth until the tooth has been restored with a crown or other dental restoration.
If the pulp inside a tooth is damaged or infected, a root canal is usually the only option to save the tooth. If the damage is severe or the tooth cannot be saved, extraction may be necessary. However, it is usually recommended to save the natural tooth whenever possible.
