Endodontic and Root Canal Treatments

Procedures that are performed inside the teeth are called endodontic treatments. Specialists in this field will normally have a further two years specialist training as well as their initial dental qualification.

Getting to the root of things

One of the most common treatments performed by endodontic specialists in London is root canal treatment. Our specialists employ procedures that utilise cutting edge technology including special dental microscopes employed in the fight to save every tooth possible.


The soft tissue inside the tooth is called the "pulp" This is where nerves and blood vessels are located, protected by an outer hard layer of dentin.

A tooth might be compromised by:

  • Cracks

  • Damaged crowns

  • Chipping

  • Decay

  • Repeated procedures

If the pulp becomes inflamed or infected, painful abscesses may develop and, and cause pain. Fortunately, an adult tooth can receive all the nourishment it requires from the mouth environment, so by removing the inflamed or infected pulp the tooth can be saved and filled with a rubber-like material.
