Root Canal Therapy

Root Canal Therapy

Rooting out problem pulp.

If the inner part of your tooth (the pulp) has become infected due to decay, a deep filling or trauma, it will need to be removed, cleaned and filled to stop the infection spreading and to save your precious tooth.

Benefits of root canal therapy

  • Stops an infected tooth from being extracted
  • Removes a source of infection that could potentially spread
  • Prevents problems associated with losing a tooth
  • Relieves pain
  • Less expensive than replacing a lost tooth

How root canal therapy works

  • We take an x-ray to check the condition of the root canals and surrounding bone.
  • The infected pulp is removed under a local anaesthetic and the root canals are flushed clean with an anti-bacterial solution.
  • The canals are expertly shaped with tiny, flexible instruments and washed again to remove any debris.
  • The freshly cleaned root canals are filled with a rubber compound to seal the tooth and prevent further infection.
  • The filled root canal is sealed with a permanent filling or it may need a crown to help restore tooth shape and functionality.

The Garston advantage

Our principal dentist, Clare Robinson, has a Postgraduate Certificate in Endodontics (that’s the proper name for treating pulp problems) and she also uses WaveOne® Gold Technology, an advanced endodontic system that provides a simpler, safer and more precise way to shape root canals prior to filling.

Root canal therapy has a reputation for being painful but our extensive experience and expertise will ensure it is as comfortable as possible.
