What Is Root Canal Treatment?

Root Canal Treatment (Endodontics) is required when a patient has an infection deep within their tooth. Moreover, this can be due to there being an infection of the nerve supply or blood. If this is left untreated, this kind of infection can lead to a lot of pain – it can even lead to tooth abscess or tooth loss. In the early stages, you may not feel any pain or discomfort, however if your tooth darkens in shade this is a sign that your tooth nerve is in danger of dying.

The infection at the centre of a tooth (the root canal) is caused by bacteria that lives in the mouth and invade the tooth. This can happen after:

  • Tooth decay
  • Leaky fillings
  • Damage to teeth as a result of trauma (such as a fall)

To treat the infection in the root canal, the bacteria need to be removed. This can be done by either:

  • Removing the bacteria from the root canal system (Root Canal Treatment).
  • Removing the tooth (Extraction).

Removing the tooth is not usually recommended as it’s better to keep as many of your natural teeth as possible. After the bacteria has been removed, the root canal is filled and the tooth sealed with a filling or crown. In most cases the inflamed tissue near the tooth will heal naturally.

Before having Root Canal Treatment, you’ll usually be given a local anaesthetic. This means the procedure should be painless and no more unpleasant than having a filling. Root Canal Treatment is usually successful. In about 9 out of 10 cases a tooth can survive for up to 10 years after Root Canal Treatment.

Common Signs Of Infection

Root canal treatment is only required when dental X-rays show that the pulp has been damaged by a bacterial infection. The pulp will begin to die if it’s infected by bacteria, allowing the bacteria to then multiply and spread.

Nervous Of The Dentist?

Pain-Free Treatment, With Specialist Sedation Dentistry

We have a team of Sedation Dentistry Specialists. Sedation Dentistry helps patients relax during procedures. It’s often referred to as ‘Sleep Dentistry’, although that’s not entirely accurate. Patients are usually awake with the exception of those under General Anaesthesia.

Sedation is useful for calming nerves, managing sensitivity or gag reflexes during procedures. It is particularly beneficial for major dental treatments.

Client Reviews

Alleviating Pain With Root Canal Treatment

Being someone who is absolutely petrified of going to the dentists has resulted me in having gum decease. I came across Mark Tangri on social media and straight away he caught my attention as he hit home with all the things I wanted to hear giving me comfort and confidence. I then booked a consultation and from the time I walked in to the time I left I have never felt so comfortable and supported from a dentist. I have since had treatment and have never looked back. I highly recommend this practise 100 times over.

Nina Mathari

I’ve been a patient of Marks for 15 years now. I am an exceptionally phobic patient – and am quite difficult to manage when triggered – and Mark has gone above and beyond to develop my trust so that I can receive treatment. He puts my needs first and for a long time has focused on me maintaining my oral health with minimal treatment by condensing it into one appointment to manage my fear and stress. I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Ever. And have referred friends to Mark. The team he has at his surgery are friendly and understanding and very helpful too. I can’t recommend enough.

Claire Till

I had a good experience. I am 14 and having braces with another practice and had to have teeth removed. Some of my teeth were extra teeth and buried under my gums deep in the bone. I had sedation to remove these teeth. I felt comfortable and safe. I recommend this place and so does my mom and family.

Eiman Salamati

Have been a patient for many years. I followed Dr Mark to his new practice and will continue to be his patient as long as he continues dentistry. He is gentle when working, meticulous which results in fantastic results that are long lasting. His staff are brilliant, truly dental excellence. I can’t praise them enough.

Lainagh Reid

I’m exceptionally nervous of dentists, and have put off making an appointment for ‘many’ years – however I really needed to get my teeth looked at. After reading reviews of the many dentists in the area, I picked Mark Tangri, as it seemed to be well regarded by previous patients. I made the right choice! The staff are welcoming, and really put me at ease – the waiting time for appointments is minimal. Treatment options were fully discussed and explained, and the treatment itself was undertaken with the care and professionalism that I hoped for. If it wasn’t for my phobia, I’d even say I’m’ looking forward’ to going back..!

Sean Rhodes

Shezzy Kay

First time at Mark Tangri Dental Excellence and an impressive experience, excellent and facilities, with friendly and welcoming staff on hand to ease any worries. Initially, I was nervous with my diagnosis ( gum disease), but the outstanding dental service and advice from Mark Tangri with regards to my treatment gave me confidence that I am in good hands. I am optimistic for a good outcome following further visits. I even decided on my first visit to pay monthly for a cost-effective Denplan payment plan to enjoy a happy and healthy smile!

S M (Siamese)

I am currently going through my Invisalign journey with Mark and the team. From the moment I walked in to the practice I was treated like family. He talked me through all my options, if I didn’t understand something he would repeat everything again. We spent hours talking to make sure I knew and understood everything. I am on my 4th week and it’s going great. I’m so looking forward to my end results.
