Saving a tooth from requiring an extraction with root canal treatment is one of the aspects of dentistry we do best.

Root canal treatment to address dental infections

Root canal treatment provides life-saving treatment for a tooth with a severe infection. This can happen when it becomes seriously injured as a result of a knock or blow or due to a substantial cavity.

When a tooth is infected, the live tissues inside the tooth start to die. Root canal treatment addresses the infection by killing the harmful bacteria and sealing it with a filling. At a follow-up appointment, a crown is placed to strengthen it in the long term and to ensure it looks completely natural again (infections can cause teeth to darken in colour).

Specialist care at Priory House Dental Centre

We have a specialist endodontist, Dr Steve Williams, at our practice, who has completed extensive training. With a specialist endodontist, you are in safe hands, as they have skill in dealing with highly complex cases requiring the restoration of infected teeth.
