Root canal, also called endodontic treatment, is the process of removing injured, infected or dead pulp from the tooth. It is a dental procedure used for treating infection at the centre of a tooth. It helps to repair and save a badly damaged or infected tooth. The infection is caused by bacteria that stay within your mouth. This may occur after:
Our dental surgeon will:
Consult our root canal specialist in London if you are looking to undergo the treatment. The bacteria will have to be removed for treating the infection and the affected area. This may be done by either extracting the tooth or trying to save it by removing the bacteria by performing a root canal treatment.
After the bacteria get removed, the root canal will be filled and the tooth will be closed with either a crown or a filing. The inflamed tissue present at the end of the tooth will cure naturally in most cases. Before opting for a root canal treatment, you will be given local anaesthesia to reduce the discomfort and ensure that the process is not painful. The treatment may require several visits to the endodontist in London depending on your case. After the treatment, your new teeth should look like the natural ones.
Most root canal treatments are known to achieve success; however, a tooth may last for nearly 10 years after the therapy is done.
It is extremely important to take proper care of your teeth after you undergo a root canal in London. Try not to bite or chew hard foods on the treated tooth until it is restored permanently. Excessive pressure on the tooth being treated may lead to a further crack or fracture. You can prevent the need for a root canal treatment in the future by:
Practice good oral hygiene that includes brushing twice and flossing once in a day to remove any food particles that may have accumulated within your teeth.
Consult our dentist at anytime if you need their valuable advice or care taken out of your teeth as well as root canal cost in London.
When a sudden toothache interrupted my London trip, I had the good fortune to be referred to Dr. Wahab Shakir.
He was exceptionally through, identified the problem(s), and provided me with an action plan (report and x-rays) to convey to my dentist back in the States. He also prescribed the really helpful medication I needed for my flight home.
He truly was a godsend, and I am most grateful!!
I have been a patient for the last year and I have always been satisfied with the treatments I received. The dentists, their assistants and the receptionist are friendly, informative and very professional.
The clinic is modern and well equipped.
I recommended this clinic to all my friends and few of them went there. They were extremely pleased- and I must say that I wasn’t surprised.
The kindest and most professional dentist I have seen in London. Not only the dentist, but also the other staff. They show honesty and understanding and they handled my emergency without any objections. I visited this practise for a cavity feeling. The dentist made it fun, and his work was truly professional! Highly recommended!
I have been in London for two years and have had to go to the dentist twice for quite important operations (a root canal treatment and an extraction).
The staff of the clinic is kind and efficient, I immediately felt in good hands.
Dr. Fabrizio Castellari is simply one of the best dentists I've ever had: serious empathic and able to work in total absence of pain.
This is a top notch dentist who makes you feel at ease which for someone liked me is important. The staff are very professional, polite, courteous and friendly. Marios, my dentist is extremely patient and cares about your dental care and the service you receive. Just received my new dentures and they have been done to a very high standard and am very pleased. I have nothing but praise for the staff and the treatment/service I received.
Best dentist I have ever found. Thank you for everything.
