Let’s Get to the Root

Root canal treatment is the solution offered for a nasty infection or decay deep in your tooth.

Signs you may need root canal treatment include consistent pain, swollen or pimply gums, discolouration of the tooth and prolonged sensitivity.

If you leave it too long before having a root canal, a deep infection could cause further problems and eventually, tooth loss. Untreated infections can also turn into extremely painful abscesses.

Our experienced team includes specialist endodontist Dr Massimo Giovarruscio, who enjoys two decades of experience treating complex root canal cases. Dr Giovarruscio is also an endodontics lecturer and teacher with King’s College London.

If you’re unlucky enough to experience a deep tooth infection, you couldn’t be in better hands.

We’ll remove the infected pulp deep inside the tooth before cleaning the area. Then, we’ll fill and reseal the tooth.

It’s likely you won’t need a second treatment as the tooth is completely sealed off from further infection.

You may also receive antibiotics to help fight the infection, depending on the severity of the condition.
