We always endeavour to save teeth. Sometimes they are beyond help and need extracting, but wherever possible, if the damage is into the pulp or nerve supply of the tooth, we can consider endodontic therapy, or root canal therapy as it is more commonly known by.
Root canal treatment involves cleaning out the centre of the tooth and removing all infected debris. The remaining space is then filled to prevent re-infection and then the tooth is restored with a crown, inlay or onlay.
Not all teeth are capable of being treated this way and we have to take x-rays to assess the shape of the root canals and determine if this is possible. With improved treatment outcomes this is once again proving more popular.
"Extremely professional and courteous. Jens kept me informed throughout the procedure and carried out the treatment with the least amount of discomfort to me. I am delighted with the outcome and cannot fault my visit."

"Jens put me at ease by taking time to talk me through each stage of the treatment process, it really helped. Jens and Tricia seemed to work together really efficiently, I felt safe in their care and their friendly manner was appreciated."
