Root Canal (Endodontics)

Root Canal Treatment

We can save a tooth that is badly decayed or infected from the inside.
Using the latest technology, advanced techniques, and deep numbing treatment will make your experience pain-free and straightforward

Root canal treatment (also called Endodontics) is needed when the pulp inside the tooth becomes infected or damaged. This infection may spread through the root canal system, which could lead to an abscess, causing a great deal of discomfort. If root canal treatment is not carried out, the tooth may need to be removed.

Details of The Procedure

Our dentists can perform root canal treatment to stop the infection from spreading preserving as much of the tooth as possible. Using specific techniques and advanced equipment, the procedure is performed under a local anesthetic. Patients feel about the same level of discomfort as they would at the beginning of a regular filling procedure.

The treatment aims are to remove all infection from the root canal. The root is then cleaned and filled to prevent any further infection. A temporary filling is put in and the tooth is left to settle. The tooth is checked at a later visit and when all the infection has cleared, the tooth is permanently filled.

Root canal treatment is a skilled and time-consuming procedure. Most courses of treatment will involve two or more visits to your dentist. At the first appointment, the infected pulp is removed. Any abscesses, which may be present, can also be drained at this time. The root canal is then cleaned and shaped ready for filling. A temporary filling is put in and the tooth is left to settle.

Aftercare of The Root Canal Treatment

The tooth is checked at a later visit and when all the infection has cleared, the tooth is permanently filled or restored with post and crown.

The alternative is to have the tooth extracted. Once the pulp is destroyed, it can’t heal and it is not recommended to leave an infected tooth in the mouth. Although some people would prefer an extraction, it is usually best to keep as many natural teeth as possible.

Root-treated teeth should be treated in the same way as other teeth. Remember to clean your teeth at least once a day, preferably with fluoride toothpaste. As far as possible, avoid sugary foods, and keep them only to mealtimes. See your dentist for regular check-ups.

Absolutely best dentistry! Reception and team were so welcoming, reassuring and friendly. Thanks so much for such caring and gentle treatment. You can trust most sensitive and complicated teeth to Dr Andy and Dr Halil. Dr Nuria is just brilliant! Couldn't be happier with all my visits.

I am an avid user of dental services and have been for the last 15 years + Hence having experienced a wide range of providers I’m pleased to recommend icare, they are a very customer centric dentist that are compassionate & practical, I specifically used them for a couple of extractions as well as general review. Dr Ash and her colleagues are very experienced and professional and provide a high level of care.

There is a reason why this dental practice consistently has a 5-star rating. It is only after you have experienced their exceptional treatment and service that it becomes obvious. Dr Halil, Jessica and the entire team have been incredible - very professional, thorough and highly skilled. I am very happy with the work they have done and to say that the quality of service I have received here was anything short of spectacular would simply be a lie.

I have difficulty trusting dentists since I had braces in my teenage for 4,5 years and had a really good doctor at that time. So... after 10 years I've been very worried finding the right dentist. And thankfully I've found Andy at iCare Dental who with his lovely assistant made me trust them and made my teeth nearly perfect again. I will always get back to them and I'm very grateful for their kindness and professionalism, trusting a dentist again... Also, now I'm listening to them and not just taking care of my teeth on a higher level then before (with interdental brush and electric tooth brush), but also visiting the dentist every now and then to do cleaning and checkup.

This was probably one of the best dental experiences I've had. Dr Halil made the (many) visits as comfortable and painless as possible (to the point i've accidentally fallen asleep a few times). I will be sure to visit again for upcoming treatments/check ups. The team is also super hospitable. Highly recommended
