Root Canal Treatment

We are very lucky to have an endodontist at the practice who is on the specialist endodontic register. She can diagnose the cause of tooth pain, and carry out root canal treatment, repeat root canal treatment or endodontic surgery where required.

A general dentist or self – referral to an endodontist can be received for the following procedures:

Primary root canal treatment of teeth with anatomical complexities such as:

  • Combination of curved, narrow, long root canals;
  • Multiple curves in root canals
  • Calcified pulp chamber or root canals; canal space not visible on diagnostic quality radiographs;
  • Adults with incomplete root development;
  • Re-root treatment
  • Anatomical anomalies (e.g. invaginations; palato-gingival grooves).
  • Surgical endodontic treatment of restoratively sound teeth when orthograde endodontic treatment is not viable.
  • Acute traumatic dento-alveolar injuries in adults or consequences thereof.
  • Vital pulp therapy (traumatic pulp exposures; stabilised deep caries with adequate tooth structure, possible exposure and absence of periapical disease).
  • Root resorption: affecting single restoratively viable tooth or affecting multiple teeth.
  • Endodontic diagnosis or opinion
  • Facilitation or management of complex retreatment
  • Post removal and instrument retrieval
  • Canal location or negotiation.
  • Endodontic treatment of second or third molar teeth

More Difficult cases that may need a more complex treatment plan, such as:

  • 1. Patients who have untreated primary dental disease.
  • 2. Teeth of questionable restorative prognosis 
  • 3. Treatment requiring conscious sedation
  • 4. Teeth that have not been possible to anaesthetise

We may progress the root canal treatment to a point where the rest of the treatment can then be completed in general dental practice.
