Root Canal Treatment

Icon

Root canal treatment is needed when the nerve of your tooth or its blood supply – the pulp - has been infected through decay or injury. An infection in the pulp can cause an abscess, which is an inflamed area where the pus collects, and its symptoms range from a dull ache to a severe pain. If root canal treatment is not carried out, the infection will spread and your tooth may need to be taken out.

Treatment involves a local anaesthetic to numb your jaw, while the infected pulp is removed and any abscesses are drained. The root canal is then cleaned and shaped, ready for filling. A temporary filling is put in and the tooth is left to settle. A second visit is required to check the tooth is free from infection and then it is permanently filled. Further appointments may be required if additional cosmetic treatments, such as a crown, is needed.

Root canal treatment is completed over a number of stages. First stage treatment is £120, followed by £280 for second stage and £120 for third stage. Second and third stages will be done together where possible, which may reduce the cost.
