ROOT CANAL TREATMENTS
Professional solutions handled by the experts at Crawley Dental Clinic. Trust us with a range of treatments, including root canals. Call the team to discuss your individual requirements.
A PREVENTATIVE TREATMENT
In some instances, an oral infection can make its way to the tooth's nerve, invading the root and leading to abscesses and swelling in the bone and gum, which can be very painful. If an x-ray shows this is the cause of your discomfort, a root canal treatment will be recommended.
During a root canal, your dentist will aim to remove all infection and debris from the infected tooth, preventing the need for an extraction and promoting the health of your natural teeth. If you wish to discuss this procedure in further detail, or want to know more about cost, simply get in touch with our knowledgeable team.
KEEPING YOU IN THE LOOP
We'll always look to the best approach to treat oral infections and prevent the need for invasive treatments. However, if a root canal proves to be the best way forward for you, we'll ensure you understand the procedure and its purpose before we get started. We want you to be comfortable and confident in Crawley Dental Clinic and open communication is the best way to ensure this.

A PRECISE PROCEDURE HANDLED BY THE EXPERTS
To begin, the damaged or infected nerve and structure is removed. We'll then cleanse and shape the inner canal to prevent reinfection and promote the root canal's success.
Finally, the shaped canal(s) are filled and sealed and the tooth is now ready to be restored. It is a skilled and time-consuming procedure that can require two or more visits however, the benefits are manifold, and we could completely avoid the need to remove the infected tooth.
Why people believe in us
"Don’t know where to start apart from the best practice I have ever been to! I had the unfortunate news of needing root canal and an extraction and that just did it for me! I was a mess of tears and anxiety! But the receptionists, nurse and dentist were beyond patient and got me thru! Even my friend was impressed!
I was unbelievably anxious, and they were just all so wonderful. I am so very grateful!"
