Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment or endodontic treatment is the procedure needed to save a tooth when the nerve inside becomes infected through decay or injury.

Untreated, an abscess can form causing pain and sometimes swelling.

The tooth’s best chance of survival is to clean the infection from the tooth and place a root filling. The tooth is then restored, often with a crown to provide extra support and strength.

Root canal treatment is a highly skilled procedure performed by Dr Fadi Kreishan, who has a Masters in Endodontics degree from Manchester University. This postgraduate training focuses entirely on the complex and up to date treatment of root filled teeth. Using our state-of-the-art, cutting edge, operating dental microscope, Fadi is able to give a promising outcome to compromised teeth, sometimes when an extraction has been the only other course of action.
