Endodontics or root canal treatment is carried out on teeth where the nerve of the tooth has been damaged by decay or trauma.
This treatment may also be necessary prior to crowning a tooth. Root canal treatment involves the removal of the pulp tissue of a tooth when it becomes irreversibly inflamed or infected.
Debris within the canals is removed and the canals are cleaned and disinfected prior to being filled and sealed with a root filling. The tooth is then restored back to its full shape and function with a permanent filling or a crown.
“Mr & Mrs Brown run a family dental business in Hampton Wick and I have been looked after extremely well. They have gone out of their way to make sure that you, as a patient, feel special. They always take the time to ask me how my family are and take great care to ensure that each appointment is as easy and stress free as possible.
On one occasion I had great pain after a particularly difficult root canal treatment with the wonderful endodontist Apos, and Mr Brown took the trouble to drive to my house after work to give me a higher dosage of pain killer. Mrs Brown phoned me and everything was done to make sure that I did not suffer.
I cannot recommend the Hampton Wick Dental Centre highly enough.”
“Like a lot of folk, who aren’t particularly enamoured with metal implements being probed inside their mouths, I hadn’t visited the dentist for some time, 7 years to be exact, and would have quite happily carried on in ignorant bliss of any dentist. So, I was rather dismayed when part of a tooth broke off and I was forced to find a new one, fortunately my boss recommended hers at The Hampton Wick Dental Centre.
