Root Fillings (Root Canal Treatment)
What are root fillings?
Teeth are held in the jaw by their roots, which have nerves inside of them. When there is decay or an injury, it can cause the root to die, which can result in an abscess at the end of the tooth. Root fillings involve removing damaged or dead nerves and filling the space. This allows your Dentist to repair the tooth that is left.

What is an extraction?
When your Dentist refers to the term extraction, it simply means to take a tooth of your mouth. This may be necessary if a tooth is very decayed, damaged or has become loose due to gum disease. Sometimes children’s teeth are taken out to give new or remaining teeth enough room to grow.
What does this treatment involve?
What are they?
Wisdom teeth appear at the back of the mouth, generally from the late teens onwards. Most people have four wisdom teeth, but it is not unusual to have fewer or even none. As they are the last teeth to form, there sometimes isn’t room for them. This can cause them to come through at an angle, pressing against the teeth in front or the bone behind. If you think that you have a problem, you should tell your Dentist.
What will my Dentist do?
It is important to look after your mouth after you have had a tooth taken out, so that you can speed up the healing process and prevent infection. Here is some general advice for looking after yourself.
Currently we provide sedation for extractions with our Specialist Oral Surgeon for an additional cost of £220. For nervous or anxious patients, sedation is a safe and effective solution.
Please ensure you bring somebody with you and eat a light meal a few hours before treatment.
