Root canal treatment
Endodontic treatment or root canal therapy is undertaken to preserve a tooth that would otherwise need to be extracted. You may have been advised by your dentist that you require a root filling or re-treatment. Usually you will have been referred by your general dentist, although some patients do seek advice of their own accord.
BPI dental offers a friendly, sympathetic environment so that you will feel confident and relaxed when you attend for treatment. Our professional and welcoming staff are always available to make your visit as comfortable as possible. Quality of care is paramount and we maintain the highest standards to offer the most appropriate level of dental care.
Initial consultation begins with an clinical assessment, including any appropriate digital x-rays, a diagnosis and costs involved. The clinician will then give you your treatment options and possible outcomes. This will also give you an opportunity to ask any questions you may have and help you decide how you wish to proceed.
Usually this is followed by another visit to complete the endodontic treatment. Occasionally extra visits may be required for more complex or demanding cases. Once the treatment is completed we will return you to your own dentist for continuing dental care with a report of the treatment we have undertaken.
