Root Canals

ROOT CANAL TREATMENT: Getting to the root of the problem.

If the pulp tissue of the tooth has become infected through decay or injury, a root canal treatment is needed to remove the damaged tissue and fill the space to prevent further infection.

The High Street Smile team are experienced in root fillings, starting with a radiograph or x-ray to get a clear picture of the roots and enable effective cleaning.

A root canal may need two or more visits, but your dentist will guide you through the entire procedure, looking after you through every step.
