Root Canal Treatment & Endodontic Care

Root canal treatments (endodontics) is a dental procedure that is often prescribed to treat infections at the centre of the tooth, or the tooth’s pulp (pulpitis).

Root canal treatment is not painful and is a tried-and-tested way of saving failing teeth.


The consequences of ignoring tooth decay

If tooth decay is not treated, it can lead to an infection of the dental pulp, the soft tissue at the centre of the tooth.

This infection can cause toothache, painful abscesses and, eventually, tooth loss. We can treat a pulp infection with root canal treatment.

If you are experiencing a severe toothache, you may require root canal treatment. Call us on 020 8224 7562 to book an appointment for an examination. 

If you need a root canal treatment but are feeling nervous about the procedure, talk to your dentist about the sedation service we provide for anxious patients.

Dr Ali Rifai was professional and I am very pleased with the outcome of my Invisalign's. I have been with this practice for many years and would highly recommend. The staff are very friendly and nothing is an issue.

Can't thank this practice enough for all their help. I don't post reviews very often, so when I do, it's because an impression has been left! Dr Ali saw me at short notice to help fix a broken tooth. The nurse (I think her name was Danni) was so helpful and kind, as were the rest of the team. Thank you for being there for me in my hour of need (the same day i asked for an appointment!)
