Root Canal

You can rest assured that PK Dental can provide root canal work by our own qualified Endodontists

Root canal treatment is required when there is disease or injury to the dental pulp in the centre of the tooth, which contains nerve endings and blood vessels. This work, which can usually save the tooth, is performed by an Endodontist.

An Endodontist is a dentist with additional specialist postgraduate qualifications. At PK Dental our qualified Endodontists use the very latest state-of-the-art technology to perform a variety of procedures including root canal therapy, oral surgery and the treatment of dental trauma.

Advances in technology and endodontics mean that root canal work today is much less daunting than it perhaps was even five years ago.’The treatment is usually less expensive and traumatic than extracting a damaged tooth and replacing it with an artificial one which may require an implant or bridge work.

If you are experiencing pain the first step is to make an appointment to see your DB dentist who will examine you and, if necessary, refer you to one of our qualified and experienced Endodontists. They will review your options and costs with you prior to any treatment being carried out.
