Why is a root canal necessary?

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

A root canal is often the only option to save an infected tooth. Root canal therapy can help prevent the need for an extraction by removing the bacteria and diseased tissue from inside your tooth. We will often recommend protecting your root canal tooth with the proper restoration after treatment. With the proper care, root canal therapy can prolong the life of your tooth by years or even decades. Preserving your natural teeth is usually the best way to protect your health and smile.

To all our valued patients,

We have some news on the COVID-19 front. You may be aware of the recent changes to our restrictions that have been passed down this week regarding Dental Practices. As of Friday the 8th of May we will be operating at LEVEL 1 COVID-19 restrictions. All dental procedures are eligible at this level.
Additional screening and infection control procedures will still be in place including the use of hand sanitiser, pre-procedural mouth rinses and social distancing. We will explain this on an individual basis prior to your attendance at our surgery.

To stay up to date with Government information around COVID-19 

We hope you all continue to stay safe during this period.

Dr Gwendolin Flanagan and team.
