Endodontics or root canal treatment is a complex and demanding area of dentistry. Sometimes your dentist may feel that it would be better for you to be treated by someone with further training in root canal work and the experience and specialist equipment necessary to provide the best possible standard of care for you.
Darlington Endodontics is renowned for its high level of expertise and quality of care, so you can be assured that you really are in the best possible hands.
Root canal treatment is required when the pulp inside the root or roots of your teeth dies and becomes infected. This can happen as a result of accidental damage, decay or the presence of a deep filling.
If the infected tissue is not removed it can cause an abscess. This can be extremely painful and can lead to damage in the bone around the tooth. Without treatment, the infection can spread, which usually leads to loss of the tooth.
Root canal treatment involves removing the infected pulp, cleaning and then filling the root canals. The root canals are extremely small and are rarely straight, which is why it is often treated by someone with the necessary finely-tuned skills and specialist equipment.
The treatment may take more than one visit to complete so we may have to use a temporary filling. Your own dentist may recommend fitting a crown afterwards to strengthen the tooth.
Root canal treatment can save your tooth, enabling you to keep it for many years to come.
WOW – no less than 5 star treatment throughout.
I was seen at Darlington Endodontics needing root canal treatment, I was immediately put at ease. Dr Shavit talked me through step by step what would need to happen. He took his time and continually asked me if I was ok. I truly felt he was putting my feelings at the forefront of the whole treatment. After many weeks of pure agony – I was pain free within 90 minutes. I work in an environment where the customer is at the heart of everything we do – Dr Shavit certainly displayed this quality. The most exceptional, professional service I have ever received from a dentist and his team.

I visited Darlington Endodontics having to have a root canal treatment, I was quite nervous about this but once I met Dr Shavit and his nurses they put me at ease straightaway. The procedure was explained thoroughly and on the day the treatment was pain free. I would highly recommend Darlington Endodontics.
