Restore your Smile with Endodontics

Gentle & Tooth-Saving Root Canal Treatment in Salisbury.

Root canals are an incredible tooth-saving procedure that provides relief from infection and prevents your natural smile from further damage. Infections can occur due to accidental dental trauma, deep cavities or cracked teeth. When harmful bacteria enter the inner layer of your tooth (the pulp), the resulting infection can cause swelling, bleeding, and pain.

Root Canals at Sarum Dental Practice, Wiltshire:

  • Save infected teeth from extraction
  • Relieve painful toothache
  • Stop infection spreading in the mouth
  • Prevent tooth loss

Root canals remove the infection from deep within the tooth and gum line and disinfect the surrounding area. Once cleaned, we will cap the remaining structure of the affected tooth with a natural-looking crown to protect the tooth from future issues.

Root canal procedures save smiles from inevitable tooth loss that can occur from dental infections.


Why do I need root canal treatment?

Root canal treatment is needed if you’re dentist identifies a bacterial infection deep below the gum line and surrounding the tooth’s pulp. Infection and inflammation can be very painful and can result in tooth loss if not treated.

What happens if an infected tooth is not treated?

Tooth infection that is left untreated can quickly spread to other areas of the mouth and body. Severe infections can result in fever, trouble swallowing and even problems breathing. It’s vital to consult your dentist if you suspect you have a tooth infection so they can treat the issue before it becomes a bigger problem.

What can I do to prevent root canal treatment?

A good oral hygiene routine is sufficient to remove any harmful plaque and tartar build-up, reducing the chance of cavities forming and infection. If your tooth has recently suffered trauma, chipped, or has broken, make sure to see your dentists as soon as possible. They will make sure the tooth is sufficiently cleaned and capped to reduce the chance of infection.

Root Canals are Nothing to Worry About

Root canals, or endodontic dentistry, are not the scary and painful procedures you’ve been led to believe. This treatment provides immediate relief from pain and is conducted with numbing agents and even anaesthetic if needed. All our dentists practice a gentle approach to root canal treatment and will ensure you are comfortable throughout your appointment with us.
