Root Canal Treatment: What to Expect

Our warm and welcoming reception

Root canal treatment is a procedure that’s used to save a tooth that’s infected or badly decayed.

It’s a common misconception that root canal treatment is painful. In fact, it’s the opposite. Root canal treatment is used to relieve the pain caused by an infected tooth. And it’s done under local anesthetic, so you won’t feel any pain at all.

The reason why it’s called “root canal treatment” is because the procedure involves removing the infected pulp from inside the tooth, and then cleaning and disinfecting the root canals.

The root canals are the tiny passages that run from the pulp chamber in the center of the tooth, to the very bottom of the tooth roots.

Once the root canals are cleaned and disinfected, they’re filled with a rubber-like material called gutta-percha, which is used to seal the tooth.

After that, a filling is placed on top of the gutta-percha to seal the tooth completely.

The final step is to place a crown on top of the tooth to protect it. This is because a tooth that’s had root canal treatment is more brittle than a healthy tooth, so it needs the extra protection.

Root canal treatment is a very common procedure, and it’s the only way to save a tooth that’s infected or badly decayed.

If you’re experiencing toothache, then you should book an appointment with us as soon as possible. Toothache is a sign that you might need root canal treatment, and the sooner you get it, the better.

I came here for Invisalign, whitening and composite bonding and I couldn’t be happier with the whole experience!!

The service was amazing from everyone start to finish and my teeth look amazing 💗 I will 100% recommend Dentozen to anyone I know :)

I went to Dentozen first time. I felt very lucky to pick this place. Normally I am very nervous when I visit dentist, this time I was not.

The filling she made I was very happy. Her hand was light and came out of place with big smile and pain free.

Thank you Neha Patel.

I was leaving London the next day to travel to NZ when my crown became loose.

I emailed Dentozen that night, not expecting a reply. I was amazingly given an appointment for early the very next morning on a bank holiday.

My crown was very securely fixed, taking away the high stress of it falling out on my massive journey home. Plus a bonus are that their fees are very reasonable!!

The Dentozen team are superstars!

I cannot thank you enough,
Fay

I called Dentozen whilst I was experiencing dreadful toothache. I was seen pretty much immediately on the Sunday and after X-rays it was found I needed root canal. I was given antibiotics and I was booked in for the next day. I have no pain threshold at all and I was dreading it.

The service and comfort I received from Dr Patel and Nurse Fabiana was just amazing. I actually did not feel a thing. They were kind and supportive the whole time. I had to go back for the crown scan and then a week after for the crown to be fitted. Again the way I was treated was first class.

I cannot recommend this place enough. I have booked to have my teeth witened in a few weeks and I know I will be treated as wonderful as before. Also a thank you to the two ladies who I’ve seen on reception.

Also so lovely and always accommodating. I travel from Essex to come here and it is not the easiest of journeys - but it is definitely worth it. I highly recommend.

Ditch your dentist and come to Dentozen. It's an experience like no other. You will be forgiven to think that you're in one of Londons top Spa (or hotel). Let's start with the reception area. Zen-like, beautiful and your met by pleasant receptionist.

The decor is not just to lure you into the practice but designed to give you a calming 'your in good hands' feeling. No expense was spared on the latest state of the art dental equipment. No more bulky x-ray machines and horrible square thingys that go in your mouth!

To be honest if it wasn't for the wirring of the scaler I would have fallen asleep. Normally I would have insisted on at least 6 anasthetic injuctions to numb my mouth but this is the first time I had treatment without!

Dr Patel clearly loves her job and has every concern for the patient. It was worth the travel from South London over to North. AND there's ample free parking. 2 minutes walk from Bushy Hill train station. Arguably the best dental surgery to date. Seeing is believing!

I recently had an excellent experience. From the moment I walked in, I was greeted with a warm and friendly receptionist who made me feel welcome and comfortable.

The dental team is highly professional and knowledgeable, Dr. Zohaib Hashmi best dentist I've ever had, really made sure I wasn't in any pain, he took the time to explain every step of my treatment process in detail. I felt confident and reassured in their care.

The practice is immaculate, which gave me peace of mind. Overall, I would highly recommend to anyone seeking top-notch dental care from a friendly and caring team. Thank you so much.

Another amazing experience at Dentozen! Friendly welcome by Saba. She talked me through the whole process and discussed my skin concerns before getting the hydro facial. Amazing relaxing experience and left with the most glowing and hydrated skin! Couldn’t recommend Dentozen enough.

Veronica Loizides

I was recommended by two friends that had used Dentozen before. I am so happy I went with their recommendation. I had composite on 6 teeth which I am so happy with. I’ve had so many compliments. It did take me a week or so to get used to them ,they felt big at first compared to my original teeth. However a week in and I can’t stop smiling. I am booking to have more done. Thank you so much Dentozen

Shirley Ryan

I've not had the best experience with dentists and not only hated but feared having to see one.

I walked into Dentozens Dental spa and was immediately put at ease by the ambience but also the lovely friendly spirited ladies at the reception.

I then met my dental physician and she was lovely and put me at ease with her professional assessment and clear plan of treatment needed for my issues. I am more confident in the treatment set out For me in this surgery than at any other time. From my first experience with Dentozen dental practice I was already rushing home to recommend to my family. So far so good

Keith Walsh

I can't recommend dentozen enough. From my first contact they were extremely helpful from booking my initial appointment to making time to change for me to come in for an emergency extraction when the pain got unbearable.

From reception to treatment everything was calm relaxing and welcoming and very helpful for after care advice. It's probably not something someone says everyday but I am looking forward to my next appointment. Thank you
