Root canal treatment involves removing the tooth’s pulp (a tissue that lies in the centre of the tooth) if it has become infected. This treatment is revolutionary as it means we can save your tooth and restore it back to full health with a root canal filling, rather than removing the tooth and leaving a gap in your smile.
There are many reasons why the pulp of a tooth might become infected. The most common causes are:
We carry out root canal treatment under local anaesthetic, so rest assured you won’t feel any pain at all during the procedure. Once the root canal has been sealed, you’ll no longer suffer with toothache and will be able to eat, talk and smile in total comfort.

Infections in the tooth can cause a lot of pain, so it’s essential to get treatment as soon as you can if you’re suffering. Our gentle dentists know how daunting dental treatment can be; they are on hand to make sure you always feel at ease when you visit Ollie & Darsh.
Root canal treatment is carried out over a series of appointments. The first step in placing a root canal filling is to remove the pulp from the infected tooth. This is done using local anaesthetic, so you won’t feel a thing. We’ll then clean the root canals and get them ready for the filling.
Once the root canal has been filled with a special material known as gutta percha, we may need to restore your tooth with a larger filling or dental crown.
Dental treatments can be daunting, however, at Ollie & Darsh we take all the stress away from you!
