          • My first visit was an emergency appointment, I spoke to them on the phone at 10:30 and I had been seen by 11:30. I was dealt with professionally and quickly with the best solution for me being their priority. I was disappointed with the price but I was presented with the options and made the best choice for me.

          • I had used rock house for an emergency treatment and they seen me within an hour and managed to alleviate the pain. I then had a few more treatments too.
            I had some concerns with one treatment but Anoup has gone above and beyond to ensure that this was rectified. I genuinely can’t fault their approach to customer satisfaction.

          • These guys have proved time and again for me that they care more, when I needed emergency care they performed miracles and then repeatedly rang me to check how I was. Then they coached me to make sure it didn't reoccur. They've repeatedly told me not to have treatment if they wouldn't themselves rather than just selling to the max.... read more

          • Great practice with very professional staff. Dr Nandra and his team always put my family at ease about trips to the dentist and even my 2 under 5 now enjoy their visits which is a result given they wouldn’t even go into the room on their first trip! Could not recommend the practice enough.

Root Canal Treatment

Endodontic Treatment

Root canal or endodontic treatment is scary, right? Wrong - it certainly shouldn't be. Root canal treatment saves teeth that would otherwise need extraction and that can only be a good thing. The horror stories that you may have heard regarding the treatment being painful are also wrong; its the infection within the tooth that is painful. Removal of the nerve supply to the tooth means that endodontic treatment should not be painful.

What is Root Canal Treatment?

Endodontic treatment will rid the tooth of harmful bugs or bacteria within the root canal system. Tooth decay or gum disease cause damage to the tooth and allow bugs to enter into the nerve structure. These bugs and bacteria cause inflammation within the nerve structure. The nerve is a little brain within each tooth and this grey mater expands when it becomes inflamed. This is similar to when you get a headache, however, when the brain expands, the skull bones are also able to shift and allow expansion. As the tooth is a closed unit, i.e. it does not expand, the expansion from inflammation is acutely painful. Any of you that have experienced tooth pain will be able to vouch for that, I'm sure.

Untreated, an infected root canal system will cause the infection to progress to a dental abscess which in turn, will cause the face to swell up. This abscess is full of pus and will require drainage.

Endodontic treatment removes the infected nerve structure from within the tooth, leaving a hollow tooth. It's a bit like taking the fuse out of a plug. After disinfection of the internal aspect of the tooth, the root canal structure is filled by a material known as gutta percha to prevent bugs and bacteria from re-entering the system. Finally, a dental crown or similar will restore the tooth to a functional state.

Who provides Root Canal Treatment?

A general dentist or an endodontist performs endodontics. An endodontist is a dentist who specialises in root treatments. The procedure involves the use of specialised equipment such as rubber dam and a dental microscope.
