          • I have been a patient of Dr Nandra for many years.
            Over this time the standard of care that I have received has always been truly outstanding.
            Other members of staff I have encountered, both reception and nursing have been friendly, very helpful and totally professional.

          • I am a nervous patient. I cry through the exam let alone any treatment!! Today these lovely people got me through an extraction with no sedation!!

          • Excellent first visit to the Rock Dental Practice. All the staff are friendly and professional. Particularly liked the 'real time' discussion about the Xray results - shown on a screen in the surgery a few minutes after they were taken. Can't get much better than that for patient care.

          • 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.

          • I had a wisdom tooth extracted at Rock House Dental Practice and am very happy with the service. Dr. Nandra was brilliant, it was all done in just a few minutes and I didn't feel a thing. Being in severe pain they managed to book me in for an appointment the day after I called in which was excellent. Highly... read more

          • I have been a patient here for a few years and the service is always first rate. All of the staff make you feel very welcome as going to the dentist is not everyone's cup of tea. I usually see Kiran who is highly professional and extremely dedicated. She always clearly explains what she has found in her examinations and... read more

          • 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.

          • Excellent!. Recently attended the practice with my mother in law who is extremely nervous. From the moment we stepped into the practice we were made very welcome.

The treatment options... read more

          • Went to This dentist today for an emergency appointment. Exceptional from receptionist to dentist. There’s no one more nervous about visiting the dentist than me and they made me feel completely at ease. Had to have the tooth extracted but my dentist Kiran made sure it was completely painless. Can’t thank you enough x

          • I am most fortunate to have Rock Dental Practice as my surgery, since the first day I walked into their practice over three years ago, I have received nothing less than a very warm and courteous reception from all staff.

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.
