All teeth contain a complex network of soft tissues and nerves. If these become infected you will need to come to the practice for endodontic (root canal) treatment.
If you experience any kind of tooth decay, we strongly advise that make an appointment to see your dentist.

Endodontic treatment can save affected teeth that might otherwise have to be removed. Your dentist will clear any tissue that is infected before ensuring that all the relevant root canals have been carefully cleaned and sealed. A crown may sometimes be required to restore the full functionality and appearance of the tooth.
Many patients are initially concerned about root canal treatment - but it can, in fact, be a relatively comfortable and pain-free experience. This is thanks to the latest anaesthetic options that are available. Our team of experienced dentists will do their best to ensure that you are as relaxed as possible during your treatment.
The team at The Crescent is led by Dr Altaf Hussain (Principal Dentist - GDC No. 77944). Altaf has over 20 years experience in general practice and has completed extensive postgraduate education, which includes advanced qualifications in restorative and aesthetic dentistry and facial aesthetics.
