Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment is an intricate procedure requiring great skill and precision by the clinician.

The treatment consists of firstly, removing the damaged or infected nerve inside the tooth which extends into the roots. Within the roots, the nerve sits in the ‘root canals’. The root canals are then thoroughly cleaned and shaped. The final stage involves filling the whole length of the root canal with a special root canal filling material.

Here at Caterham Dental Care, our clinicians use the latest techniques and equipment in carrying out this complex procedure to ensure the best possible outcome for our patients. We use effective local anaesthetics throughout to ensure our patients are comfortable for the whole procedure.
