Avoids the need for tooth extraction
Teeth that are extremely damaged, or decayed, are an infection risk. To prevent infection entering your blood or nerve supply, our root canal treatment near Brighton is carried out. During the root canal treatment, your dentist will thoroughly clean your problem teeth, remove any infection present and administer a filling to restore the tooth shape.
If you have painful toothache and believe that your tooth may be infected, please get in touch with us as soon as possible. Any delay may lead to you losing your tooth and further pain. An anaesthetic will be used to ensure that our root canal treatment near Brighton is comfortable. Once complete and healed, your tooth will be pain-free, with a discreet, white filling, porcelain inlay or crown on top.

A root canal treatment is required when the soft tissue inside your teeth becomes infected by decay or injury. The infection needs to be removed before it spreads, causing you more pain and future dental complications. Your dentist will access the soft tissue of your root canal by making a tiny hole in your tooth. The canals are then refilled and a filling applied.
It’s worth bearing in mind that root canal treatment is made in an attempt to save a tooth, however, not all root canal treatment is successful. It all depends on the tooth involved. There’s still a chance the tooth may fail following the procedure.
