Why do I need root canal treatment?
Root canal treatment is required when the pulp inside the root, or roots, of your tooth becomes inflamed or infected. Without treatment the infection can spread, which usually leads to loss of the tooth. The root canals are extremely small and are rarely straight, which is why the treatment is often undertaken by someone with the necessary finely-tuned skills and specialist equipment.
Why have I been referred by my dentist?
Root canal treatment is a complex and demanding procedure. Sometimes your dentist may feel that it would be better for you to be treated by someone with further training in root canal work. We have the experience and specialist equipment necessary to provide the best possible standard of care. Huddersfield Endodontics is renowned for its high level of expertise and, with over a decade of experience, you can be assured that you really are in the best hands.
