Root Canal Treatment

Contrary to popular belief, root canal treatments are often the most relaxing procedure we provide at South Devon Dental, commonly with our patients finding themselves nodding off in the chair!

Have you been told that a tooth cannot be saved?

Root canal treatment (also referred to as endodontics), is the treatment of severely broken down, inflamed or infected teeth. It is generally the last treatment option available in order to save a tooth and usually the required treatment to get our patients out of dental pain.

Control your own treatment.

Most importantly we want you to have control over what treatments are best for you as an individual. We always start with a casual and informal chat to understand your specific needs and concerns. Following that, our comprehensive oral health assessment will help us identify any issues that may need addressing. We are then able to discuss bespoke treatment options and allow you to decide which treatment you think to be the most appropriate for your circumstances.

We want you to have a wonderful experience at South Devon Dental and are thrilled to welcome new members to our practice. If you have any suggestions on how we can improve our services, please do let us know so that we can continue to improve the care and services we provide.
