What is Root fillings

Root fillings can save a tooth that otherwise would have had to be completely removed.


Root fillings, also known as root canal treatments or Endodontics is a dental procedure used to treat infection at the centre of a tooth. The words 'root filling' can instill fear, but please be reassured that during the root filling procedure, you should not feel any pain as the treatment is performed under local anaesthetic, to ensure you remain comfortable throughout.


We are proud to be able to offer our patients service from our own in-house expert Endodontist for more advanced root canal treatments.

Dr Oli Hinton is our Endodontist. Oli is able to tackle more complex treatments, such as root fillings, using techniques that a General Dentist may not be able to provide.


Anyone who has ever experienced the pain and discomfort caused by an infected root canal will appreciate what an asset Oli is to our practice.

Endodontists are experts in saving teeth and are committed to helping you maintain your natural smile. Their expert training, perfected techniques, and superior technologies mean that you will receive the highest quality care and the best results.


That’s why it’s great to know that you can see Oli right here at Cottage Dental without having to move elsewhere for treatment!

Why would I need a root filling?

All teeth have a nerve supply that enables us to sense pain, pressure, and temperature.


The nerve is contained in the core of the tooth extending into canals that run through the roots of the teeth.  If this nerve supply is damaged through for example tooth decay, trauma, or gum disease it can result in the nerve becoming irreversibly inflammed or even dead and infected which can result in severe pain and facial swelling if not treated.


This is the tooth’s way of telling us something is wrong. However, this can also make it difficult to concentrate, eat, drink,or sleep.

 What is the treatment process - Cottage Dental

What is the treatment process?

A root filling, known as endodontic treatment involves using delicate instruments to gently clean and shape the root canals, remove any exposed or infected nerve tissues and wash them all out to ensure the root canal is clean.


Once adequately cleansed, a rubber-type filling material is placed within the canals to ensure that bacteria cannot easily re-enter the tooth.


The success rates for root filling are generally high. Your individual circumstances and likely success rates in your case will be discussed with you prior to proceeding with treatment. 

Once root filling is complete, the tooth requires restoration with either a filling or a dental crown, depending on how much tooth tissue remains. This will be discussed with you before commencing treatment.

I am nervous...

If you are in pain and are nervous or anxious, please do let us know, as we are very accustomed to treating patients who have dental anxiety or phobias. If this is the case, we can arrange for you to have sedation which will make you feel calm, relaxed and more comfortable throughout the procedure.
