The Facts

After we complete the RCT patients are very happy to have had it , find it straight forward, much better than what they thought it would be & delighted they get to keep their tooth at the end.

Honestly the process is very straight forward with us. We listen to you to understand what the issue is & run through some checks, this usually includes a radiograph (x ray) – this is all part of the service.

Before we start the RCT we numb the tooth having the RCT – once you feel you are ready then we start the treatment.

After the RCT Patient we expect the the pain & swelling to have resolved – much to the patients satisfaction.
