What patients should expect
All referral patients are seen for a consultation initially, to assess how predictable and feasible root canal treatment will be in their case. This will involve a thorough history and examination of the tooth in question, including up to date x-rays, before discussing the various options available. In some complex cases such as retreatments, or teeth with unusual anatomy, it may be recommended to have a 3D scan of the tooth in question (CBCT scan).
Treatment is usually performed over one or two visits, depending on the complexity of the case.
Following treatment, patients are discharged back to their referring dentist – we will only provide treatment which your referring dentist has agreed.
