General Treatments » Root Canal Therapy

Root canal treatment (also called Endodontics) is needed when the pulp inside your tooth becomes infected through tooth decay or damaged by an injury to your mouth. This infection may spread through the root canal system, which could eventually lead to an abscess, causing a great deal of discomfort. If root canal treatment is not carried out, the tooth may need to be taken out.

Our dentists can perform root canal treatment to stop the infection from spreading and will preserve as much of your tooth as possible. Using specific techniques and advanced equipment, you will receive a local anaesthetic and the treatment overall should feel no different to having an ordinary filling placed. The aim of the treatment is to remove all infection from the root canal. The root is then cleaned and filled to prevent any further infection. A temporary filling is put in and the tooth is left to settle. The tooth is checked at a later visit and when all the infection has cleared, the tooth is permanently filled. Root canal treatment is a skilled and time-consuming procedure which could take more then 1 session.

To keep your mouth in tip top shape we recommend you come in for regular hygiene appointments and dental check-ups.


  • Farid and his staff are friendly and very caring. Every effort is made to keep me informed about my treatment which in turn makes me confident that my care is the best I have ever had in my 73 years.
    - Professional practice
  • All the staff are caring and welcoming. The rooms are exceptionally clean and bright and if on a rare occasion you have to wait it is a pleasant room, very relaxing. Reminder appointment dates and times are emailed and texted in good time in case you have forgotten. There is also a toilet available for patients. I think the prices are very competitive and I am very happy with all the treatments I have received.
    - Outstanding care and attention
  • Incredible experience, I have never met a dentist like him, and the team is similarly wonderful!

  • I used to be scared of the dentist, but not so since I have been seeing 'F'. Besides taking excellent care of my teeth he is friendly, puts me at my ease, and makes me feel like a person, not just a patient. When treatment is necessary I always know what to expect, and am confident that it will be done with the minimum of discomfort.

  • Having moved from Surrey just a year ago, I had to find a new dental surgeon.

    Our new dentist, Dr Farid Rafatnia, at the Witterings Dental Practice is brilliant. I had quite a lot of work done including extraction, fillings and bridges. All were carried out within a cheery atmosphere and with great professionalism. Anyone who goes there will really benefit from this dental practice. The staff are all so cheerful and helpful too.
    - Mrs Audrey Cartwright, Wittering
  • Doctor Rafatnia has provided me with substantial dental treatment during early 2014 and I cannot recommend him enough. The treatment has been of the highest standard and to my complete satisfaction. Doctor Rafatnia is very pleasant, professional and reassuring.

  • We have been going to this practice for over 30 years. During this time my wife and I have always been treated with every care and consideration. Before joining The Wittering Practice I was always in dread of having any dental treatment but was very soon put at complete ease with the care and understanding that has always been shown. We have even had to call this practice from a cruise ship with a problem and was seen and treated on the day we returned. Many thanks.
