The Southgate Referral Practice treats patients with endodontic (root canal) problems on a referral only basis. We normally do not see patients unless they have been referred by another practitioner although exceptions are sometimes made. Patients will be returned to the referring practitioner at the end of root canal treatment for definitive restoration of the tooth (normally a crown but sometimes a filling).
Consultation appointments are not always necessary for patients referred by a dental practitioner although we are happy to make one if you wish. We normally suggest that a consultation appointment is made prior to embarking on root canal retreatment (redoing a root canal treatment that has failed) or before doing a surgical procedure.
Retreatment are more complicated and tend to have a more uncertain prognosis. Most primary root canal treatment (if the tooth has not been root canal treated before) can be done in one visit. Root canal retreatments are often better done over two visits. Treatment visits tend to be long due the complex work involved. They are normally of one to two hours duration.
