You will need endodontic (root canal) treatment if the soft tissue at the centre of your tooth (known as the ‘pulp’) has become infected or damaged. This can happen due to a number of reasons, but generally happens when there has been a breach in the hard structure of the tooth by decay or trauma which allows bacteria to enter and infect the vulnerable pulp.
Although all dentists are trained to treat and diagnose simple diseases of the pulp, patients are referred to an endodontist when dealing with complex root canal cases, including those involving gum disease, to ensure the best predictable results are achieved.
Specialists Endodontists have 3-4 years of additional postgraduate training and more experience than general dentists, leading to a high success rate in our treatments. If you're looking for a reliable endodontist in London, then look no further!
Upon moving to the United Kingdom over a decade ago, Dr Daiva Pitkauskiene has worked and gained a reputation as a trusted Endodontist among her colleagues with her skills and passion.
After years of building an endodontic referral network, Daiva made a leap into building her own modern, sophisticated Endodontic practice in the heart of the Harley Street Medical District that is known for serving the community in central London with high quality medical and dental treatments.
Because endodontists limit their practice solely to endodontic treatment, they are efficient and precise. Performing root canal therapy equates to a more predictable outcome and a positive pain-free experience and faster healing, with treatment often completed in a single visit.
While root canal treatment is a highly effective solution for addressing pulp-related issues, we also explore alternatives to root canal treatment when appropriate. Our goal is to provide you with the most suitable treatment plan for your specific dental needs, which may include addressing gum disease or restorative dentistry.
At Wimpole St Endodontics, we’re committed to ensuring a safe and welcoming patient experience in a clean and organised environment.
We believe in perfecting our craft, and work hard to continue learning and evolving so we can provide our patients with the best quality of care.
