Our dentist and root canal expert is
Karim Jaffary (GDC Number 81294)
Dr Karim Jaafary (GDC No: 81294)
After spending a few years in general practice, Karim returned to Guy’s hospital and completed his master’s degree in Endodontics. Since 2007 Karim’s practice has been limited to root canal treatment. Karim believes creating a relaxing environment for his patients is an essential factor in contributing to the best possible treatment outcome.
Karim usually sees his patients for an initial consultation visit in which he discusses various aspects of the treatment. However, this consultation appointment can be combined with treatment if it is more convenient to the patient. In house sedation can also be provided during root canal treatment if required.
Karim is the organizer of the Endodontic Study Club in Tunbridge Wells, and he has both lectured and run hands on courses for dentists about root canal treatment.
What are root fillings?
Root fillings are also known as endodontic treatment or root canal treatment.
The procedure is needed when the nerve or blood supply of the tooth becomes infected from decay or injury.
When would I need root canal treatment
When the blood or nerve supply becomes infected, it may spread throughout the root canal system, which can lead to an abscess. The infected area of your mouth starts to collect pus and leads to swelling of the tissues, as well as varying amounts of pain from dull to severe.
The treatment is usually very successful at preserving the decaying tooth and preventing further infection.
Does root canal treatment hurt?
What if I do not have the treatment?
The alternative is to have the tooth removed. When the blood or nerve supply is destroyed it will not be able to heal and leaving the mouth infected can lead to an abscess, which can be painful.
It is always recommended to have as many natural teeth as possible, so removing the tooth entirely is not preferred over root canal treatment.
